Airbus still has plans to make an A380plus, despite no airline really showing any interest. Emirates wants a neo.
Which airliner would you like to see?
I want to see an A380-1000 cause the A380 looks a bit short and long planes look cool. But I think it's quite clear that it will never be produced, as the capacity is just way too massive.
747-8 > a380
A380 looks like a whale
747 looks...well...less like a whale xD
The Boom Overture will be the next supersonic airliner, assuming that they have enough money by the time serial production comes. Japan Airlines have expressed an interest in the aircraft, investing 10 million dollars in the company. Japan Airlines might actually purchase the aircraft.
UAC plans to resume production of a variant called the Il-96-400M.
Could some of you guys critique this? I've been experimenting. Link here: https://musescore.com/user/29136972/scores/5403217
I wanted to tell Jaybird1 and Legendian this mainly, but you can tell me what you think too!
It can be pop, country, rock, hip hop, rap, ect. Just comment it below I will see if anyone has the same as mine!
A new group has been created by me and Jay, and we need YOU to come participate in the contest! In this group, contests for the best score will be held. Winners of the contests will receive: likes on your score, a follow by both me and John, and an announcement of your score and username for a first place shout out!! So come join today!! Can't wait to see what you've got. Contests have already started, but the next competition will be held at the end of Feb. early March. Jay and I are so excited to see you there!
Kindest Regards, -John :D
I have spent a couple months learning MuseScore with the specific goal of using it to play my favorite classical music solos and jazz music exercises from my teenage years in the 1970's.
I was an alto sax player in my local high school concert band and jazz band. I have only played infrequently since that time and my playing skills have deteriorated.
My two main careers have been as a design drafter and IT professional. I decided to take the software learning skills I have acquired from these careers and use them to play my beloved sax music using a computer.
I started out with the MIDI Edition of Musitek's SmartScore music notation program with its built-in Aria player on-add that uses Garritan sounds. I even purchased the Garritan's Jazz and Big Bands add-on for Aria but found the added controls did not provide the effects I wanted. Perhaps with some work and/or using a Midi keyboard for input, I could get more realistic sounding sax music from the programs, but I wanted an easier (and cheaper) way. I also found SmartScore's focus was more on scanning in existing music. The amount of work need to learn to edit the scanned-in scores seemed a bit daunting.
So, I decided to try out the OpenSource MuseScore music notation program instead. I spent about a month reading the entire manual. I found it easy to learn and was relieved to find that my knowledge of reading music had not deteriorated as much as my manual dexterity has. I also discovered that transcribing the music is an enjoyable activity in itself. In fact, I find writing and modifying the scores as much fun as I do to listening to MuseScore playing them.
I have now transcribed about ten scores into MuseScore and played around with how to adapt them to get the best sounding saxophone I can. I have found that the native MuseScore alto sax soundfont is pretty good in that it has some vibrato built in. I also have experimented with a number of other other sax soundfonts recommended on the MuseScore forum. I recommend that other folks who want to get better sax sounds to try these other soundfounts out too and find one that meets their particular needs.
I wish to pass on a few methods I have learned for how to adapt music scores written using MuseScore for the purpose of using MuseScore to play them and export them out as WAV files. Of course, these hints focus on making MusceScore play in the style that I have used on my actual saxophone.
1) MuseScore does not play Breathe marks so you can leave them off of scores. You can imitate a breathe by adding short rests instead.
2) I like to play musical phrases in a swelling style where the volume gets louder as the phrase proceeds and then gets softer as the phrase ends. To get this effect, I have to exaggerate dynamic changes for the crescendos and decrescendos. I find the phrase has to start at "mp" or "mf" and increase to "ff" or even "fff" to get the effect I want.
3) For accelerandos and decelerandos, I have found changing the tempo for each meaure in the range of measures where the tempo changes to get the effect I want. Another method I have used is to literally extend the lengths of the notes. For example, using quarter notes in places of eight notes. This works well for situations where the tempo change must be dramatic.
4) I have found I need to add more accent notes and staccato notes in MuseScore than in the original scores to reproduce my playing style. The musical scores modified in the ways I have described above would not be suitable for scores that you need to print out and have someone actually play using a musical instrument. However, they do give a bit more life to how MuseScore plays them.
I hope those wishing to use MuseSore in the way I have may find the methods listed above useful. I would love to hear any hints others may have for using MuseScore to play in a more lifelike manner. Finally, I wish to express by deepest gratitude to the makers of MuseScore for creating such a tremendous software program.
I am a alto saxophone player who has around 2 1/2 years of experience and has been in private lessons and band the whole time
I never learned/misunderstood articulation and have been just blowing air. I believed that I sounded pretty good that way and could play advanced pieces.
Recently I learned this was wrong and I honestly sound terrible if I try to articulate. Should I play in band without articulation and practice articulation at home until I can articulate in band without sounded bad? Not sure what to do and if you all have videos for me to watch to help with my articulation (not that I think they will help; my private lesson teacher is very helpful and I still couldn't get tonguing down at all in 30 minutes; this could be because I have been playing a different way for 2 1/2 years)
I do wear Invisalign (not sure if that makes it harder to articulate)
I have a "tryout" for my high school band class that I am going into in June, and I would like to know if any of you have a recommendation on a jazz tune for me to play. Keep in mind that this "tryout" is only for the band director to see where I am at on the alto saxophone.
I need people to talk to. Or cuddle or something.
I love this piece and how it blends together perfectly. I did not make it, but appreciate who ever made it.
I would like to remind this group that rules like swearing and inappropriate things are not allowed on this group. If this is is problem I might have to do something about it.
What instrument do you play?
Mine is the Alto Saxophone. :)
Please list your favorite saxophone.
Lead sheets are of course disappointing to listen to in MuseScore because there is no built-in facility for generating accompaniment based on the chord symbols. Programs like Impro-Visor, iReal Pro, and others excel at this, and maybe some day MuseScore will have this ability. Meanwhile, I have created a resource you might find useful. It's a "cheat sheet" score with typical jazz piano voicings (as well as more generic voicings for folk/pop etc) for a wider variety of chords. Just add a piano part to your lead sheet (using Edit / Instruments), copy and paste from the "cheat sheet" to the piano, then mark the piano invisible (also in Edit / Instruments).
Here is the "cheat sheet":
