MS Sound Files on SMP

• Aug 21, 2018 - 21:08

I came across the Sheet Music Plus site. My question is, Are MS playback sound files in MP-3 format, or can they be put into MP-3 format so they can be uploaded to SMP? (My own copyrighted work, I mean.) DO Musescorers use SMP a lot? Am I right that sound is MP-3?


MuseScore can export into any of several formats - for example, MP3, WAV, FLAC, OGG, and MIDI. Pick which one you want when you do File / Export. There is no situation in which MuseScore picks the format itself - you are always in control of this.

On I do believe mp3 is used behind the scenes, but I wouldn't be concerned with that - just export the audio yourself. Or use the Download option on and choose which format you want (MP3 and MIDI are offered as options).

If you don't have lame installed on your computer you will either need to install it or upgrade to generate mp3 files from the program. You can download the mp3 from if you prefer without any upgrades.
