Does anyone know of some way to study counterpoint in a more understandable and approachable fashion, aside from studying Bach's scores which I already do for fun.
After using the in app back button I see only the top part of the screen of "Songbook".
I have this issue on my S2 TAB in portrait mode. Once I turn my screen to landscape and back again, I have full screen again.
If I use the TAB back button, I am thrown back to "Your collections" after it flashes past the "Songbook" screen. In this case I have full screen.
If I start in landscape mode, the action of in app and TAB back button remains different, however in app now maintains full screen.

Mr. Peabody finished his movement, and I have my movement planned.

That is, if you don't mind telling.
I have allergies to dust, stainless steel when it's in contact with water, and sodium lauryl sulfate, and chlorine.
Make something with this kind of pages:
They are clearly spam description with the aim of showing those post on almost all searches people make. And when 2-3 of this posts turn out in search results they also make the website load slow, it takes like 5-6 seconds until the page is fully loaded.
Please edit them, or put a limit to the number of characters people can use in descriptions.
The mathematician Daniel Bump, who started this group over seven years ago, has made me an admin of it. I have been active in this group for over four years now, as a composer, arranger, and, increasingly importantly to me and others, a sharer of my many decades of experience with and knowledge of traditional counterpoint and contrapuntal music, both in tutorials and analyses published here (see “Tutorials” set in my profile) and score comments (often requested, and usually appreciated).
Dan has (understandably) not had time to follow and supervise this group over the last few years. I hope to monitor and maintain the discussion board, e.g., removing posts that are inappropriate (e.g., “please look at my work”, which can be achieved just by posting the work), spam, and widely-cross-posted work that bears no particular relevance to the group topic, and in so doing maximize the usefulness of the discussion board as a resource.
I have viewed this group as a place where people can post, as Dan says, works by masters of counterpoint such as Bach and Palestrina (although if the scores have errors and the person posting is not responsive to notice of them….), and your own contrapuntal compositions, as he said, even unfinished works, if you want comments by other musicians. If your works are mind-bogglingly terrific, they will speak for themselves. Otherwise, expect reactions by others of both great and little knowledge and experience. This is not an arena to collect applause, but, hopefully, a place to share and learn.
Counterpoint is not a “style” or “genre” like Reggae, Celtic Ballads, or Bebop Jazz (but even those have their parameters, means, and corpora), or even “Baroque”, but a discipline about which great books and papers and courses have been and continue to be written (and I hope to maintain useful bibliographies and linkaries) and in which, although models and parameters vary over the last 500 years, (at any era) there are very definite “rules” and “right and wrong”, just as with the grammar of a language, the rules of artistic perspective, or classical rhetoric. Any work with more than one voice (and even some in one voice!) exhibits counterpoint, whether you intended it or not, which can thus be good or bad in reference the stylistic models of any era. “Hey, I used some counterpoint!” (as in several early Beatles songs) is not so interesting.
Fugue is an extraordinarily complicated business, with a vast literature, and an exercise traditionally undertaken only by those who have achieved significant skill in counterpoint. I will not say more about it right now.
There are (and hopefully will be) a number of regulars here with enough knowledge of, and skill in, this area to teach a course, including some who actually do (although employed teachers, performers, and scholars rarely have the time for this). We are a resource for those who wish to learn and have their efforts analyzed and commented on. For those not eager for honest commentary, just write, “No comments, please!” on your scores. This is not a venue for unconditional, assured applause (either for compositions, presentations of scores of repertoire, or arrangements) or emotional support. This is a score-posting group, not a social media chat room. Posts to the discussion board, including questions, should be considered by you with the question, “Will this be useful to others wishing to know more about counterpoint?” Inappropriate posts will be removed.
I hope that this group and forum will continue to be, and more and more become, a showcase of quality contrapuntal compositions by masters old and new, and resources and texts old and new, as well as a place where those eager to learn more about counterpoint will feel both welcome and able to do so.

