Slow Trills

• Sep 10, 2017 - 19:40

Has anyone had a problem with trills in compositions with slow tempos? That is, the trill is also slowed down when it would be normally played in a live performance. Has anyone figured out a solution to this problem?


The trill playback in MuseScore does indeed depend on tempo. Probably there should be a lower limit on this, and then it should switch to a fixed speed. If the trill playback is important to you, workaround would be to add an invisible staff for playback purposes and notation the trill manually there (marking it invisible after entering the notes of course).

I manually worked around it by adding a second set of notes in the staff where I wanted the trill, alternating them at the speed I wanted (in this case, triplet halves) and rendering them invisible.
