Suggestion

Hey there! I want to first start off by saying I absolutely love the new MuseScore Drumline Extension! It is amazing! One thing I have noticed, and think should possibly be adjusted sometime in the future, would be a better front ensemble update. I write for indoor drumline and I would love it if the front ensemble sounded a little bit more realistic. I understand that this is mainly a marching percussion update, however I think it would be amazing if things were changed up a bit. I'm sure a lot of other users would be happy too!

Marimba deadstrokes (hard / soft mallets?)
Pedal vibes
Finger cymbals
Suspended cymbals / chokes
Gong / gong roll
Crash-chokes
(Hard / soft mallets for battery?)
Bowed crotales
Bowed cymbal
Bowed vibes
Zil-bell
Anvil
Various tribal drums
Loop wind chimes
More sound effects (wind, rain, thunder, etc.)
More synth settings

Anyway, that's all! Thanks so much! 💙

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!

Musescore Updates Never Available At iOS 12...

The only way I know that there is a new Musescore "update" at my iOS 12.... (presently 12.1.1) is because I know it from my iOS 10.1.3 at my old iPad. At the new iPad I never!!! did get any update. So the only way to test the new update it is by deleting Musescore and downloading it again from iCloud. (Remember I don't update my old iPad to keep my precious version 1.13 alive). Then the new update will be installed but then also all Songbook data is lost again which unacceptable anyway. Latest Musescore version 2.1.10-15 jan.

Score font Style Changed

I made scores using Musescore 2. But after updating to Musescrore 3, I am facing some issues with my old scores, like Title font changed, Composer text i placed in center below Title but now it comes on top left side and size decreased.

So please help, how can i retrieve same style of my old score in musescore3??

Long score, having trouble uploading.

I'm trying to upload a piece that I've been working on for a few weeks, and it is having trouble uploading. I've tried twice and both times they "processed" for 2-3 hours and then said "page not found." The piece is 419 measures long which makes me think that is a factor, but I'm not sure. Can anyone direct me?

Suggestions for Groups

Hello! So I've just got some suggestions (and bugs that need to be fixed) that maybe you could take into consideration about groups on this site?

1. Blocked users are still able to join your groups
When I block someone, I don't want them in my groups. I mean, technically I could make the group moderated or invite only, but it'll still be a lot more convenient if I didn't have to repeatedly deny a user membership (which has happened several times in the past with trolls/plagiarizers/spammers)

2. Admins can remove the group owner as admin, and group owners can remove themselves as admins
I guess the group owners can technically choose that they don't want to be admins anymore, but accidental removal of the owner by an admin has happened. I'm guessing this is a bug?

3. Admins should be able to kick users without having to find them in the members list
When you have to scroll through 500+ people just to find one user you want to kick, it's kinda annoying :P. And I have had to do this...more than once. Or maybe you should be able to have a search bar in the members section so admins can just type in their username and have them pop up without having to scroll through the entire thing. Same goes for making a user a new admin of the group.

4. Moderated groups - owners get notifications for each join request AND when the user "joins the group" - in other words, when the request is approved
I mean, the join request notification is fine, but it's a bit annoying when I get a notification right after I myself let a user into my group. I think the notification thing is great for open or even invite only groups, though.

5. Maybe groups could have a thing where owners/admins can pin discussions?
Sometimes really interesting discussions get lost after a really short time, especially if the group is really active. It would also be nice if someone really wanted to highlight something in the group but didn't want to make the group description too long or cluttered.

6. Ability to "follow" discussions?
Some discussions are really interesting. But sometimes, we aren't the creators of these discussions, so we don't know when it gets updated (and have to repeatedly check it for more comments). I think following discussions will be a cool and convenient feature.

Thanks!! :D

Stupid question

Hi everybody, I'm doing a big band arrangement, and have got my head round most of the MuseScore features I need. But what I would like to do, and I'm sure it must be possible, is find a way to insert the same text in every instrument's part for a given bar. eg 'cadenza'. At the moment I use the chord notation function - cntrl K - and repeat for every part. But I'm sure there must be a way to input the text once only, and have it appear in every part. What am I missing? 
Thanks!
