Importing Musescore Wav Files into Reason

So for some reason when I import wav files from Musescore into Reason, the sound gets all messed up. All of the instruments last twice as long as they need to and they keep glitching while they're playing. Maybe wav files in Musescore aren't compatible with Avid software? Is there any way to get around this? Maybe there's a different way to bounce it from Musescore to begin with? 

Reason instruments are nowhere near as amazing as Musescore ones that's why I NEED to be able to export and import the wav files. The only reason I need to use Reason is because I'm more familiar with mixing on there, the drumset needs to sound more fake/thin (weird I know), and I need to eventually record audio and mix it with the rest of the song. 

Edit: Instead of exporting all of the parts together, I imported them one at a time and this worked. I don't know why the DAW is responding better to the wav file that was exported separate from all of the other individual parts. Can anyone tell me why all of this happened?

If you have any thoughts or ideas, please respond! 

Thank you,
Leah Warrington

Original score removed...

Your Copyright Claim Dispute does not work.
An *original* score of mine from 1994 was taken down. The claim said the work "is related to the work Valse Triste by Jean Sibelius." 
You cannot be serious.
.The work, I. Jeu de Sons, is the first of six dance movements, and it written for 6 instrumentalists. It is not a waltz, nor is it even tonal. It features jarring rhythms, changing meters in a fast,obsessive, formal narration. The only "Valse Triste" it is related to is the second movement, named Valse Triste, which also does not resemble Sibelius.
The artwork, which was not cited, is cc by-sa 2.0 and is properly credited to Korean Modern Dance.
The complaint lists a "publisher" named "xxxxxxx" which is the name of a user here on MuseScore, whose bio indicates this score, of which I have the manuscript, was written before s/he was born.
I do realize you folks have your hands full with legal/copyright issues, but this is extremely frustrating and embarrassing to find your work has been removed (hidden) due to an incomprehensible complaint. 
Is this based on one user's say so? 

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.

Donation donate patreon liberapay

Hi on the page https://musescore.org/en/donate
- It is not cristal clear if donation goes only to the web site or also to the software development.
- It is also not clear if a "Pro" account on MuseScore.org helps the software dev ???
- On the Patreon page it is obvious that it goes to both
- It would be nice to add https://LiberaPay.com/
- It would be nice and encouraging to be able to donate for specific bugs or RFE. (not sure how to implement it. But when you hit a specific issue, that is when you are ready to pay!!)

[New Feature] The new form makes it possible to upload Public domain works.

As many of you know, we’ve been recently forced to revise our policy and restrict printing and downloading for basic accounts. Today we’d like to present a new update aimed at making it possible to download Public Domain scores.

What’s Public Domain?
Public Domain is the status of the work whose copyrights have expired and which is now available for download royalty free.
In the basic sense, all works published before 1923 are in the Public Domain, but in fact the status of particular works vary according to the country. Here is the link to the wiki page to learn more about Public Domain.
Music has existed for thousands of years and humanity has created tens of thousands of masterpieces We, like many of our users, would like these works to be distributed as freely as possible.

New Uploading form
We’ve changed the uploading and editing form of scores. Apart from standard fields to fill out, there’s now a new section called “Type of Composition”. In this section, users can mention what work exactly their scores are related to. The options are public domain, original composition or non-public domain.



In case you choose Public Domain, you’ll need to enter the name of the work your score is related to. After it’s been automatically checked, your scores will be available for unrestricted download.

Removing limits to download Public Domain scores
In the nearest future downloading and printing of Public Domain scores won’t be affected by the limits set for basic accounts. We believe it’s not right that users who create quality content have to pay to upload it. This is the first step towards resolving the issue.

Our further plans
- One of our next top priorities is to let original composers manage the downloading feature.
- We will mark up the existing sheet music library according to the Public Domain / Non Public Domain scores. We might need our Community help in this matter.

To sum up
This is a completely new functionality for Musescore, as we’re applying the system to check PD/nonPD compositions for the first time. We can’t exclude the possibility of you finding bugs in the way new algorithms work. Please, don’t hesitate to let us know about any possible issues.
Last but not least, I’d like to point out how grateful we are to our Community for all the support and understanding in this situation. We believe that actions speak louder than words and we’ll prove how important it is to us. We’ll continue to work on spreading and sharing music, and of course, taking good care of composers’, arrangers’ and copyright holders’ rights.

About the Staves...

This link can enlighten you to what I suggest : https://imgur.com/a/rL1Jh4n
Please start reading from the second image, and then above ( There's something up with the images' order in imgur... ) So basically what I suggest is to have the access to modify only specific pages' settings and not all pages'. That could be for other stuff too but now I can think of only making that when opening page settings... I think it could help save space...
Besides that I wanted to tell you about this video: https://youtu.be/4hZxo96x48A
The YouTuber seems to talk a bit strictly but his video is to be given credit I think so if you haven't taken notes I advice you to do so but you probably have I guess... And sorry for my bad english XD Even "Stave" might not be what I think it means... Uh but thanks for providing this free software... and it's on Linux too! :D

Splitting certain sections

I'm still kinda new to Musescore, so...sorry.

Um, I'm unable to split the notes in the violin and viola sections. Like, putting a whole note on the bottom of a staff and a quarter note at the top of the same staff, something like that. And I don't really know how to add another instrument halfway into a song. So if someone could walk me through the basis of that, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you for reading this!
