    BEFORE YOU START

    MuseScore Drumline is now optimized for MuseScore 3, our latest edition of the editor. It is important to note that MDL 1.2 does NOT work with any editor version prior to MuseScore 3. If you would like to continue using MuseScore 2.3.2, you will only be able to use MDL 1.1 and will not have access to MDL updates within that editor version.

    Step 1 - Download MuseScore 3:

    Download and install MuseScore 3 - https://musescore.org/en/download

    Step 2 - Open the Resource Manager

    Once you have installed MuseScore 3, go to the Resource Manager (Help / Resource Manager).

    Step 3 - Download and Install the MuseScore Drumline Extension

    This installation process could take a few minutes, depending on the speed of your computer, particularly when installing the MDL soundfonts.

    • MDL Front Ensemble

    MuseScore Drumline is now installed, configured and ready to use.

    Installing Updates

    From time to time updates to MuseScore Drumline may be released. You should receive a prompt to notify you of any available update when starting MuseScore.
