I'd like to use "Ghost Notes" (replace note head with X) and ideally mute sound for "Ghost" note on play back. Any suggestions

Are you talking about a single note here and there - or a lot of notes, like all the notes in a selected region?

 

For a single note I would use the Specials Tools Tool, sub-tool Note Shape Tool.

A single note’s playback can be muted via the very technical Speedy Entry dialog box Edit Frame.

Is this the kind of thing you are looking for? This is all handled with percussion maps and layouts. You need to have a VST drumSynth that will produce the sounds.

 

Granted, Peter's solution is easier for isolated notes, which can be individually muted via the Speedy Entry "Edit Frame."

Re: Ghost notes

How can I enter ghost notes and mute them?

  • In Speedy Entry, click outside the staff so no measure is selected.
  • Then CTRL-Click on the (ghost) note you want to mute.
  • Uncheck the Playback box for the note.

 

You can mute multiple notes in the measure by clicking the Next button until you reach the position of the next note you wish to mute.

Then Option-click on the measure/staff with the (ghost) note you need to mute.


In the (very technical) dialog box Edit Frame, navigate to the note you need to mute, and uncheck the Playback box for the note.
