New Piano Roll Feature on the musescore.com

Today marks the release of MuseScore Piano Roll. Piano Roll is a popular and convenient method to display piano notation in a way that not only simplifies learning a new piece for novice musicians who lack a teacher, it also beautifully visualizes each score.

Give it a try by simply clicking on the Piano Roll icon now available on all solo piano scores. Be sure to tell us what you think in Improving MuseScore.com!



All of these improvements are designed to not only make MuseScore.com the most valuable resource online for sharing and discovering great musical works but for learning them as well.

We hope you’ll be as excited about this new feature as we were to create it for you, and as always we look forward to your feedback.

This is just the first of an exciting series of updates and releases for MuseScore PianoRoll; we're already hard at work on improving the experience!

Competition for Non-Pro users!

Hey guys,

Last year I did a competition for non-pro users in which the winner received a pro account for a month as well as a few other things.
I am starting up the competition again! 
So if you are a non-pro user that would like a pro account, please head to this link: https://musescore.com/groups/isaac-glover-non-pro-composition-competition 
There will be a discussion (the only one in the group) that will tell you what you need to do in order to enter. 
If you won in the previous competition, you will not be allowed to enter into the competition again. If you previously entered but didn't win you are more than welcome to go again this year!

Hope to see some submissions soon!! 

Scores crash page within 10 seconds but only on mobile, works fine on desktop. Similar scores work perfectly.

These are the most recent of a series of pep band music, the 8th and 9th respectively. Every single one has worked until these two, which reload the page automatically within 10 seconds. It tries to load it again before giving up. The playback works correctly until the page reloads. This only happens on mobile, but on my desktop there are no problems. Is there any reason why this may be happening? There’s nothing setting these apart from the other arrangements and I’ve tried polishing up the files and reuploading. Any help would be appreciated.

El Capitan for my desktop

Groups missing

Groups dosn't seem to be implemented, anyway I can't find groups on my iPhone 7.
Some of the scores i'm putting in here is copywrited and I only want to share with my choir (original is purchased for all members) but the choir members can't get access to the group (marked private) I created for this purpuse 
Maybe someone have a solution or workaround?

Unable to import to MuseScore iOS

After a recent update I'm no longer able to import anything (.mscz files) into the iOS MuseScore App. After one update it removed my entire library I had imported, so I imported a load again. Now I find I can't import anything anymore. This is the same on my iPad as well as my iPhone.

To import, on the Desktop version of MuseScore I type up the music I want & save it into a cloud based location (iCloud Drive) as a .mscz file. I then go to that location on my iPad, tap on the share button & select Copy to MuseScore.
If I do this now, the MuseScore App will flash open, but nothing will happen. When I do this the file should be accessible via Library > SongBook.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? There have been a few more minor updates since, but the issues persists.

If you'd like anymore information regarding this, please let me know.

Thanks,
Adam

Make something about spam descriptions!

Make something with this kind of pages:
https://musescore.com/user/12225816/scores/3625056
https://musescore.com/user/9026621/scores/5050422
https://musescore.com/user/9026621/scores/5158581

They are clearly spam description with the aim of showing those post on almost all searches people make. And when 2-3 of this posts turn out in search results they also make the website load slow, it takes like 5-6 seconds until the page is fully loaded.

Please edit them, or put a limit to the number of characters people can use in descriptions.

Saved for later notepad

Often when I see new scores on the site that might be of interest to me I'm not in a position to listen to them right away. When I would have the time, say a few days later, I can't usually remember or find those scores any more. I would find a personal saved for later notepad where one could store links to interesting scores (and perhaps discussions, too) with one click a very useful feature to the site.

Back button issue (bug), inconsistent, only top part of screen shown

After using the in app back button I see only the top part of the screen of "Songbook".
I have this issue on my S2 TAB in portrait mode. Once I turn my screen to landscape and back again, I have full screen again.

If I use the TAB back button, I am thrown back to "Your collections" after it flashes past the "Songbook" screen. In this case I have full screen.

If I start in landscape mode, the action of in app and TAB back button remains different, however in app now maintains full screen.

(Unfortunately I first posted at the wrong forum https://musescore.org/en/node/289477]

CCC#1 - "The Watzmann" and Admin/Judge

The wait is over! The first competition is here!

That didn't take long! Thank you to everyone who has joined the group in the last 24 hours or so. :D

So, I have a couple of things to talk about, the first is announcing the competition, the second is regarding Admins and Judges etc, so I want to quickly apologise for the lengthy post.

But let's start with the fun bit!

CCC#1 - "The Watzmann" by Caspar David Friedrich.

"The Watzmann" is a painting by artist Caspar David Friedrich, made in the mid 1820s. It is a fantastic landscape painting, and although I know nothing about art, I absolutely love this painting.

This challenge was inspired by a composition task I was given at school, where we had to write a piece of music inspired by a painting. I chose a different painting by Caspar David Friedrich, which inspired me to look up some more of his art to use for this competition.

So, the challenge is fairly simple: Write a piece of music inspired by this painting, "The Watzmann". I look forward to seeing what you can come up with.

A few quick rules/details:
1) You may use any ensemble of instruments.
2) The piece must be between 1.30 and 5 minutes long.
3)  The piece must be original, not an arrangement.

You will be given a mark out of 10 for your piece, along with some feedback. You have until Sunday 19th May which gives you one month to complete the piece. I will announce the winners as soon as possible after that.



Admin / Judge

So, basically, if anyone would like to be an admin and judge in the competition, please message me. Your job will be to help me mark the scores, and make sure the group runs smoothly. Obviously, you won't be able to participate in any competitions which you help judge, so sorry about that. If no-one wants to, I can do it myself, but it would make things a lot easier for me, so message if you're willing to help. Thanks!

Conclusion

There. I apologise again for the long post. I'd never get away with this on RSA. :/
Thanks again to everyone who helped boost this group to 30 members yesterday. :D
I look forward to seeing all of your entries to the competition. Obviously you don't have to, but if you are entering, it would be helpful if you could just let me know in the comments. Have fun!
