Fake News & the Mueller Report

So we just got the Mueller report in and it turns out President Trump did not collude with Russia during the 2016 election contrary to the 2 full years of media coverage to the contrary. So what do you all think about the prevalence of fake news and bias in our country, and are the news anchors who were apart of spreading the lies going to be held accountable?

By the way, I am NOT a full fledged Trump supporter. I don't like the language he uses a lot of the time (although I don't disagree with many of his policies). Also I'm independent and am trying to look into both sides. However I think it is kind of ironic that the media shouted "collusion" and Trump said "NO!" and the media said "HE SAID NO THAT MEANS HE'S LYING IF HE HAD SOMETHING TO HIDE HE WOULD SAY NO" and then turns out he wasn't lying. 

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.

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

Does anyone else get annoyed when the key of the game music doesn’t match the key of the sound effects?

Well I know that I do.

What I mean is that when I’m playing a game, I get annoyed when the key of the music doesn’t match the key of the sound effects (for example, if the music is in C major, but the game plays an F sharp minor chord when something happens, I get annoyed).

Do any of you get annoyed by this?

Would you rather

This discussion has already been posted several times......but hey, it's fun :P Let's play :D

1. Would you rather leave musescore and never share your music online again OR be very popular on several music sharing sites but constantly have your music plagiarized?

2. Would you rather have your favourite musescorer block you OR have me kick you from RSA and block you? (you wouldn't be able to join this group again)

3. Would you rather gain a reputation on musescore as someone who always posts insulting hate comments on people's scores OR gain a reputation on musescore as someone like Dookis?

4. Would you rather lose all your devoted followers on musescore (and none of them ever follow you again or look at any of your music - but you can gain new devoted followers) OR delete all your scores (you can't screenshot your comments or anything, and you can't repost the scores that were deleted - but you can post new scores).

5. Would you rather plagiarize someone else's original composition and explicitly claim it as yours (you get attention and praise, so you have to feel all the guilt, but you can't delete it) OR have someone who has a very large fanbase (as in about 100 000+ subscribers) plagiarize your original composition and get tons of praise from it?

Edit: Would you rather double the average amount of comments you get on each of your scores, but also get 10 insulting, paragraph-long hate comments per score from 10 different moderately-well-known musescorers (and you can't delete them) OR halve the average amount of comments you get on each score?
