Doubletime_v2 plugin

• Dec 12, 2017 - 13:33

I wanted a utility that would double the values of all the notes in my piece (i.e. change it from 6/8 to 3/4)

I downloaded the plugin, copied and pasted it into the plugin file in Musescore 2.1.0. When I try to use it, the program is shut down by Windows.

Please help.
Thank you.

Musescore crashed on my system too. Took another version. This did something ... useless.
I did not deal with plugins up to now, but as I worked as software developer about 40 year ago :) I was looking a bit into the code and think that it is not a good concept. Sorry, I don't know too much about that language and the possibilities of that environment. Had a look into a plugin that came with musescore called "random" and there I at once found a mistake. It wants to create notes even if it is already at the end of the score... I wonder if there is a kind of quality check for that kind of stuff. Ok, in that case the user does not realize it, but the log tells it. Don't know if I find the time to deal with this programming feature... wanted to write scores.

In now see that it is really difficult to create such a plugin, because it requires a cursor which is difficult to keep under control. Moreover there are only few descriptions available.
I tried to create my own plugin and am happy that now the output seems at least better then what you get with official doubletime oder halftime plugins but I am still not satisfied, as it is impossible to set key signatures and and and.... and it is rather slow. I am not sure if crashes musescore or not.
