Layouts with clef/transposition overrides

Default clef and transposition overrides allow you to assign the same player to multiple layouts and have its music appear with a different clef and/or transposition in each layout. Any changes you make to the player’s music are automatically updated in all layouts.

It is a common requirement in pieces for wind/concert bands and ensembles with flexible instrumentation to produce multiple versions of the same part, each using a different transposition, such as B, A, and F. This allows performers playing instruments with different transpositions to play together.


It is not necessary to specify clef and/or transposition overrides for single transposing instruments. Dorico Pro automatically transposes notes as appropriate for the instrument transposition, and you can select instruments with different transpositions and clefs by default in the instrument picker.
