wassup

Hi guys!

I’m Mitch and I’m new here. I’m not able to make scores because I’m using an iPad without a keyboard, but I want to be as active on the site as possible, like giving feedback and supporting anyone else. Hopefully soon I can hook it up to my family computer.

Favourite band- Pentatonix
Instruments I play - Clarinet and a little bit of piano
Favourite YouTube channels - DanTDM (I like Minecraft ok? 😂) and Superfruit
Hobbies/stuff I do - rugby league, music, drawing, writing

Speaking of writing, I want to write a story centering around a music competition but have no idea of what it should be about. Any ideas?

Thanks for reading!

User experience improvement

Hi,

your app-version of musescore is awesome. But there are two small features that are missing which would be such a huge user experience improvement:

1. Remembering the zoom level
Things like tempo and muting instruments are saved, but not the zoom level. It really sucks to zoom in a few times on every small practice session.

2. Prescrolling the notes
When all notes displayed are played, the next pages appears. But in that moment you don't know what to play, because you simply can't see it. You can't play a piece completely without interruptions. Just scroll a bit when you are half way trough the notes currently displayed or something like that.

If these two things get implemented, i'll be premium member for years... guaranteed! :)

Thanks for listening and keep up the great work.

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!

Is Modern Monetary Theory valid at all?

In a nutshell, MMT claims that "a government does not need to maintain fiscal balance because it can print money to cover its debt. And deficit is considered absolutely necessary if the government wants to keep the private sector growing."

It's quite technical but it's a hot debate topic now. Many Democratic candidates uphold this theory to cover their spending plan. Quite a few renowned professors in economics endorse it, some claiming it being self-evident.

If you are for MMT, specifically explain why we could miraculously afford things that are unaffordable under the current orthodox monetary framework.

If you are against MMT, specifically predict what will go wrong (MMT already has a defense against argument of uncontrollable inflation, please Google)

What's your view?

I hope you'll learn something new about finance and economics while participating :)

March Challenge: Waking Spring

Hey guys! Thanks for being patient with us posting this!
Your challenge is simple! Create a theme that represents the beginning of spring!
Not too hard right? And please make sure the duration of your song is at least a minute.

We are so excited to see what you guys create!
Remember, what’s most important, is to have fun! Now go compose some music!

Also, an FYI, we are still excepting signups through tomorrow (Feb 28th). But we are no longer accepting signups when March starts. The challenge ends in exactly a month (March 27th).

Another FYI:
We did not receive scores from everyone that signed up last month.
So this challenge, we are adding a new... feature, you could say.
Through March 3rd, you have the option of backing out of the challenge if you desire. Please don’t back out after this date, as it can be hard for me and John to contact you if you haven’t completed the score, and the challenge has ended. Thank you for your cooperation.

Now, go compose! I’m so excited to see what you guys create for this challenge.

Good luck!

-Jay

Make sure remember the deadline! If you haven't sent in a score 3 days before the deadline, me or Jay will send you a private message reminding you. Remember, what we're looking for is a happy, bright kind of a feel in your score. May the best score win, and I am so excited to hear you guys! May the challenge begin!! Best of luck!

-John
