When I'm writing for any ensemble that contains the MDL instruments i always experience a glitch that happens after i stop playing the score. I will usually click the stop button and when it does a huge bang of all of the instruments in MDL being used come at unison and full volume. This will happen a few times and after so many MDL will start glitching and it will make the velocity go all over the place. It makes it sound almost corrupt. I know it isnt corrupt because after restarting the platform everything is fine. Then the sound happens again and it goes haywire and i have to restart the program once again. I've experienced this before but only now has it become extremely prominent. This is my main issue however the problem with shots also bothers me. The unaccented taps are louder than a rim shot. I can get around it by using a ping shot (which is slightly louder but it is still a bit quieter than an accented note) however i still prefer to use a rimshot. Thanks for listening! Hope you can figure out the problem soon.Reply
I'm currently in the middle of writing a movement for an indoor drumline program, and I have a few voiceovers that need to go into a few certain measures. Does anybody know how to achieve this?
Hello! I am trying to add muted cymbal crashes to my marching cymbal part but there is no sound in MDL for this. Would I be able to add it myself or is this simply not possible? Sorry, I'm not very savvy with this program.
Edit: I've been trying to edit the .sfz, and it's quite difficult. Is there an easy way to do this with Polyphone or is there an easier program to use?
Does anyone know a way to get a good sounding suspended cymbal roll in Musescore? I've tried almost everything and it all sounds like garbage lol. Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated!
I had a perfectly good MuseScore 3 working program, after upgrading to the latest version 3.0.5. There was a link to download MuseScore Drumline, which I clicked and installed the extension. Now I can't get MuseScore to load at all!
I've re-downloaded it but Windows 10 refuses to open it. All I get is increased CPU and Memory usage and eventually I have to close the unopened app.
I decided to write a piece with 3 completely random songs to challenge myself. I believe it will help me in the future when I write professionally and need to transition between movements.
Please critique this piece! Or at least some feedback (thoughts, opinions, requests) would be nice.
If you stick around for updates, expect a big run after where Moonlight Sonata left off. It will help to transition back into Hymn of Acxiom.
- The harp part is a sound effect, not an actual part to be played
- All diddled phrases are to be played as normal rolls
- I will update sticking soon
- This piece will eventually come full circle and will end with the ending of the first unoriginal piece
- I changed all the settings so the sheet music would look as close to Sibelius as possible, but they don't go through well online
- I used two soundfonts
- Hymn to Acxiom
- La Marseillaise (French National Anthem, only minor section)
- The second half of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata mvmt. 3
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?)
Suspended cymbals / chokes
Gong / gong roll
(Hard / soft mallets for battery?)
Various tribal drums
Loop wind chimes
More sound effects (wind, rain, thunder, etc.)
More synth settings
Anyway, that's all! Thanks so much! 💙
Hey, guys! I'm Pete-Michael Nwokedi! I am a front ensemble and winds writer and I am willing to write for your group if you need a concept! I write for front ensemble (including drumset, timpani, bass/electric guitar, and synths (even MalletStation)) and marching cymbals! I can also write pit for your marching band/pep band if need be.
Additionally, if you have an indoor winds group, I can also write for them!
If you need battery to be written as well, I also have a battery writer at my side! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or respond to the comment/privately message me and I will be sure to respond as soon as possible!
On Musescore 3 I'm wondering how to make the crescendo end before the end of the measure as the crescendo seems to only stay on the end of the measure and I cant make it end earlier

Is anyone having trouble with MDL crashing everytime they try to input snare line? I put a couple notes of snare, then Muescore completely crashes and DOES NOT save a recovery document. Anybody help?
I'm relatively new to this software and I'm having difficulty creating an odd tuplet ratio in one of my bars.
I'm trying to input 20 notes in the space of 7 quarter notes (20:7 relation) in a 7/4 Bar, but for some reason I keep having trouble. Please help!
