Cuphead fan based medley

 Hello everyone! @realrandynewman and I are doing this very fun cuphead  pastiche medley. So how this works is everyone makes one piece based on  the big band jazz from cuphead. This can either be a plane battle piece a  run and gun or a regular boss battle. We need at least 7 people to  complete the medley. Each piece must have a rhyming name like "Wolly  warbles in aviary action" or "eartha earthquake in jungle rumble". When  your done Randy will fix the pieces up and put it in the medley. Put a  comment saying what the name of your piece will be and get our piece up  in the next 3 weeks and you can be in the medley!

Have a good day! 

Keyboard feature on the iPad app

Hi, the web version of muscore allows me to enable the keyboard at the bottom of the page, which displays which notes on the keyboard should be hit. On the iPad, this feature is not present - or at least I don't know how to enable it.

Can you please let me know if there is a way to enable this feature in the iPad app, or if it will get added in a future release?

Thanks.

Anybody home? (Awaiting permission to join groups)

I recently asked to join two groups. It's been days and I've received nothing from either group. I don't suspect the owners are enlisting the FBI to do a background check so I assume the owners are absent, away at school, generally derelict or, perhaps, have bought a farm. I wonder how many others are awaiting confirmation.
I realize this is not the fault of MuseScore management...perhaps someone has a solution?

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!

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.


(Video captured from https://musescore.com/classicman/scores/33715 )

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!

How to move notes from one staff to another?

THe question may not be clear, but for instance let's say, at the piano, I have one (or several) note(s) in a series of notes which would be way too cumbersome to read if they were left in the treble clef. I want these notes, and these notes only, to be in the bass clef.

An example is in Beethoven's Moonlight Sonoata first movement, measure 5: the first two notes (E and G) are really hard to read if they are in the treble clef, I want to migrate them to the bass one. How is it done?

Note: Musescore 2.3.2

Mobile version of score player does not show play time

I think the redesign of the play bar is fine. I don't care much about placing it at the top or bottom etc., But I've found that when I play a song on my phone, I cannot see the current play time anywhere. This is very annoying as I often make comments or communicate with collaborators using time markers (e.g. section 3:00-4:12). It is very inconvenient if the time information cannot be seen.

Invitations and join requests to groups not working well

Some weeks ago, I noticed that invitations to a private group only worked if I used a MuseScore username. Invitations using an external email address never worked.

And today I got this response when trying to view the "Join requests" page for a private group which I had changed to a moderated group ( 
https://musescore.com/groups/join/request/view-all/?uri=4980191):
 
This page isn’t working
musescore.com is currently unable to handle this request.
HTTP ERROR 502 

And a user who tried to join the same moderated group got the response:
 ‘This group is unavailable’  

I logged out and tried to join the moderated group anonymously, and got the same 'This group is unavailable' response.
