I am currently working on a project that sounds more like a soundtrack than a classical piece, and I have no experience with percussion instruments. Does anyone know of a good resource to familiarize myself with the different percussion instruments and their uses in an orchestra, especially as it related to soundtrack music? I know what I want the percussion in the score to sound like but I do not know the best instruments to use to make those sounds.
Any help is appreciated!
would love to preset automatic sticking, for CMD/T shortcut
exercise of music
I really love mdl but i really want the new sounds to be added and I dont think we have gotten an update since about a week after it came out
Looking for a percussion writer who would want to contribute to a collaboration piece. Not looking for anything super serious just someone to write some cool battery and front parts for one of the pieces I've written.
In the space of 2 quarter notes am attempting to write a 7 note tuplet for a snare part that matches up with a quarter note triplet on a bass part. It's a little off. The Ctrl 3 and Ctrl 7 functions work but the results don't match. I can play it but the music doesn't match up. Any help is appreciated.
Hey everyone, I thought I would share a library of copy/paste grooves you can use in your own scores.
You can check out the sets here - https://musescore.com/readyset/sets
I'm just getting started, but plan to cover as much as possible. Right now I currently have:
20 Swing Grooves
25 3/4 Grooves
25 6/8 Grooves
5 Oldies Grooves
50 Contemporary Grooves
50 Rock Grooves
Any requests for a specific style or genre?
So, I can't write music and the mellophone section wants a fanfare. Can someone write on for me? BTW there's two of us.
Just a reminder that if you're planning on submitting something for the competition, the deadline is tomorrow. A lot of you have commented, but nobody has submitted yet. Is anyone planning on submitting something? And if so, should I push the deadline back by a few days?
Thanks for any feedback!
Hello everyone! The 2018 Drum Corps season is over, and I figured it was time for me to start this group up again. Therefore, I've decided to hold the first competition that I talked about in this groups' other post!
This first competition is basically a test. It's just for fun, you could say. If enough people participate, I'll hold another one in the future, and possibly include some level of prizes. Just depends on how many people participate!
I thought we'd start off easy. Create a drum corps style arrangement from any piece (s) written by Ludwig van Beethoven. The arrangement should be longer than one minute in length, but no more than three. You can include percussion if you want, but just brass would be alright too! When you have something completed, post it to MuseScore and post a link to it in a comment on this post. I'll live submissions open until a week from today, Tuesday 9/18 at around 2:00 PM EST.
If you have any comments or questions, leave them below!
