Issues converting PDF with Audiveris

Hi everybody,

I got 11 pieces to prepare for next week and I'm too slow reading *PANIC*
I found about Audiveris https://musescore.com/import !
worked fine the first pdf but then kept the second pdf in queue since yesterday without any result, all scores have good quality, contrast an not so complex!

Is there a way to take out the music out of queue so I can retry for example?

Can I do the computing with my machine instead of queue it somewhere? 
and/or
Did somebody tried to install Audiveris from the Github repo?
I have a Mac and before installing a virtual machines for running Windows so I can install it I wanted to make sure it works etc!

Thank you for any tips or advices :D

How to have different timings in the left and right hands

Hello,

I'm trying to transcribe a measure in Chopin's Op 64 No 1 Waltz.  The timing for the piece is 3/4, however there is a measure that has 4 quarter notes in the right hand.  I've been able to get MuseScore to show it by creating a custom tempo for that measure, but there is an invisiable rest, and I can't get the spacing right in the left hand.  

See the link below for a picture.

Thank you your help!

Embedded iframe with YouTube recording fails in some web browsers

This is a problem which has existed for quite a while, and it would be good to sort it out definitively.

Many of us use the "Share" option to embed an HTML "iframe" of the MuseScore player in our own website. It's really useful for making practice files for choral societies and church choirs.

With a MuseScore file that creates its own playback, it usually doesn't matter which web browser you use: it plays normally.  But if the score is sync'd to a performance recording on YouTube as the default sound source, then the playback doesn't work on all web browsers. 

Here is the result of a test of various browsers which I ran today:
-  Chrome 73.0.3683.75  = broken
-  Edge 42.17134.1.0 = broken
-  Firefox 65.0.2 = plays ok
-  Internet Explorer 11.648.17134.0 = plays ok
-  Opera 58.0.3135.107 = plays ok
-  Vivaldi 2.3.1440.60 = plays ok

You can run the test yourself on my HTML page, where the SATB player is linked to a YouTube performance by Birmingham Conservatoire Chamber Choir:

CC#3: Electro

Starting March 1, we will be accepting entries for CC#3.  The rules of this contest are simple: Compose an original EDM song.  The following is an example of EDM on musescore: https://musescore.com/nobleewe/scores/5322068

EDM stands for Electronic Dance Music and is characterized by synthesizers, repetitious chords and melodies, and a usually a drop of some sort.

You have until the end of March to post the link to your score in this discussion.  To make things easier for us, please put "CC#3" in your title and add it to this group.

See you then!

Thanks for invitation. I am a novice to music.

I am a novice to music, but not to math or science.  I am not sure that a scientist understands his use of the word "theory" the same way a musician or composer understands his use of the word “theory.”  

A scientist observes events and facts, and asks questions about them.  He designs an experiment to answer the questions.  After a number of experiments, he gets an idea, say, how the green stuff is working in a plant.  He confirms or refutes his answers to the questions.  After more work -observing and experimenting - his ideas about what is happening come together as a hypothesis.  The green stuff in leaves has something to do with making food for a plant to use.   You can bet other scientists who are interested in the subject are hard at work experimenting to get results that may or may not agree with earlier experiments about the green stuff.  When a lot of experimenting by a lot of people produces a lot of agreement about what is happening, a “theory” about photosynthesis emerges.  There was no “theory” of photosynthesis to start with.

I do not get the impression the foregoing process applies to music folks.  Maybe some music workers could explain how they work with respect to “theory.” 

I like water

water is the one compound that breaks the law of both physics and chemistry, water expands when it freezes, hot water freezes faster than cold water, the molecule H20 is the 2nd most common molecule found in the universe, the water we have in our body probs been in the dinosaurs b4, water droplets can move up a vertical surface if pulled by other water droplets, water entered our planet millions of years after our planet was formed//////
