Check out my new personal project!

       I decided to write a piece with 3 completely random songs to challenge myself. I believe it will help me in the future when I write professionally and need to transition between movements. 
Please critique this piece! Or at least some feedback (thoughts, opinions, requests) would be nice. 
If you stick around for updates, expect a big run after where Moonlight Sonata left off. It will help to transition back into Hymn of Acxiom. 
- The harp part is a sound effect, not an actual part to be played 
- All diddled phrases are to be played as normal rolls 
- I will update sticking soon 
- This piece will eventually come full circle and will end with the ending of the first unoriginal piece 
- I changed all the settings so the sheet music would look as close to Sibelius as possible, but they don't go through well online 
- I used two soundfonts 
Pieces Used: 
- Hymn to Acxiom 
- La Marseillaise (French National Anthem, only minor section) 
- The second half of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata mvmt. 3 
Please critique! 
Thanks, Pete-Michael

The Piano Roll

I'm really liking the new piano roll feature. It really visualizes scores and helps you see how it looks on a piano, and you can get a better grasp of the music if you got something like an entire band arrangement.

If there's any way that it can be more stable and in sync without having to stop and play, I'm all for it  Especially when you got big and advanced scores like this one I recreated:

How do I "write" that a sustained note (flute, linked with ties, spanning two measures) should "fade out"?

This is for a piece which I am transcribing at the moment, and this is a flute part.

In this part, 4/4 with tempo 70, I need to tell that a same sustained note (a half, then a dotted half, then an eighth, all tied) should go from mf to pp, and as you guessed, this spans two measures.

I fail to see how I can do this. I have succeeded in adding a bar line and dynamics but it won't do that on playback which probably means I am doing it wrong.

What should I do?

First line - the long story....

 I confess I'm annoyed. For some time the first lines were missing. After the last update you are usually back on the first page. They are still missing on the second page. When I bought the app, everything was fine. The updates have brought the problem. When will this be solved? I like to use musecore, but that's really a problem. Please, please fix that soon. 

UI options — large score previews on mobile

Score previews on the following profile links are TOO BIG and take up 1+ screens, requiring multiple scrolls to see the next score


> Profile> Scores

> Sets> Specific Set
Notice for the last link, because I’ve included score info Just one score requires two or three scrolls on mobile since lyrics and score info are included. They should either be reduced significantly or just look like the “My Scores” screen — cleaner and easier to navigate on mobile (and PC imho)

Thank you!

Option to send pictures and audio through private messages.

I think this would be a great feature, as there are some things that I wouldn't mind sharing with certain people that I don't want everyone to have access to. Also, having it where you can send it directly from your device without having to have it online somewhere else, would be helpful.
However, I think that the user that you're sending it to needs to have the option to approve or deny you sending something, as spammers might send inappropriate pictures, etc.

Play panel

Is there any way of seeing a smaller/plainer Play Panel which only shows the duration of the piece? The numbers were bigger in Musescore 2 and easier to read. I only use play Panel to check where I am in the duration of a piece. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. 

Send to YouTube — score display issues

1) Scores with more than 5 staffs
Problem: YouTube Transfer cuts off staff 6+

2) Scores with more than 1 Lyric Verse
Problem: YouTube Transfer condenses verses and obscures all lyrics

3) scores with Staff or System Text
Problem: even if I adjust the text manually or choose automatic placement, YouTube transfer results in the staff or system text obstructing other staff elements

4) Display of multiple systems on a single YouTube frame
Problem: YouTube transfer stacks Systems on top of another system in a single Frame on YouTube, obscuring lyrics on the system displayed on the bottom

A rating system is desperately needed

I search for an arrangement of a popular piece and I am overwhelmed with results:

- Half are just garbage or low effort attempts.
- Some are reasonable arrangements but still miss the mark
- Many are duplicates of another user's submission with slight modifications
- Finally(!), there will be 1 or 2 excellent arrangements

As the popularity of Musescore's online hub increases (this is a good thing!), there absolutely NEEDS to be a system to rate and sort content. Sorting by "Relevance" seems to return results based on views (and maybe favorite counts?) which rather arbitrarily promotes whatever submission is oldest. If it wasn't for the thumbnail pictures giving me a good visual clue of the quality of the piece, I would rarely search for sheet music on this site.

The current Favorites feature is great, but just because I like a piece or think it worthy of promotion doesn't mean I want it saved to my Profile. As a result, I use the Favorite button sparingly, as it should be. A ratings system, separate from Favorites, needs to be implemented.

A ratings system!

I see that this topic comes up periodically, and the usual discussions ensue over whether negative feedback (e.g. thumbs down, 1 star, etc) is against the spirit of the site and so on... but regardless of implementation, can we all agree that this site will soon become near unusable as a content-finding platform without some type of ratings system?
