Congratulations MuseScore Team

By this means I just want to give my thanks to the entire team of MuseScore that works intensely and has an understanding and tolerance as the immensity of the ocean and its deep waters to meet so many problems and requests from so many users equally Demanding. Continuation of good work and congratulations on your site that is a success.

Here's some things I'd like to suggest for the next Musescore update

1. Change the timbre of the instruments from the brass section (soundfont issue)

What I noticed, mostly from the French horns and trumpets, is that the sound of the instruments at the forte dynamic is unrealistic. The brass is made up of powerful instruments. In fact most of the brass instruments, at that dynamic, have more force and "oomph" of them so they easily stand out. When I compose pieces for orchestra with the French horns, there were moments when they would be drowned out with the rest of the orchestra to the point where I can't hear them as much as I wanted them to. Same goes with the trumpets.

2. Adjust the vibrato

You guys did a great job implementing this into the instruments that deserve it (especially for strings). However there were moments when I wanna turn down the vibrato or increase the vibrato depending on the context of what I'm composing. Maybe a separate knob for this specific function would be nice.

3. Single note dynamic change for notes with tremolo

The single note dynamic changes have been one of my all time favorite Musescore updates and I'm extremely grateful for that. However I noticed that you didn't do the same thing with the notes with the tremolo feature. That needs to change.

4. Change the soundfont for some of these articulations for some instruments
- Strings with the "harmonic" articulation
- Strings with the "snap pizzicato" articulation

5. Adjust the glissando feature so that it spans two staves at once instead of just one so us Musescore users don't have to do this manually (for piano and harp)

You don't have to change all of these suggestions. Just offering some things to keep in mind based on my concerns with the latest updates in case you are willing to continue improving your software in the future. :)

Public/Open Discussions to All Groups?

I've noticed several people spamming "look at my score" discussions since the community page was released. I think it would be a great idea if there is a public/open discussion setting where you can tag all of the groups you want to share a discussion with. Then we wouldn't have to scroll past 20 duplicates of one particular discussion in the community page. The members of each of the groups tagged will see the discussion on their dashboards/community page once.
