Hi
 
I'm a newbie here, and my question is:
 
How can I separate note lines from a track?   I have midi files with 4 note lines (SATB) each one, and I want to have them divided in a single file....
 
Is there any function or tool I can use?  I am using FINALE 2005.
 
I hope someone can help me.  THANKS

OK. A couple of things. Firstly, please post in either the Mac or PC forum. This forum is for Finale Plug-in Development.

Secondly, Do you mean that you have a MIDI file whose parts you want to split onto different staves? When you import a MIDI file, there is a dialogue box that shows you all the options, including how the tracks are split onto different staves.
However, some MIDI files (known as Format 0) are composite and cannot be split into separate parts.

yes, I have a file with 4 parts, 3 of them in the uper clef (I think is the treble) and the other one is in the bass clef.

I want to find a quick way to have them as follows:

one stave for SOPRANO
one stave for ALTO
one stave for TENOR and
one stave for BASS

I can do it by copying every single note into a diferent stave, but is a very long process and I have many files to wrk with.....

I hope to explain myself better....

Can I continue posting here? or move to the other forum?

Thanks for your help.

How can I know if the file is composite?

I have tried both, the "into: channels" option and "into: tracks".... but it doesn't separete them. =S

I suspect that the MIDI files were created as two tracks: bass and all other parts. If the three upper parts are on one track then you cannot separate them, in the same way that you cannot unmake a cake and get eggs, flour etc.

Where do the MIDI files come from? Perhaps they can be made more suitable for improting into Finale in MIDI editing software first?

I presume that the upper parts appear as one chord of three notes, rather than three separate layers. In Finale, you can show one layer at a time and then move each one to different staves, but I think this is not what you have.
