[New Feature] New privacy settings and an option to limit score downloads

Hi everybody!

Our content contributors are Musescore's most valuable asset. And one of the most important and frequent issues that our contributors encounter are confidentiality and copyright protection.

Today I want to present two important updates that we have launched.

1. New privacy settings

Previously, Musescore.com had two privacy settings for scores: Private and Public.
Public scores were available to everyone. Private ones had limited access. However, they could be published with the help of embed player or shared with direct links to them. So basically, Private scores were only partially private. This is why these scores were subject to general rules, including copyright.

This is why we decided to change the old system. We renamed Private to Unlisted, and the new (100% private) setting is now called Private. The new Private scores can not be shared in any way. This setting is suitable if the only person who is going to work with the score is yourself. This setting fully ensures the privacy of your data.

2. A new Pro-feature: Prevent anybody from downloading your scores.

We noticed that the authors who post arrangements to Musescore.com often express a wish to prevent other users from downloading their scores. The reason behind this is their concern for plagiarism.

Starting today, Musescore.com allows authors to Prevent anybody from downloading their scores. This feature is only available to Pro users and works in a test mode. We hope that this change will improve our contributors' experience, and yet will not cause MuseScore.com to stop distributing scores.

We feel like it is necessary to notice that the scores that prohibit downloads are less interesting for users. Therefore, they may receive fewer views than similar scores without this restriction. So think twice before using this option. In the future, these scores will be separated from the others in the lists and search results, so that the user could quickly identify it without actually clicking on it.

If you face any issues with the new features, please makes sure to notify us in the comments. 

Thank you for your attention!

[New Feature] Original Songs are available for download to all users

Hello, Musescore!

We continue to introduce the series of updates that we started in July. A few weeks ago, we had to make some adjustments in the scores download system and make it a paid functionality. 

As a result, we implemented several updates that improve the user experience for the Musescore community:

  • We opened an option to download Public Domain scores for free. This update was one of the essential steps we had to take in order to improve the Catalog. It helped us to identify the correct titles and composer names to most of the scores on the platform.
  • We allowed our authors to set limits for downloading of their files.
  • We introduced new privacy settings for the scores. You can learn more about it here.
  • Public Domain scores are no longer under a download limit. From now on, all users will be able to download as many scores as they want.

And we are not planning to stop there. Today we have implemented the next necessary step, which will eliminate the negative impact that some changes had on independent authors scores. Up until this day, Original Songwriters content has been available for download only for Pro users.

We understand that the situation where you have to pay to access user-generated content is not fair. However, we had to move forward gradually, one step at a time, and first use Public Domain songs to test the download mechanics. As a result, we are ready to take the next step:

Starting today, Original Songs are available for download to all users without restrictions.

From now on the download mechanics for Original Songs work just like the one for Public Domain scores. I hope this is one of the last essential checkpoints that will bring Musescore closer to its original goal - to be the largest, progressive, affordable, and community-friendly platform for publishing, sharing and distributing digital music.

How to find somebody who is able to help with project?

  
We are organizing October one day programe in the frame of Meet and Code event, which is based like European collaboration projects developing computer skills for young genereation. We are organizing during our summer music courses Ameropa www.ameropa.org  program for young musicians, where we teach them how to write music in Muse Score, how to use your program etc. My idea now is to invite for one day program somebody from your community, who is in Prague, or close to Prague and is experienced. Can you help me with some connections? I found lot of groups, but that is difficult to find someone speaking Czech, as all discussion is mostly about music, not about program and in English. 
I would be happy if you can help me to find some voluntiers / collaborators / funs ..

hey you listen to this

this originally was gonna be a multi movement work but then that didn't pan out, then it was gonna be a piano concerto (hence the name) and then I didn't want to do that, so now I have this. the score doesn't show up and idk how to fix that so I don't really care much but if anyone knows how to please tell me. 

at my school we have a music production class (basically music comp and business) taught by Stefan Schyga ( he has really cool guitar music you should look into him sometime) and this is one of my projects for it, so yeah have a good time listening to it, my weaknesses are transitions, and I don't have the new version of musescore so forgive all the period tempo and dynamic stuff please.

New Piano Roll Feature on the musescore.com

Today marks the release of MuseScore Piano Roll. Piano Roll is a popular and convenient method to display piano notation in a way that not only simplifies learning a new piece for novice musicians who lack a teacher, it also beautifully visualizes each score.


(Video captured from https://musescore.com/classicman/scores/33715 )

Give it a try by simply clicking on the Piano Roll icon now available on all solo piano scores. Be sure to tell us what you think in Improving MuseScore.com!



All of these improvements are designed to not only make MuseScore.com the most valuable resource online for sharing and discovering great musical works but for learning them as well.

We hope you’ll be as excited about this new feature as we were to create it for you, and as always we look forward to your feedback.

This is just the first of an exciting series of updates and releases for MuseScore PianoRoll; we're already hard at work on improving the experience!

How accurate is my sonata analysis?

I'm mainly concerned with the harmonic analysis in terms of accuracy. I know my formal analysis is accurate. My favorite Beethoven sonata of all time is the Pathetique Sonata. I did a harmonic analysis of Rondo a Capriccio and it was mostly accurate, so I thought I would amp up the level and do a harmonic analysis of the Pathetique Sonata. Here is a link to my analysis so far:
