I have a choral score I am working on and I have included a shout in the lyrics and have notated it with a different shape but when I am playing back the piece the shout sounds at the pitch where the X is located.  Can I turn that individual pitch off for that particular incident?  If so how?
 
Thank you

Sure. There are several approaches. The easiest is with Jari's JW Change plugin. Highlight the note(s) and under Note Entries/Playback, choose Mute. if you don't have the plugin, in Speedy, ctrl-click the measure, navigate to the note, and deselect Playback. That is essentially what the plugin does.

I suppose another approach is to place the silent notes in another layer then assign that layer to an unspecified instrument. That might make sense if you have a bunch of these notes, but the individual note editing sounds easier if it is just a few notes.

You might also try this:

Create an articulation that uses a blank character (so it is hidden). For playback, set it to Change Velocity and enter -127 (to cover all possibilities). It works in my test.

How exactly do you "deselect playback" using the speedy entry tool? I have been unable to find any mention of it when looking at the speedy options. The reason I am asking is because I am attempting to make some 64th note tremolos which do not take up an entire page; so I figured I could use the TGplugin to get the notation I want, deselect it from playback, and use hidden notes for playback. Unfortunately the last two parts of that plan havent worked so well.

Choose Speedy.
Click on the page somewhere other than a measure so the selection box disappears.
Then hold down CTRL and click in the measure you want.

You will need to move from entry to entry (starting with the first entry of the measure) using the Next button to find the one you want. You have to keep careful count. Sometime checking whether the entry is a note or rest (if your measure has rests) can help you navigate.

And a similar trick is to create an expression that transposes the note +100 semitones, putting it out of playback range. You then need a "Loco" expression (which sets transpose to 0) to resume the playback on the next note.

I have found this is a very clean, reliable way to handle those "Play 1st time only", "Play second chorus only" etc things in repeated sections.
