New SATB A Cappella Composition - The Gift to Sing

Hello! I thought I would share this with you guys really quickly. I set the poem "The Gift to Sing" for SATB choir, and figured you might like to hear it, since the meaning of the poem and the composition is one that many of us live by - there is nothing better or stronger than the gift to sing. :)

I would also love any critiques you would be willing to offer, because there are still a few chords and things here and there that I am unsure about. I know that this piece requires a big range for each vocal part, but I think it should be manageable (at least from a soprano's perspective) - so if you have any thoughts on that or anything else as well, I would love them!

This is a really special piece to me, as it is for my old choir director, who is the one who inspired me to pursue music as a career. I would appreciate any and all comments and critiques you have, because I want this to be as good as possible when I give it to her!

Thank you so much! Happy composing and arranging, everyone! :D

How does my Gravity Falls theme sound?

So, because Gravity Falls is so awesome and its music is pretty dang epic, I decided to do a theme. I was wondering how you guys think it sounded compared to the real thing. I think it is decent, with a few things that COULD be edited. I do not know how to share links or anything on a tiny phone, but please check it out on my profile and tell me what you think.

Synth Bass 2 new sound

The old sound of Synth Bass 2 was used to "emulate" the sound of voices, like when we transcribe a cappella scores and stuffs like that. This new sound doesn't does justice to the voices, and it doesn't sustai the notes, and can bearly do high notes.
The other thing is that I downloaded a "Soundfont" that has the old Synth Bass 2 sound, but when I try to update the sound, the "exporting..." bar gets to 100%, but the "Updating..." bar gets stuck in "3%" everytime, and it doesn't update.

Help Please

I cant find help for a simple question. I find this very frustrating. When adding or deleting Repeats( Bar Line or others) in multi stave scores it adds or deletes from all the staves. Obviously each instrument in some cases require different repeats HOW DO I ADD OR DELETE ONLY ONE STAVE REPEATS WITHOUT AFFECTING THE OTHER STAVE> Thankssssss..........

Greatest composer

Bach seems to be  the  most  far  reaching , the most exacting , the most  sure  , the  man  with  the  most  sides  to  his  creativity he can laugh,cry  , be  playful and  we  all know how  serious  and  mystical religious or  deity-conscious  he can be . Bach is No.1 . No.2  spot  is  shared  ;Beethoven after Bach sits  on  the  high  mountain with  Charles Ive  ,Varese & Pierre Boulez . Elliott Carter , Scelsi ,Stockhausen (idea comes  before  sound and  pictures come  before  sound.Bible  says  logo  was  first.that means the mind's  eye  was  the  first stone  thrown  out  into  the  cosmos who  share No.2  spot . With Messiaen shares places  with Debussy ,Ravel (whose music means more to me  than Debussy but I know Debussy 's work is a  revelationand he goes  very  far  formally . Purcell and Handel too amaze me  with  directness  and  honesty  . Paganini  is  much more  than  just  a violinist-composer . He had  real  amzing  imagination -there  are  things  he  does  on  violin  which Liszt still isn't  as  difficult t  do on piano. the leaps from string to string and out  of  chordal double-stop  contortions and  hand figurations have  no  real  counterpart  on the  piano plus  the  music  is  really  better  than  all the  subpianist -composers  who started  with JohnFeild  and  continue past antonRubinstein and  so  many  thousands  of  others (mostly opera Paraphrase people ) . After Bach ,I'm beginning to  think the  great  genius  and i mean  genius  because the  breadth  of his   invention is  confunding . I just heard  Maria Pires  play  one of the most  gorgeous  sonatas  of  his that Ive  never  heard  anyone else  play  though  all 550 have  been  recorded by  several  great  harpsichordists  and  maybe  even  a  few  pianists  have played and  recorded all of them  on  the  piano ,Scarlatti does  things  with  a simple  4 octave harpsichord that  the  rest  can't  do  with  8 octaves. the  music  has every  human  emotion andevery  possible sensation  that can be  experienced . Noone was  braver  in his  time  when  it came  to  harmonic  change , rhtyhm  nd  he has clusters you  wont  find  even in Bach or Handel . teh  variety  one  finds in  Scarlatti (even  though  it's  all keyboard  music ;his  father  wrote many  great  operas  so maybe  somewhere  there  are  some  vocal and  choral  music . How   is it  he  never  wrote  a  keyboard concerto for his  spanish  princessa ? Indeed !)  Chopin and Schumann come after  Scarlatti  . After  no. 5 all teh  great  ones  live  in  a celestial city  together . Berlioz,Wagner  and  Mahler  and Bruckner  and Resphigi eat  dinner  together  nightly . 

ROUND EIGHT: Results!!

Hi all,
I was waiting for a time where I would be able to write detailed comments for the pieces in Round Eight, but I won't have time to do it for this round, so I'm just posting the scores this time. Here they are...

"Hotaru", by John Galik
Creativity: 23
Complexity: 21
Realism: 25
Effectiveness: 20
Total: 89

"Rondo for Xylophone and Piano", by Jakob Altmann
Creativity: 20
Complexity: 21
Realism: 25
Effectiveness: 22
Total: 88

Luckily for both of you, @Aidancw2000 didn't enter in this round, meaning that he will be automatically eliminated from the competition and both of you are still in :)

Sorry again for not being able to give you comments; let me assure you that both entries were very good. Also, I'll be implementing a better and more efficient judging criteria starting from the next round onwards :)

Can't update my scores

 Since my laptop had a reset, everything got deleted, all the scores and everything. So, I have some scores uploaded in the musescore sites, and I downloaded a few of those, and I changed the name of the score on the app (to have it more organized), and changed some minor things on the score, and tried to update the score, but it doesn't let me. I tried to delete everything related to those scores in my laptop, so I can download it again, but it still doesn't let me. But, some scores that I downloaded does let me change the description and update the soundfont, but the scores that I want to do that, doesn't let me. Hope someone can help me with this! 

Making a piano piece

Hi  people ^^

Before, to make it clear and not to create confusion: I know almost nothing about music, much less harmony, so forgive me. I'm just a kid wanting to do something cool. I would appreciate it if you would leave tips and suggestions.

About the idea: I'm going back to my homeland, so I decided to do some work on it (even though I have no idea what I'm doing). I started doing this project today, and I intend to take it for a week, until it is complete. I want you to accompany him with me. For now, is this ...
