MDL + More

In addition to MDL, I think many could agree that MuseScore also needs MFE (MuseScore Front Ensemble), to work in conjuction with MFE as a soundfont. I understand it is hard to get nice sounds on an open-source software, but it would be nice to have. Here are suggestions for the soundfont in mind:

UPDATED SOUNDS
- Marimba (with 3 hardnesses); the marimba sounds a little bit like a toy xylophone with a deeper voice. It doesn't sound very rich.
- Vibraphone (with 3 hardnesses); the vibes don't exactly sound metallic enough
- Xylophone (with 2/3 hardnesses)
- Glockenspiel (with 2 hardnesses)
- Chimes/Tubular bells (with 2 hardnesses); the chime sound isn't round enough and is a bit abrasive in timbre

NEW SOUNDS
- Crotales
- Gong (PLEASE)
- Suspended/China cymbals with pre-recorded rolls and hits on different sizes (similar to what VDL does)

And as well, a nice function that could be EXTREMELY useful is the ability to upload samples into a score by mp3 or wav.

Musecorps Composition Competition #1 - Colors!

Hello, everyone!

I've been sitting on this group for over a year without really doing anything with it. Its original purpose was to bring together the drum corps community on MuseScore by allowing others to post their own drum corps arrangements. In my original post on this group, I mentioned that I wanted to start a series of competitions that you guys can participate in, and I'm happy to say that I'm going to give a go, starting today!

So, what is the first competition?

I want to start off with something simple: Create a drum corps arrangement for any song that has a color in its name.

Here are the rules:
- Follow typical drum corps format (3 trumpet, 2 mellophone, 3 baritone, 1-2 tuba)
- You don't need to include percussion, but it might increase your chances of winning
- Only submit one arrangement per person!
- Arrangement must be at least 1:30 long, but no more than 5:00

When you're ready to enter, just reply to this post with a link to your arrangement. 

So, if you win... what do you actually win? In the future, I hope to offer a month of Musescore Pro to winners. Maybe if enough people show interest? For this first competition, though, I will post the winner's arrangement to my YouTube channel, with a link(s) to whatever you want to advertise. Your YouTube, your Instagram, whatever!

Assuming people actually participate, I plan to end this competition by Monday, 10/21. Have fun!

Offering scores

I arrange simple but effective numbers for small drum and bugle corps. I haven't been able to figure out how to upload my scores to "give back" for some of the scores I've downloaded to build on. I'd appreciate any advice

I need Suggestions

I would like to take some stories and turn them in to music. A great example of this is Peter and the Wolf composed by Prokofiev.

If you have any short stories you have written or read comment them and i might make it into a piece of music.
When i grow up i would like to write music scores for movies. I have watched a few videos on how John Williams has scored some movies using different themes and motifs and instruments for each character. Please leave your suggestions
