Performance Style Command
This command is used to insert a predefined performance expression into the staff. You can select among many pre-existing styles, most of which are the standard Italian spellings for the styles. Currently, only two styles alter the way the score is played back:
- Legato: This style causes all note events to be played to their fullest duration, as if all notes that follow the instruction were slurred to the following note.
- Staccato: This style causes all the notes that follow it to be played with a more staccato feel than normal.
All other styles currently change the style back to the default play back handling.
