Sound Not Playing

So I'm currently working on copying a piece that I made a sort of arrangement on from Flat.io onto Musescore but the "Violin" and "Cello" ensembles aren't playing any sound whenever I hit the play button to listen to it.

I've been trying to mess with the inspector and velocity settings but it hasn't done anything. Can someone kindly help out? Much appreciated if someone could.

Copyright Policy Question

Hi,
I do a certain amount of transcribing sections of classical works for my own education and analysis. Often they are twentieth century pieces and some are still in copyright. I would like to share some of them here, but I've held off because of those copyright concerns. I know it's a long shot, but is there some combination of settings (license/download) that would allow me to publish them here without infringing copyright, since they are intended for educational use?

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

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.

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? 

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!
