Hi,

Don't know if I'm clear with the title, maybe my english is not so good !

I'm arranging music for a concert band, and I want some players to clap hands at the beginning.
To have the clapping sound, in score manager I chose in flute layer 2 for example a percussion sound.
Then, I entered some clap notes in the flute part with layer 2.
I can hear the sound, that's ok !

Now, I'd like the notes to be in the staff, around B5 or C5 (with a cross as note head) and still hear the sound.

Is it possible ?

I'm using Finale 2014.5

I attach an example of what I get for the moment.

If the clapping only lasts for the first four measures, your best solution might be to create a second staff as a percussion staff, set the map & layout to put the clap where you wish, change the staff name to flute, and then hide the real flute line for those measures and hide the clapping measures for the rest of the score.

For the Flute part, create the flute part to contain both staves and (again) hide the empty staves where appropriate.

If you already get everything but the look in what your picture shows, the easiest solution is to go to the percussion Layout and change the position and notehead of the clap sound. Maybe you can post the file and we can do the change for you to show how it can be done.

Thanks for your help
I can't find where to change the position and notehead of the percussion layout maybe because it is a flute layer 2 ...

It could be you are not using a percussion layout at all. Without seeing your file, we're only guessing. If the note we see in the picture is getting the correct playback, and no percussion layout is used, then you can hide that layer and use another layer (with playback muted) for seeing the notes you want. Position the non-playback layer where you want it and change the noteheads to x's.