Scores crash page within 10 seconds but only on mobile, works fine on desktop. Similar scores work perfectly.
These are the most recent of a series of pep band music, the 8th and 9th respectively. Every single one has worked until these two, which reload the page automatically within 10 seconds. It tries to load it again before giving up. The playback works correctly until the page reloads. This only happens on mobile, but on my desktop there are no problems. Is there any reason why this may be happening? There’s nothing setting these apart from the other arrangements and I’ve tried polishing up the files and reuploading. Any help would be appreciated.

When creating a YouTube Video from score, the text: " [Piano Tutorial + Sheet music]" is added to the end of the description forcing an extra editing step to remove the superfluous text.
Of more concern is that the text is also embedded in the Video main title and cannot be edited
In response to a bug report of mine yesterday about what seems to have been a temporary problem, DanielR (his name doesn't at-sign complete) informed me that Chrome and/or YouTube (both Google products) have implemented a policy change that refuses to embed YouTube videos, which is the present MuseScore technology for coupling score playbacks to sounds produced by other means (e.g., advanced DAW's, Virtual Pipe Organs). If that's, as Cronkite used to say "the way it is" forever, this is a massive setback. Not so much for contributors to this site like myself, but for visitors directed to it who will have no idea what's going on when a carefully-produced score refuses to play. I have verified that a YT score which works in FF just hangs in Chrome.
If the report is accurate, two courses of action present themselves. First, the site page scripting should detect this, and not offer the player bar, but instead, substitute a box saying "You-Tube backed score cannot be played on Google Chrome. Please use a different browser."
Secondly, the policy of prohibiting the MP3 upload connection of arbitrary, non-MS-produced sound to score playback needs reassessment in light of this development. "Scores with good sound can't be played on Chrome" is a horrific state of affairs. Is that true for Google Android as well?
This seems to be Google saying "You can't use YT content this way, at least as long as we have anything to say about it", and i wonder when the other shoe will drop and you won't be able to embed YT content at all, in any browser. If the report is accurate, YouTube is no longer a viable solution to pairing MuseScore with more capable performance engines.
Hi. How can I apply the effects of an Sf2 synthesizer to a single instrument? I downloaded a distorted guitar synthesizer and applied but the percussion and all other instruments also got a guitar bell.
Enabling the synthesizer, to solo instruments, coverts the percussion instruments in my score to piano:
If it is an inherent limitation of the synthesizer, please consider implementing a mixer with features similar to those in the desktop Musescore application.
Post epic memes and I will judge them
1=Not even a meme
10=The best meme I have seen
I think it was possible to do this before, but I don't see it now.
Can we have it?
I posted the same issue about a month ago and it was fixed. It seems to be back again. When I press the play button on the website, the score synchronization is off. The red highlight immediately skips to measure 2 and remains out of sync unless I stop the playback and restart or reposition the cursor.
Let's start a word game! One word after another. First word: You
any time I set a score to loop it will go back to the beginning and will stop before it restarts i am using chrome
For soundfonts, I usually update my scores every so often, so I like to export it as an mp3, and upload it to youtube, then put it in as a audio source for my score.
However, I've noticed that when I set the video to be hidden and only the sound to be played, the song just plain out refuses to play.
Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong group, but:
I have two instruments I would like to be added to a future version of MuseScore, if possible.
1. A mizmar/zurna--An (if Google is to be believed) Egyptian instrument that seems to be used in a fair bit of music that goes for "exotic" flair
2. Solo vocalists (as the MuseScore instruments all seem to imitate a choir)
Is there a way to retrieve an online revision if necessary?
I originally upload the composition In January 2018. Revise it May 2018. Revise it again on March 2019.
For legal purposes, and if necessary, would there be any way to retrieve the Jan 2018 and May 2018 revisions?
I don't need to at this time, but this would be an incredibly helpful feature (at least for me)
I was working on a score on the software when it closed unexpectedly.
because of that I lost my score of more than 100 (!) measures.
I tried but I couldn't find him again.
does sombody know a solution?
