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.

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

Donation donate patreon liberapay

Hi on the page https://musescore.org/en/donate
- It is not cristal clear if donation goes only to the web site or also to the software development.
- It is also not clear if a "Pro" account on MuseScore.org helps the software dev ???
- On the Patreon page it is obvious that it goes to both
- It would be nice to add https://LiberaPay.com/
- It would be nice and encouraging to be able to donate for specific bugs or RFE. (not sure how to implement it. But when you hit a specific issue, that is when you are ready to pay!!)

Please help

 Dear Muserscore,
I am very upset with my following message but I must at least try and ask. I have registered for your free trial, as I was curious to see whether your website would be useful for me. However, I travelled abroad for a long-time period and as I returned back last night, I checked my bank account. I completely forgot about the expiration date of my free trial, which I am fully aware was completely my mistake, because your website even reminded me of it via email. However, I cannot afford to pay a full 12-month plan. Would it be possible for me to only pay for the month which I started just now and somehow get at least some of the money back? 
I am fully aware that according to your terms of service, I shall not receive any refund, however, I am not in a situation where I can afford such a payment. The amount I paid has a great value in the Czech Republic. Please, if there is any slightest possibility for me, can you please help me? 
To keep the record, I started my free trial on 15th July 2019 and my receipt came on 14th August. 
Thank you in advance for any answer
Best Regards
Daniela Monsportova

Finding Time to Do Everything

 Hey, I am currently super busy!! Before I start, I'll lay out what my week tends to be:
Monday: Double/triple up on schoolwork. Once a month is nursing home music night (which I can't miss, considering I'm the pianist)
Tuesday: Currently I'm going to my aunt's. Soon will be Piano & Choir (if I go, which I am leaning more towards not going)
Wednesday: Work in the morning, Omnibus in the afternoon, Skating at 3pm, and will be home only for supper
Thursday: I go to my aunt's all day.
Friday: School (double/triple up as needed), Youth in evening.
Saturday: House cleaning
Sunday: Depending on which Sunday is: play piano for both services, nursing home services (I can't miss, I'm the pianist), go to my grandparents for lunch, have company over.

My problem I'm almost too busy for myself to do school.
How do you guys live with being super busy and having heavy schoolwork to do!?!?!?!?
I need advice!!!!!!!!!!

Please message me or comment what tends to work for you.
P.S. with the nursing home service/music night, that are highlights of my month!!!!!! and I can't quit now, consider i leave without them having any accompainment, 'cept a clarinet.
