musical chairs competition

here is an idea for a new competition
someone will start a composition with maybe 5-10 bars and then another person will continue it for another 5-10 measures, and then the next person and so on until the game will unexpectedly end (the music stops, in other words) and the last one to enter when the music stops (as determined randomly by the one running the competition) wins.
any takers or anyone want to start a piece?

Marching Band + WGI template feedback & arranging process question

I've made a couple templates for marching band over at https://musescore.org/en/node/111531. I was looking for your ideas on them. Specifically:
1. How did your maching band handle percussion parts? Were they written with the wind parts, or were the parts that came with the arrangement usually re-written to suit your specific ensemble?
2. For the "WGI" scores (which could also double as the percussion parts for a marching band that writes them separately), do you agree with my selection of instrumentation? It's clearly nuts to try to believe that there's any "standard" pit, but do I have good starting points for both?

What is your pit writing process?

Over in the discussion for one of my suggested new score templates (at https://musescore.org/en/node/111531), the question of what the usual writing process for pit parts is came up. If you have some perspective, I'd like to read it.
Also, I have two templates WGI that could also be the templates for pit parts if you're in a marching band that usually writes their pit parts separately.

musescore 2.01 comments

I realize there is likely a discussion of this elsewhere but decided to have my own discussion to keep track of issues. you are welcome to add your own comments of course.

notice that some compositions created in the older version don't open in the newer one, says they are corrupted. I realize my music is very corrupt but musescore could have been a little nicer about it all. that is just plain mean.

notice that the violin sounds a lot better, more pleasant ( I won't say it sounds more like a real violin being played because then it would sound worse, if I was playing anyway)

but also notice that the overall sound seems very quiet. I have to turn the computer volume up really high. and then if I forget and play something with the older version, I am deafened. yowza!

wonder how music made with this new version plays at the online musescore site, or does the sound balance get messed up as it does now…

haven't found how to do some things… seems they changed the layout a bit.

I need help....

I know this looks a lot like a Pokémon Ranger quest, but I assure those of you who know what I'm talking about, it's not. I just need help on making a score for something (you'll never know until it's done). How the heck does one get the metal wind chimes to work in Musescore (P.S. I love how on their own website, it shows up as an incorrect word). It sounds a lot easier than it is, so please help me. I don't know if nobody truly knows how to do it, or if I am just completely clueless.

Musescore 2.0 Synthesizer Settings

Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone had messed around the Master Effects settings, and the Zita1 effect, to see if they could get their instruments to sound a little more realistic? I mean the MIDI's aren't bad, but it'd be nice to get as close to a realistic sound as possible! Or has anyone just messed with the default settings and found that they like a certain setup?
