I will update this weekly
Group is created today! Woohoo! *confetti and stuff falls from sky*
Eek! I forgot to do this yesterday. The group is already dying, so uhh… :o
@Jaybird1 is one of the first truly active members, I told him I would give him a shoutout here, so here you go :P
I haven't updated this in a while, this group is blowing up now...
Holy cow, this group is blowing up. 8 members in 4 days, wow...
Hmm...Starting to die again...
Welp...I was wrong...
I was very wrong, this group is really blowing up, welp
So I had to kick a member (Indy500) for spamming a link to an unsecure website. Sorry, but spam for no purpose is not tolerated.
Okay then, I don't know what to say
Okay then, I started a discussion trying to get to 1k comments, and I thought it would fail. As I am writing this, Lizzapie, Mnmwert, Vash Hartman, and myself are spamming to get it to 1k. It's already at like 150 or something (every 2 minutes I refresh and I have 10+ notifications lol)
So this group is now closing in on 100 members, but we need more discussions!
Wow, 5 more members till 100!
Woohoo! 100 Members!
This group is starting to die
Now the member count has capped out at around 1 member per day, BUT this is a random group, and I didn't really expect it to be this active.
I'm just going to leave this group alone for a while, only update this discussion every once in a while.
When are we going to be able to have marimbas, vibes, etc. be able to have the percussion clef and add instruments to them? This is common practice in front ensemble, so I think it should be a thing. Also, smooth cymbal rolls, not the sound of crash cymbals over and over again in a tremolo.
I'm loving MDL so far; it's everything I've wanted out of Musescore percussion, and more. However, there were a few minor things that I've noticed missing that might make for nice additions.
First off, bass drum shots would be nice. Most lines use rim shots (in addition to clicks) on at least first and second bass, so notation for shots vs. rim clicks on basses might come in handy.
Secondly, a hand mute for Drums 3 and 4 on the tenors would make a nice addition, since skanks (shot on 3rd or 4th followed immediately by mute) are fairly common.
And finally, let me say that I know that Muse is a notation software and not a playback software, so this one might be asking too much: it might be nice to have zone changes (specifically on snare) in playback in the future, just to enhance the difference between guts/halfway/center/etc.
Thanks for reading!
Here's the link:
I'm starting to make videos like this one where I teach you how to play one of my original tenor licks, and MuseScore Drumline has helped me so much in making these kinds of videos! Honestly, I don't know of another program that does what it can do, and I probably wouldn't be able to do this without it.
I hope you guys enjoy the video, I had a lot of fun making it! All the sheet music is on profile on here, and the second video is on the way.
Hey When are we gonna get a good front ensemble update
I just installed MDL 1.2.1, but what are the changes in this version from the previous version?
I had a perfectly good MuseScore 3 working program, after upgrading to the latest version 3.0.5. There was a link to download MuseScore Drumline, which I clicked and installed the extension. Now I can't get MuseScore to load at all!
I've re-downloaded it but Windows 10 refuses to open it. All I get is increased CPU and Memory usage and eventually I have to close the unopened app.
I'm trying to write 20:3 in 4/4 but I'm not sure how to do that. Anyone know hot?
Congrats on earning your Eagle Scout! It is a high honor! Introduce yourself here. Things like: what was your Eagle Project? What were some of your favorite merit badges? Did you receive your Order of the Arrow award? Have a great time.
I have created a Bodhrán instrument in MuseScore, and attached a score with a Bodhrán part added to a Tin Whistle tune.
There is debate in the Bodhrán community, as to whether the playing should be written down or not. No Bodhrán player I know plays a tune the same way twice, and it is very much playing with the feel of the music.
Having said that, when I first started Bodhrán drumming I found it useful to have a guide as to what to do, so adding Bodhrán to MuseScore may help beginners. Also it would be useful to have the drumming added to a Tin Whistle score, for example, which gives a feel for what the two instruments will sound together.
However if you are dead set against Bodhrán notation, then I understand :-)
I get stuck mostly when writing front ensemble and it usually happens with keyboard instruments whether that's finding a rhythm or a groove or trying to blend with battery or building for an impact. Any tips?
Can someone either teach me how to write aux or help me write something? I desparately need it for an indoor show (gravity) and it's gotten way better.
I'm attempting to write a timpani solo that uses the MDL rails and pictograms, but I can't find them anywhere

Here is our #MuseScoreMonday score for this week!
So downloaded musescore 3 and had to reinstall MDL again and I noticed some of the palettes are missing from the MDL section compared to the musescore 2.3.2 one. I haven't noticed if anything else is missing but just thought I'd let anyone know.
