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.

Your choice of ordering them. :)

Goodbye&Commemoration

Soon, I will be turning 18 and I will leave this group (although you will still see me hanging around actively on the other discussion groups), I just wanted to thank everyone who has been active in the Young Composer Group. Also, the admins of course, for keeping this great place running. :)

This group has meant a lot to me, as I had a place to start and not feel any pressure in screwing up. And, to be honest my pieces back then were just as bad as you would imagine a self taught teenager would be. Well, a lot has changed, so please don't go comment in my Op. 2 or something saying how good the piece is (unless you think it's fun to tease me)... :P 

One of my first scores I posted here was my waltz Op.13, and by coincidence or rather serendipity, the score just reached over 1000 views a few weeks ago, so, I thought I'll end it where it all started. So, in commemoration of 1k views I have updated the waltz and of course feel free to write me a comment.  https://musescore.com/colorsofsound1/scores/5184280

This is it, my journey of being a self-taught teen has ended. I am stepping into the shoes of an adult composer, and that journey is just getting started. 

See you around! 

Glenn Gould and Bach

Here are two YT videos which might be interesting for friends of Gould and those who want to get to know his understanding of J. S. Bach's music:

https://youtu.be/bP-te0P_rE8?list=RDbP-te0P_rE8

This is a CBC TV production from the 60s in which Gould gives a short but precise introduction to Bach's music and his position as a composer who was

"misunderstood, but certainly not because he was years ahead of his time but generations behind it."


https://youtu.be/exD8bhJP1eo

In this video, Gould gives an (rather monological :) ) interview to the well-known director Bruno Monsaingeon, who made also films with Menuhin etc . Their conversation's topic are Bach's fugues (but not only those from the "Kunst der Fuge", as the title might pretend). Gould briefly analyses and performes e.g. BWV 878 (E major) and BWV 891 (Bb minor).

Enjoy!

MuseScore Viewing Online

Whenever I go to listen to scores online with my iPad or iPhone, the viewing is super buggy. Two examples are:

1. At a certain point in the piece, the playback will just stop, and won’t continue with the piece.
2. If I try to click on a different measure to listen to, it just goes back to the beginning and not to that measure.

Any help would be appreciated.

Pokemon Avant

Hey, you know the music that plays with every pokemon movie right at the start with the pokemon logo coming up? "Pokémon Avant". Well I can't music sheets anywhere and I was wondering if someone over here is able to take a look into it. was looking for a marching band kind of arrangement.

If you got any idea's I'll be glad to hear them. :)

Scores not playing when the play button is pressed (seems to be related to default audio)

Folks,

Many of my older scores that use VideoScores as "Default Audio" no longer play when the user presses the play button. For instance: https://musescore.com/mike_magatagan/scores/213471 .

If I go to "Manage Audio", select the VideoScore and uncheck "Default Audio", the score plays normally.

There does not appear to be anything in error with the underlying VideoScore and this feature was working last month. I'm hoping this can fixed on the web-side as I have many scores that are affected by this issue and there is no user remedy for the listener; disabling the "Default Audio" is not an option when custom audio was used.

Thanks!
