Allow to have 3 or more voices per staff, instead of just 2

    Agreed. as it stands it's unusable for anything more than the simplest drum notation unless you split the kit across multiple parts. One voice for the hi-hats, one voice for the kick drum and nowhere to put the snare.

    @frenchmustard I completely agree with your statement though I'm just pointing out that it is okay for jazz drum notation which usually does not use more than two voices.

    Agreed. Noteflight needs to add a feature to allow 3 or more voices per staff, rather than just the upper/lower voices currently allowed.

    3 voices per staff is essential for writing solo guitar music. Thanks!

    I'm actually trying to finish a collection of guitar pieces very soon and really need that third voice. Thanks much!!!

    This is an absolute MUST. Guitar scores are extremely limited without this.

    Having a middle voice for writing guitar music is absolutely necessary. I posted a year ago about this. It would be really great if you could add that feature. Also circled numbers for string indication.

    Piano music. especially if it's contrapuntal, needs up to 4 voices per staff. Three is an absolute must.

    I agree that three parts is very necessary for writing a variety of music. I am currently having issues writing a percussion part for a full band without adding an extra part I really don't need for percussion. I have also had issues with vocal writing in the past when I needed three parts.

    I second this. But also, it would be great to be able to add i single note in a measure, a note that doesn't necessary belong to a voice. Example a single half note in a 4/4 measure written as a voice implies a half paus which just distracts.

    Definitely agree with the above!

    I have a piano piece I am working on, and there simply is no way to notate the cluster chords (one note added every beat in a ⁵⁄₄ time signature) without adding a third staff, which makes it read like a piece of organ music.
