Topic of the day: scary meters! In honor of Halloween, I am going to enter an excerpt from some music I wrote many years ago to accompany a poem entitled "Goblin Market" by Christina Rossetti. The basic groove is alternating measures of 4 and 3.5, except for one instrument that is in straight 15. Is MuseScore up to the challenge? Am I? Tune in to find out!

MuseScore Director of Education Marc Sabatella presents a regular series of free live interactive chat sessions on a variety of topics, via streaming video. Grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and join in the conversation!

Help with Tempo Changes?

On my piece in progress, I think the first phrase (until measure 5) sounds better around 120 bpm and the second part (everything after measure 5 so far) sounds better at 130 bpm. What is the best way about easing into the tempo change, or does one tempo fit all here and I'm biased because I wrote it in those two tempos? Thanks in advance!

Original Video Game Soundtrack 'Final Battle'--Thoughts and Feedback?

 
The first two ('Final Battle' & 'Final Battle (Dark)') are versions of the same score I wrote for my friend's video game. The third link is the main theme for the game ('The Forest').

MuseScore Android 2.0.4 : Still a complete mess with Tablature

• The font is still low quality (like a low resolution scan)
• Stave texts overlap with the stave and with each other
• Stems and beams are a mess, often missing hooks and dots
• Coloured fret numbers are rendered as black

Examples
https://musescore.com/user/28842914/scores/5154865
https://musescore.com/user/28842914/scores/5207123
https://musescore.com/user/28842914/scores/5209658

These scores display perfectly on the web, in the desktop version and in Android Songbook but are a mess in Android MuseScore. On a positive note, the user interface looks good and the mini score previews look correct, (including stems, beams, dots and colour!)

Airy/thin bari tone on a new bari sax

So today, I just got my brand new bari :,). It was totally amazing but I found that the tone quality on the upper octave G to B sounded like they totally had an air leak. The sound just dipped in sound, and an audible leaky sound was coming though. I know there isn't really an issue with the rest of the bari but the notes sound so weak and undesirable. Any ways to fix this?

P.S: The octave mechanics seems to be fine, since the first octave closes shut when the other is activated and vice versa.

EDIT: When the air rushes out of the octave openings, it hits against the pads, making an airy, thin sound. I think this effect is similar to what happens when you whistle, but bring a finger close to the opening of your lips, making a weakened, airy sound. What do I do?

Rendering issues with the new MuseScore app

In the new MuseseScore app, version 2.0.1, there are quite some rendering issues:

The lyrics dash as well as the melisma underscore are rendered too high.
Spaces in lyrics (Produced with Ctrl+Space, e.g. after a stanza number) are rendered as "?".
Lyrics moved to above the stave are rendered below.
The curly brace of a piano staff is too far left.
The measure repeat sign in a single line staff is not on the line, but below.

Also all the dialogs are in English, even though I know that translations are available.
From https://musescore.com/groups/musescore-ios/discuss/5024010 I see that localization is planned for the iOS version 2.0.4, is that true for the Android version too?

I'm stuck with the inclusion on Youtube

Goodmorning everyone,

today I tried several times to transfer a song on youtube but without success. I have disabled any type of block possible but nothing. I click on "send ...." but the screen becomes white and nothing is transmitted. I  observed that, loading an mp3 audio, after clicking on disconnect and  then on connenct, I was shown C: fakepath .... (something like that). What could be the problem?  

The connection with youtube does not work in any way. Followed to fix a blank page on the screen and in no way are redirected. Nor do you upload any movie. It stops with the https: /musescore.com/score/manage/youtube/send-process? Score_id = ... link in the address bar. As I said, I have not activated any protection. However, it does not proceed with Firefox, neither with Explorer nor with Chrome. Every activity on the internet works correctly, including the youtube account. There has not even been any change to my pc.
How do I handle it?

Thanks a lot See you soon. 

Oplita

P.S.  I hope that the English translation is understandable. 

Collaboration feature

Something I really wish MS admins added is a collaboration feature, a preeintegrated feature in MS, where you have a list of your followers in MS, and then you could choose who you want to collab with, providing that person is currently on MuseScore. It'd then be like Flat.io, where two or three people compose at the same time on the same score on the same window. I REALLY wish they added this. It'd be a dozen times easier for collabs and I even think there would be more collaborative pieces on MS (so more diversity of styles) simply by having this function added. I know it wouldn't be that easy to program on the staff's side but it would be definitely worth it in my opinion. What do you think?
