Inputting playing techniques with the popover

You can input playing techniques using the playing techniques popover, both during step input and by adding them to existing notes.


  1. In Write mode, do one of the following:
    • Start note input.

    • Select an existing note to which you want to add a playing technique.


      You can only add playing techniques to one note at a time.

  3. Enter the appropriate entry for the playing technique you want into the popover.

    For example, enter non vibrato or tongue click.

    When you start entering a playing technique into the playing techniques popover, a menu appears that shows valid playing techniques containing the letters/words you enter, which you can select.

  4. Press Return to close the popover.


The playing technique is added to the selected note.

During step input, playing techniques are input at the caret position.
