Feedback Time!

Its Time!

I completed an arrangement of a piece by Handel with a preferable custom audio (because the other one is too echo-ish and too "mush" in sound), the piece I arranged is a movement from Royal Fireworks named "La Rejouissance". The piece is for young string players. Please give me positive feedback, all is welcomed!

Some SERIOUS and Clear help needed for inputting brushes in Musescore

Hello All,
I'm trying to make a backing score for Autumn In New York and if you've heard and know the song, the drum part only uses brushes in it. I've looked up videos on YouTube, I've searched it on Bing, still don't know how to do it. My Drum part has literally nothing in it, no notes or anything, so if you could please help, can we start from that and fill me in step by step.

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. :)
