MuseScore 3 Files/Download

• Apr 18, 2019 - 06:00

Hello! I've been wondering something lately: is there any way to convert MS3 files back into MS2? Or, conversely, is there a way to download MS3 without getting rid of MS2?

Thank you so much! :)

(Also, I apologize if this has already been asked before in another topic.)


a) Yes, export to MusicXML in MuseScore 3, import that in MuseScore 2.
b) Downloading MuseScore 3 won't get rid of MuseScore 2 in any form or shape. Installing it won't either, it installs in parallel and can even get used in parallel.

Note MusicXML exports, but will be far from perfect. Unless you have a really good reason and don't mind spending some effort re-editing the scores in MuseScore, it's generally better to stay in MsueScore format if at all possible. So if you have a computer that simply cannot run MuseScore 3 (hardware or OS too old) you may have no choice, but otherwise, best to just install MuseScore 3.
