Re: Beauty in a digitalised world of music copying

David, I think that many musicians like to see composer's handwritten scores, it is just very nice to experience, I have always been asked for the same, but my scores are not so very well legible.
On the other hand, Finale can produce truly anemic scores, if everything is used by default.

Re: Test topic.

That is very strange. Try to post just a short test message there, you can delete it.

John, are you trying to post using TapaTalk? I have just yesterday updated the plugin. Perhaps that is why. I can turn it off. Not sure how many people use tapatalk.

Re: Engraving in MuseScore

I have done now the first page of my violin piece in MuseScore 2. I have started on Linux about year ago, than on OS X than stopped; and now continue working on Windows 10 and a large monitor (27" BenQ). What I can say: the output is very good, better than what I expected. I have started the same sc...

Re: Beauty in a digitalised world of music copying

Copyists proficient in SCORE claim that it is faster than any of its competitors. They may claim that, but also all others, yet no competition in music engraving "quickness" has ever been done. SCORE has been in use when no other software was on the market, so that type of comparison has not been i...

Re: Beauty in a digitalised world of music copying

I think that one thing is clear: musicians and experienced engravers do need a human-like intervention in engraving.

Beauty in a digitalised world of music copying

I just wanted to continue sharing my thoughts (from another thread) about an idea of beauty versus idea of artificial intelligence. If we don't want to let the software take some or even the most of engraving decisions, but we use a software as an empty canvas to be manually filled in, there will be...

Re: Engraving in MuseScore

Taking back this topic, I continue with my violin piece in MuseScore. A very interesting thing is clear: MuseScore is not capable of doing many things automatically, and therefore I am forced to do manual adjustments, thus taking my own decisions in pure engraving. Also, with manual adjustments you ...
