Do you think EA will screw Jedi Fallen Order up?

EA has proven to ruin what could've been a great game multiple times. They don't make it as cool as they built it up to be. And in order to get the full gaming experience of something lots of times you're going to have to spend incredible amounts of money. Now with the release of the New Jedi Fallen Order game coming in November. I'm very skeptical. But EA is working with another company on this game, so I'm not sure how it will turn out. What does everybody think?  

2 NEW CHANGES IN JAY AND JOHN'S CHALLENGES!!!

Some changes are in effect for making this group better, and more rewarding for our competitors and winners!

1. We will be providing feed back for each score instead of only 1st place winner to specify strengths and weaknesses in your scores for future reference. 

2. We will be keeping a list of JAY and JOHN'S CHALLENGES' winners in a separate discussion as a "WALL OF FAME" for recognition of first place winners, and as motivation for competitors.

Also Jay and I are reviewing your scores to decide the final winner this Saturday! And trust me when I say, it's not an easy decision. xD Thanks everyone!

-John & Jay

Anybody care to explain what's going on?

in Piano

OK. I've got a question for anybody out there.

Someone on Roblox recently asked me to transcribe a piano piece. 

I go to look at the piece itself and I see in the treble clef (2/4, if you are curious) 1 quarter note followed by an 8th rest followed by an eighth note proceeded by ANOTHER quarter note/eighth rest/eighth note in that same measure.
This pattern continues at various places throughout the song.

Does anybody want to explain this? Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks, everyone!

MuseScore introduces mobile practice mode

MuseScore introduces mobile practice mode 

Every day hundreds of thousands of people use MuseScore services for practicing music, learning scores or preparing for performances. The Catalog created by the MuseScore community is the biggest score library.

We’ve been recently putting a lot of effort into improving the product for performers, not only on the website but in the mobile app.

At the moment, our App processes scores the same way our desktop solution does. But mobile devices have their peculiarities (mainly because of the screen size and touch-interfaces). It’s not always convenient to read scores using our current mobile app, especially if users don’t want or don’t know how to manage more advanced app settings. Users have to turn pages all the time (even more often than when they use regular paper scores) if they’re using the Play mode. So, they can’t see the next measure when done playing the current one. Also, it’s not clear where to manage such settings as the metronome, tempo or transposing.

Taking all this into account, we’ve launched another update which is aimed at the global improvement of mobile apps for professional performers and students.

Please, welcome Practice Mode. Now you’re one click away from entering a special mode, aimed at simplifying the process of playing an instrument and learning new scores.

In this mode, users see scores in a "continuous view" shown in one line with perfect readable scaling applied. Simply by clicking the Play button, users hear the metronome intro which is followed by the convenient flow of notes. Users can always see what they’re playing, along with a couple of more measures that are coming up next.

On the same screen, users not only change the tempo, the key or turn the metronome on/off but also play the original sound of the instrument (to hear whether they’re playing it correctly).
This improvement is supposed to make the App more convenient to use, and really, get it on the next level. Now it’s becoming much easier and more comfortable to learn and perform scores from the huge MuseScore catalog.

At the moment, we’re looking for the App and the new mode beta-testers.

To join the beta-testers community, follow the link and click "Become a tester".


After we’ve released the next build supporting the new mode, you just need to install it, open any score and you’ll be immediately redirected to the needed mode. We really hope that this update will visibly improve your experience and help with the development of your musical skills.

We are open to any suggestions and appreciate your help with the development of the new mode. You’re welcome to join us!

Regards,
Dmitriy Popov
MuseScore / Chief Product Officer


P.S. Planned date for the first beta release of the feature - the next week.

How to be heard over the rest of my band?

So im in marching band and I'm the only flute out of 16 hornline, mostly brass...

I keep trying to play louder but it always goes up an octave or makes an awful screeching noise. Even though I have been playing for about two years, I've never found a solution to the problem.  I was wondering if any of you could give me some tips on how to play louder but still sound decent during competitions.

Delete Conversation Feature

I realize that the messaging (PM) is simply a beta version right now, so now is a great time to suggest the enabling of each user to delete conversations with other users.  This would be especially useful when conversations become outdated, unwanted, or when the other person deletes their account.  When a conversation is over, one should have the ability to choose whether or not to keep it around as useless clutter, also making other conversations slightly harder to keep track of.  This would be the number one improvement for me right now as a regular user.

Il existe de nombreux types de robes longues

Mais si vous vous considérez comme "court" 
Robeyou
,  vous voudrez porter une robe de cocktail qui ressemble à une robe  longue et longue. Ici, je voudrais parler de quelques conseils sur le  choix de la longueur de la robe, en fonction de votre taille. Cette  explication vient de ma propre observation. Donc, vous pouvez simplement  l'utiliser comme référence. 

 Une longue robe a déjà une bonne réputation lors de soirées  officielles. C'est élégant et féminin et une robe d'apparence plus  formelle qui ne semble pas bon marché ou décontractée. La robe longue  est une valeur sûre pour le bal des finissants. Cependant, en raison de  sa longueur, le corps plus court ne semble pas charmant et lent. Si vous  n'êtes pas assez grand, la robe dominera sur vous. Je recommande la  robe longue pour les candidats moyens à grands.
Il existe de  nombreux types de robes longues, telles que: Par exemple, les robes  empire à taille haute, le fourreau ou la longue robe de bal. Les robes  longues suivantes peuvent souvent être trouvées au bal de fin d’année:  Les robes à col en v sont le choix parfait si la couleur de votre peau  est blanche et que votre corps est mince. Cette robe vous fera paraître  plus nette et plus charmante. Les robes à une épaule sont lorsque vous  voulez avoir l'air excitant à la fête. Il est asymétrique et semble  sauvage mais unique.
 

 

HIGH SCHOOL UPDATE

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Your love and support really worked! I made my symphonic band as a freshie! I got 6th chair out of 8 symphonic flutes and   7 concert flutes. So how did auditions go? I did all of my scales and arpeggios in 2 octaves (minus Bb, which is the end of me so I only did it in one octave), ALMOST flopped on my chromatic but MADE IT, played my prepared exercise LIKE A SAVAGE, and then the wheels had to come off at sight reading that I'm pretty sure was grade 4 1/2. ANYWAYS, I love ALL of YOU who motivated me! THANKS!


                                                                                       Love, Ella

Invite suggestions + Advertising

Suggest people to send a direct invite to! Advertising the group is great and everything, but we need to send invites to specific people if we want lots of people. Suggest them here, and I'll invite them if I haven't already, or if they're not already in the group.

Edit: If anyone would like to advertise the group for me, that would be appreciated. Also, suggestions of what groups are good to advertise in would be nice.
