Hello. I am composing an orchestral score, and I have clarinets 1 & 2 in the same stave, and when I try to write two separate lines of music in the same stave (using layers), the lower voice does not play back correctly. I have clarinet 2 starting on a B flat and holding through the measure, which plays initially upon playback, but when the clarinet 1 part comes in, the lower B flat does not hold throughout the entire measure. In fact, that lower B flat stops as soon as clarinet 1 comes in on the 32nd notes (see the attached image).

How do I fix this playback issue?

Interestingly enough, if I change that low B flat in clarinet 2 to an A, it will hold its proper duration during playback.

I am using Windows 8.1, and my Finale version is 27.2.0.144 

I'm also running NotePerformer 3.

Thanks!

The problem seems to be a midi conflict. The Bb in Layer 1 reattacks the same Bb of Layer 2, and I guess that both layers share the same midi channel.

Just an idea : in the ScoreManager, give Layer 2 a different midi channel.

That worked, thanks!

The reason being even though you had two layers you had only one clarinet player. Adding the additional channel added another clarinet. The same way as adding the clarinet in A did.
