musescore issue getting a composition to play

apparently, now all of a sudden, I can only get my music to play if it is the default soundfont. If I use another soundfont library such as the SChristian Collins 1.471, it just processes indefinitely when I press play. I do not see a solution to this. If I can only use the default soundfont in uploads, it makes no sense to upload anything anymore. So, unless I can fix this, I won't be posting any more. So it goes.

Need someone with an eye for French Horn: L'Arlésienne

in Brass

Hello!

I don't get on the forums much anymore, and this UI is garbage, but I could use a hand none-the-less.

I'm looking for someone who plays french horn specifically. Take a peek at this here arrangement:

 
https://musescore.com/thunder_skunk/l-arl-sienne-in-bb

I jammed it together from memory of playing it forever ago, snagging the main bits from ISMLP. Very often, my horn parts are the last to be arranged and usually get the worst hodge podge of voices. This is a great example of how not to write for any instrument in general, but it happens. This was in c minor, now it's in g minor, and the french horn is simply way to low.

I have a good sense of the comfort level for the other instruments as I play them, but I've done little more than fart around with horn. I'd greatly appreciate some cries of resentment and guidance on how it should be if you could.

Thanks!

Introduction & Transposing

in Brass

Hello.  I'm a new member of the group & a fairly inexperienced musescore user.  I've been playing the trombone for 51 years & the euphonium & baritone for 42.  @ 10 of those years professionally & 25 semi-professionally, & the rest just for fun.  I've played in many groups of different styles, but my favorites have been big band, brass quintet, & symphony orchestra.  I've also enjoyed tuba-euphonium ensembles & trombone ensembles.  Merry TubaChristmas is one of my favorite annual events.  Due to pain & wear and tear, I've recently had to put down my trombone - at least for  a while.  But I'm enjoying playing my new euphonium.  I've been arranging for big band & brass ensembles for more than 20 years.

This may be the wrong place for this question... Is there a way to transpose & print the transposition?  Thanks in advance.

I am pretty new to composing (only started 2-3 years ago) and I would like any critique, feedback, or suggestions, etc. for some of my original comps.

This would be greatly appreciated Thanks :)

What are y'all favorite artists/songs?

I really really like Disney music in general. (don't judge even tho I'm a teen) XD. I also like Imagine Dragons and Twenty One Pilots. I don't really have a favorite song tho....... Also, help. I've been bored lately and do y'all have any cheesy/corny jokes? LOL. Follow me on ROBLOX: smartypants0926. I haven't been active lately cause my dad blocked Roblox sooo. But my friend is helping me earn money on certain games while I am gone. CYAAAAA LATer!!! 

Can anyone give me any kind of feedback/advice/opinion on this etude i wrote for the classical guitar?

 This is my 2nd etude, i accidentally wrote the descending part of the opening scale and through a sort of inversion i did the ascending part, i found the unevenness in the structure of it every time it repeated to be interesting, so i got inspired to develop this strange idea into a cohesive melodic piece, took me all day of just being in a lunatic composing mode to complete this piece, which honestly didn't expect a full piece in one day since i am very slothful with writing music, and considering how long i have been playing guitar, my theory is kinda weak, i am not even sure what key this is in, please don't be afraid to give any harsh criticism, i accept literally anything, oh and i am especially interested in thoughts about this being a good guitar etude, because even though i wrote this for guitar, i havnt been able to play it because i am in the middle to learning other music so eventually expect to see fingerings and slur signs everywhere! https://musescore.com/user/26880706/scores/5851857 

Just finished a suite for solo cello, comments and advises are welcomed

https://musescore.com/user/6595486/scores/5826114

I started the first section as an exercise for modulation, and then decided to expand it into a dance suite. I wrote the sections in the following sequence: prelude, gigue, sarabande, allemande, and minuet.
The minuet was written yesterday during a day-long severe headache, which is a little different from the other parts. I am not sure if it sounds alright here, or I should replace it with a "normal" one.
Any comments about this suite is welcomed!

Also, I would be grateful if cellists can help me to correct the notation (many thanks to Teodor Lontos for his previous help).
And to you, I have 2 questions:
1. Above which pitch would you prefer a treble clef?
2. For a piece with changing tones, would you prefer key signatures or just mark it with the notes (as the present version does)?

Thanks and have a nice Sunday.
