Delete Conversation Feature

I realize that the messaging (PM) is simply a beta version right now, so now is a great time to suggest the enabling of each user to delete conversations with other users.  This would be especially useful when conversations become outdated, unwanted, or when the other person deletes their account.  When a conversation is over, one should have the ability to choose whether or not to keep it around as useless clutter, also making other conversations slightly harder to keep track of.  This would be the number one improvement for me right now as a regular user.

Hello?

Hey guys, so I got an invite to join this group, so that's cool. I'm Lizante, if you didn't know that already, a random Nintendo otaku who also loves anime. I play viola and will not tolerate any viola jokes unless they're genuinely funny. That's all you need to know, hope we can be friends! ^^

MuseScore introduces mobile practice mode

MuseScore introduces mobile practice mode 

Every day hundreds of thousands of people use MuseScore services for practicing music, learning scores or preparing for performances. The Catalog created by the MuseScore community is the biggest score library.

We’ve been recently putting a lot of effort into improving the product for performers, not only on the website but in the mobile app.

At the moment, our App processes scores the same way our desktop solution does. But mobile devices have their peculiarities (mainly because of the screen size and touch-interfaces). It’s not always convenient to read scores using our current mobile app, especially if users don’t want or don’t know how to manage more advanced app settings. Users have to turn pages all the time (even more often than when they use regular paper scores) if they’re using the Play mode. So, they can’t see the next measure when done playing the current one. Also, it’s not clear where to manage such settings as the metronome, tempo or transposing.

Taking all this into account, we’ve launched another update which is aimed at the global improvement of mobile apps for professional performers and students.

Please, welcome Practice Mode. Now you’re one click away from entering a special mode, aimed at simplifying the process of playing an instrument and learning new scores.

In this mode, users see scores in a "continuous view" shown in one line with perfect readable scaling applied. Simply by clicking the Play button, users hear the metronome intro which is followed by the convenient flow of notes. Users can always see what they’re playing, along with a couple of more measures that are coming up next.

On the same screen, users not only change the tempo, the key or turn the metronome on/off but also play the original sound of the instrument (to hear whether they’re playing it correctly).
This improvement is supposed to make the App more convenient to use, and really, get it on the next level. Now it’s becoming much easier and more comfortable to learn and perform scores from the huge MuseScore catalog.

At the moment, we’re looking for the App and the new mode beta-testers.

To join the beta-testers community, follow the link and click "Become a tester".


After we’ve released the next build supporting the new mode, you just need to install it, open any score and you’ll be immediately redirected to the needed mode. We really hope that this update will visibly improve your experience and help with the development of your musical skills.

We are open to any suggestions and appreciate your help with the development of the new mode. You’re welcome to join us!

Regards,
Dmitriy Popov
MuseScore / Chief Product Officer


P.S. Planned date for the first beta release of the feature - the next week.

Claim Request

Hello!

If you don't mind, I would like to request ownership of the group Piano Company, if no one else has yet to.  
https://musescore.com/groups/piano-company

While there are active users in this group still, the owner themself (and a majority of, if not all of, the other admins) do not appear to have been active recently. I would love to revamp the group and start trying to build it up and maintain it again!

Thank you so much for your consideration! :)

News about LordTroll

The top story in trolling for the last couple weeks is LordTroll. He started as a normal account, but he started making racist scores. He also included abuse in his scores, and his name was racist itself. He also made multiple accounts, probably in the hopes of not being banned. 

I saw one of his scores, and told him about his bad behavior. He then attacked me with a song, where you can find more info about in RSA*. He was then reported by mnmwert**, me, and a few others. mnmwert and Jaybird spammed his account, and kept reporting him until he was banned. He was then banned within a few hours, via the staff getting information in Improving Musescore. 

*The discussion is called: Nasty Targeting.

**I know is spelt that wrong.

Looking for game OST pieces to transcribe, preferrably piano; any suggestions?

For now, I have transcribed and published three pieces, one of which is pure piano (At Zanarkand), one other which has no piano at all but was ripe for such a transcription (Calm Before The Storm) and another for which the piano is the dominating element for the melody (Cold Rest).

I am currently in the process of transcribing Path of Repentance (or is that Via Purifico?) from FFX. The original, not the remaster version which I personally dislike.

Do you have any suggestions for other such pieces? Note that I am not limited to Final Fantasy, so any suggestions are welcome :p

ZachTMusic

Hi,
The second most commented user is goes by the name 'ZachTMusic'
I think he used to be 'thebasscleffguy' but I'm not sure.
Anyway, I've been trying to find his comments because I've been trying to pass him for over 6 months and know he has been inactive, but I can't find a single comment of his in the groups he is a part of. Could someone direct me to a discussion he is in? or could you help me figure out why I can't see any comments he has posted? For all of the other top users even below him they've had enough comments for me to easily see it. When I search up the name ZachTMusic I only see the discussion asking who he is. could you all help me out?

So How do I Claim [BLANK]??? ANSWERED

I'm among the first, if not THE first person to successfully claim a dead group, and here's the basics on claiming that group that you want. 

DON'T add another discussion here. It's not going hurt your chances, but it won't be much help either. Instead, contact either the MuseScore admins or support. I don't remember which way worked, so I would try both if I were you.

Welcome

Welcome everyone. Thanks in advance for joining this group.

What I want to do is to interview some of the top users on Musescore and find out more about them General facts on why they think they have so many followers and what they think makes people want to follow them. Second, I want to interview people that don't hardly get recognition.

And third, I want to report the basic news on Musescore. This would include scammers, weird emails, people leaving, etc... if you have any information like that you can preferably let me know via Musescore messaging system. so if you know anything interesting please let me know, even if it is just a fun fact about a person. please don't be shy about it.

I plan to do I biography a least once every two weeks. You can ask me to do one on you but, that doesn't mean I will choose you.

My dream is to have this group big enough that anyone can come on and find out anything that's going on. So if you would hit that join button and become a member, now.
