Re: MuseScore 3.0 released

Here's a recent, original composition (not by me) with what I thought was a very appealing engraving: https://musescore.com/r_d/scores/5482385?from=notification#comment-5180196 By the way, they're on version 3.0.5 now. A lot of the fixes are on the level of "how was this program functioning before??...

When to respell enharmonically?

Dear Notatio, I am arranging Robert Fuchs' double bass sonata whereby the piano becomes a woodwind quintet. It likes to modulate a lot and the piano already has double sharps, and this is exacerbated in the transposing parts. There are also instances where the piano transitions from sharps to flats ...

Re: MuseScore 3.0 released

It would be great to hear how you use MS and show us some of the examples. It is very hard to find appealing scores done with MS, but not impossible to do many great things with the software. All the best, O. I've already seen and read your thread some time ago with great interest, and I think we h...

Re: MuseScore 3.0 released

Did anyone have time to test it? I am on v2 because of the project. On the whole, I am very enthusiastic, although the biggest feature - the autoplacement - will have a greater impact on ad-hoc and educational users compared to professional engravers who occupy themselves with minutiae. As for me, ...

Re: Classical concerto for double bass in MuseScore

Yes, I meant on IMSLP. The parts that you can get from musescore.com are just automatically extracted from the score.

Re: Classical concerto for double bass in MuseScore

OK, thank you for the explanation and for the font suggestions.

There is just one more issue that I would really appreciate getting comments on. In the parts, I added cue notes, but the way I did it seems distracting. Please have a look at one of the oboe parts, for example.

Re: Classical concerto for double bass in MuseScore

Some very nice work for a beginner. Thank you, that's good to hear... I would suggest you steer well clear of TNR for music engraving. Try New Century Schoolbook for a drop-in replacement that harmonizes much better with the style of your pages. That's not Times New Roman, it's FreeSerif, the defau...

Classical concerto for double bass in MuseScore

Hi notatio, I've been lurking here for some time, but now I feel ready to talk about an engraving that I've been working on for the past year... The piece in question is a work for double bass and orchestra by Domenico Dragonetti from the early 19th century. I made the score and parts freely availab...
