MDL + More

In addition to MDL, I think many could agree that MuseScore also needs MFE (MuseScore Front Ensemble), to work in conjuction with MFE as a soundfont. I understand it is hard to get nice sounds on an open-source software, but it would be nice to have. Here are suggestions for the soundfont in mind:

UPDATED SOUNDS
- Marimba (with 3 hardnesses); the marimba sounds a little bit like a toy xylophone with a deeper voice. It doesn't sound very rich.
- Vibraphone (with 3 hardnesses); the vibes don't exactly sound metallic enough
- Xylophone (with 2/3 hardnesses)
- Glockenspiel (with 2 hardnesses)
- Chimes/Tubular bells (with 2 hardnesses); the chime sound isn't round enough and is a bit abrasive in timbre

NEW SOUNDS
- Crotales
- Gong (PLEASE)
- Suspended/China cymbals with pre-recorded rolls and hits on different sizes (similar to what VDL does)

And as well, a nice function that could be EXTREMELY useful is the ability to upload samples into a score by mp3 or wav.

Songs for alto and bari sax

So I have been playing alto for almost two years and I started on the bari sax and I'm pretty good. But all my band music was thrown out for my alto sax(didn't play bari in my band) and I'm looking for songs to play and learn. I want to get better at Bari for the upcoming school year since thats why I'm playing the bari over the summer. Thanks! Hard, easy and in between songs are just fine :)

Offering scores

I arrange simple but effective numbers for small drum and bugle corps. I haven't been able to figure out how to upload my scores to "give back" for some of the scores I've downloaded to build on. I'd appreciate any advice

Notation be like

So I usually am not in the presence of staff paper, and I absolutely love graph paper for many things, so I created my own system of notation for when I have graph paper but no staff paper. It’s rudimentary and inefficient, but it makes practical sense. It’s not really meant to play off of, it’s more meant to keep track of rhythms and pitches for future use. Currently I’m using this system to transcribe and transport the sax solo from Youngblood Brass Band’s “Brooklyn” into Flat.io without changing tabs or removing instruments. I’m mildly proud of this system; I’ve used it in the past, up to a year ago, but I’ve refined it.
