Note entry needs a triplet selector

 
I don't see how to include pictures here, or I would show you. Stay with the long description. This was a feature of a notation program that I had in 1986 on an Atari computer! (yeah, I'm *that* old)

Why not include a special "duple-triple" selector in note entry? Entering music that shifts from regular duple (eighth notes) to triplet (eighth note triplet) should be as easy as shifting from eighth note to quarter note. The current tuplet system is more awkward than it should be.

You would click on the added button to change modes.  The appearance of the button will change depending on the mode. When duple (this is how it is now) it would show two eighth notes beamed. When in triple mode it would show three eighth notes beamed. In triple mode, if you select eighth note and enter a note, it would start an eighth-note-triplet to cover one quarter note. In duple mode, the eighth note would be just as it is now. Triplet mode quarter note will start a quarter-note-triplet that covers two beats.

This is not a replacement for the current tuplet system. I only want to enhance note entry. This enhancement would make it easier to enter triplets. Other tuplets would be done with the current setup.
 

I’d like to get to know you guys so let’s talk!

I know i am that annoying teenager that posts things all the time and is on almost 24/7,but i would like some discussion so let me start off...

Oh p.s personal info(if you wanna know)
I am a 14 y/o boy with sadness issues,and i like hoodies.Also my favorite animal would either be a fox or a wolf.

What are you like as a person?

Well, I'm a diamond. A person with many facets.

I'm normally a really nice and quirky person. If I'm feeling generous or loving, I won't mind giving out goods to ya. My brain often over-fires itself, and I think too fast sometimes. And I just might occasionally tell you what you are feeling and why you feel like that. I also beat myself up a lot because of my own expectations, and I can be really hard-headed at times. Nine times out of ten, a long hug will fix most of my sadness issues. I think it will, nobody's ever hugged me like that before. But I will weird you out in a few minutes if you actually find me.

Challenge for a piece?

Let's try a challenge for composers: make a piano piece only for one hand (you can pick either one but you have to keep using it for the rest of the piece). The hard part about this challenge is that it should sound like it is for two hands (it helps if you listen to your piece while closing your eyes). You can notate it for two staves or one; it doesn't matter as long as it's not impossible to play and it sounds as though two hands are playing the piece.

This isn't really a competition as much as it is giving new ideas/a challenge. If you do try to do it, then post the link to your work in this discussion. Have fun! :)

Can you add a delay for trill

So in a piece I'm making there's a half note with a trill on it. The way trills work in MuseScore is having the trill immediately begin when the note is played. I was wondering if it were possible to make the trill start, say, a eighth rest after the note begins, instead of immediately. I looked in all the element settings and note properties and I couldn't find what I needed.  Any help?

Is creationism a valid scientific theory?

I would say yes, it is.

The definition of a theory is:
" a supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained. "

I believe creationism fits this definition for a couple of reasons:
A) It explains the world we live in based on the authority of the bible
B) Its principles are based on beliefs that superseded even the scientific method. Therefore it is not made invalid simply because it has been though to be temporarily 'disproved' by the scientific community. 
C) It forms a coherent and logical argument for the way this world works based on the axiom that the bible is a reliable source. 

For those who would argue against my view, two possible places to start are:
I) Trying to undermine the authority of the bible, because without its authority the creationism theory is pointless. This is the most effective but also the hardest means of disproving the creationism theory. 
II) Disproving the logic behind the creationism theory. This is slightly easier to do but less effective because it does not disprove the authority in which the logic is based on, meaning that a new logical explanation can be formed which fills the gaps in the old one. 

I look forward to having a civil conversation with you all ;)

Trump on Twitter

What are your thoughts?
Personally, I hate him. He tweets so much!! For example, on January 26th, he tweeted 12 times! Also, he clearly doesn't have a good grasp of the English language. He capitalizes the first letters of random words in a sentence, like Country and, you know what, just go look on Twitter. 
Also that time when literally Homeland Security said the numbers he tweeted out were completely fake.
I think Twitter can be useful for a president to communicate with the country, but he is not using it appropriately at ALL.
A good portion of his tweets are racist and offensive.
I am currently on my school laptop, so I can't provide actual links as I am not able to get on Twitter, but I can look them up on my phone and quote them directly.

Note: This is not a debate about Trump's effectiveness. It is about his use of Twitter. They are two different things.

Have fun!! xD
