Hellohelloohellooo

My name is Caroline and I just joined! A bit about me:

David Bowie is my favorite singer
Queen and Guns n' Roses are my favorite bands
I love cats :3 
I play piano and an eensy weensy bit of guitar
My biggest pet peeves are my siblings and when someone steps on the back of my shoe and doesn't apologize
I love to read, write, draw, and sing
I only listen to Rock music from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. The only Pop I listen to is Michael Jackson and Prince, NEVER modern pop :P

I hope to meet some new people here and I'm super excited to be a part of this group! Toodles!

Create a Book?

Is there a way to combine multiple scores into one document such that I can create one PDF to upload for printing as a book?

I think I can copy and past them all into one large MS document and convert that, but I think that would involve a lot of manual steps of inserting breaks and frames? Is there a way to merge multiple scores?

If not in Muse Score, is there a way to merge the PDFs I've created? I've found a number of sites online that claim to do that quickly and easily for free, but so far every one of them lets me upload multiple PDFs and then asks for money, despite saying they were free.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.

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//////

Taktgröße verändern

Ich habe einen vierstimmigen Chorsatz.
Den Sopran, den Alt und den Bass habe ich ausgeblendet. So dass ich nur den "Tenorsatz" habe. Jetzt habe ich aber einige Takte die wenig oder keine Tenorstimme haben, aber immer noch in der Größe erscheinen, als würde der Text des z. B. Basses noch dort stehen.
Gibt es eine Möglichkeit diese Takte kleiner zu bekommen?
Das Stauchen habe ich schon gemacht. Die Takte können aber noch kleiner sein.
Damit ich den Satz auf eine Seite bekomme.

Vielen Dank für eure Hlife :-)

Musescore.com - Night Theme

Hey, no advertisement intended.

I created a musescore dark theme, that is available at userstyles.org. To aply it you have to get the addon stylish or stylus.

I just wanted to inform you people, that there are ways, to use musescore in a more eyepleasing way at nocturnal hours. (not talking about taste here;) )
Other styles are available too. Also there are diffrent addons to globaly change your browser. Just browse the addon /plugin pages of your webbrowser.

Thought I mention this, because a while ago, I asked myself here if something like that is possible to the developers, while some other people also where interested.

Best regards

What happened?!

Did MuseScore just run out of money, switch to a new IT staff (idk the technical names of anything development related), or just completely give up on life? It seems as though the site was great before and Songbook was good. Since then everything has gone to crap with poor costumer support/money scams*, new daily bugs, and old function-breaking bugs. You can’t even play scores without the musescore app. I hope made the point clear for anyone living under a rock for the past several months, I just want to know if anyone knows the story on this site's downfall?

Overall the issues with bugs in the website and app have been a major turnoff for me and the fellow users I know irl and got involved in MuseScore in the first place. 

EDIT: *Money scams- too strong of a phase, my apologies. I was referring to the trouble cancelling a free trail and the subsequent $49.99 charge for an unwanted annual membership.

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:

MuseScore's transition to Freemium and cross-platform access

Hello everyone,

Historically, MuseScore has had two mobile apps for Android: a paid one (Songbook) and a free one (MuseScore). There's also a desktop version of MuseScore where users can have  Pro accounts that are not linked to any of the apps which means they can't use their premium features there.
The vast majority of users use MuseScore Android to browse scores and in only a couple of years of its existence, about a million users have launched it at least once. These numbers inspire us to move forward and continue improving MuseScore products even further. 

Today, I want to announce a significant update that will be released shortly and after which MuseScore will transition to a cross-platform Freemium model.
This means that we'll unify subscriptions and accounts of the two existing apps and the desktop version of MuseScore. This way, Pro users from desktop will finally be able to use all premium features of the mobile app which will help us concentrate our efforts on improving it. 
Why are we doing this?

Our business model is 'Make products, not content' 
We put a lot of effort into improving our products. Mobile apps are a direction that we deem one of the most prospective ones and where we put the most effort into. 
While some companies make their apps free in stores but ask money for the access to scores, we negotiate with right holders of the scores in order to give our users free access to all public scores provided by our community.
We're searching for new competitive monetization models that will allow us to stay on par with market's powerhouses and we want to achieve this by continuously improving our services. 

All scores should be available to everyone
This is our core value. Any user from any device should have the most convenient way of accessing scores. The main advantage of the freemium model is that it allows all users to explore the app and upgrade their access if they like it enough. And by 'like' we firstly mean quickly and easily finding what users need or getting a lot of views on their own scores.  

Freemium works, it's how the majority of the mobile apps operate
We believe that the freemium model is the most prospective way of the mobile app development and that it'll let us accumulate more resources for turning MuseScore Android from a simple score browser to an invaluable tool for any musician.
Pro users shouldn't have any restrictions when they use our products. From the very first day of our work, we've been thinking how to give more value to pro users. Since then, we've introduced a lot of new features most important of which is being able to access all features of the mobile app. Users who previously bought MuseScore Songbook will soon get the access to the full version of the MuseScore mobile app (to get the access you’ll need to log in to your new account). 

Freemium means free
We'd like to note that these changes don't mean our apps will be hidden behind a paywall. The key functions of the app such as search and playback will remain free. However, some extra features like the offline access, opening scores from the local storage and a couple of others will be paid. 

We want more feedback and more ideas
We want to make our apps the best and the most useful for beginners and pros alike. That’s why we want to implement as many helpful instruments as we can and looking forward to receiving feedback from you. Bringing all products together will let us concentrate on developing them. If you have any questions or ideas, feel free to share them here or in the ‘Improving MuseScore’ group. Thanks for reading!
