Select playback method of Grace Notes, Arpeggio & Glissando and Articulations & Ornaments

Configurable playback for Ornaments & Articulations (hopefully Grace Notes and Arpeggio & Glissando too) was once mentioned after reviewing MuseScore with the Goldberg Variations (link ).

Once applied to the note(s), you would right-click whatever was applied, and select the desired playback method from a list (if there there are different interpretations).


There's lots of confusion with regards to grace note appearance and playback (probably others are affected too) - I discussed it here not long ago.

The drop-down list would feature a few options for playback - it is images of normal notes, indicating how it would look and sound, if the user wasn't using all these things.

This would perhaps be faster and cleaner than a piano-roll, but the latter could be used if more precision, or something unavailable is required. If this occurs, perhaps MuseScore can add or refine options.

Have you looked at the CHord Articulation window CHen?

That provides customisation of ornament playback.

The only thing it lacks is the ability to save or load presets, which personally I would like to see implemented at some point.

To select playback method, what do I right-click: the grace note in the score, the grace notes palette, the grace note in the palette, … what? or is it that since I’m on version 1.3, I can’t playback grace notes?

Hi All, Just curious to know where I can find the status of turns playback in the development version of Musescore? Are there any plans to have this in V2?
