Adds a wood block instrument to the bottom of the score, and adds notes appropriate for a simple click track.

Normally you can use the built-in click track from the mixer, but for Cloud Sharing and some other situations, a separate click track can be useful.

If you need a more sophisticated click track, consider purchasing Roman Molino Dunn's Click Track plugin at

If the time signature is n/d, the plugin will write n notes of duration d into the bar. For a 6/8 bar it will write 6 eighth notes, and the first note in the bar will be a different pitch than the other notes. It will adapt to changing time signatures and handles an initial pickup bar.

In Sibelius 7 and later, the added staff can be hidden.
