An Idea for the Benefit of Composers

Jul 13, 2019

It’s common knowledge that Musescore’s playback is not the best. Many of us dream about having a real group play them, but how realistic is that? Not many professionals will play our pieces; however, there’s a program many of us are aware of called NotePerformer, a program that allows your pieces to be interpreted by a human-like AI. There are two major problems, though—it’s pretty expensive, and MuseScore doesn’t support it. That means that you would also need to buy a program (like Sibelius) that does support it.

Once in a while, you might see someone with NotePerformer on Musescore. You might have noticed them putting people’s pieces through the program and sending them a version with amazing playback quality. How can we all have access to this? I have a solution.

A group should be started. This group would consist of composers and people with NotePerformer. We would gather as many people with NotePerformer as possible, and they would put scores they like into the program and send them back to us. Basically, the group would be like a collection of us and orchestras ready to play pieces by not-so-famous composers. Why not? The only issue is figuring out who the founder should be and making people aware. In order to have access to our own pieces sounding like live performances, we need to work together to form this group. If you’re interested, could you leave a reply? I would like to see if this is an idea worth pursuing. Thanks!
