Just out of curiosity, what would it take to have built in VST support for MuseScore?
I realize all of the following:
1) MuseScore is primarily a notation software, not a playback software (or DAW).
2) MuseScore already supports VST albeit in a very round-about manner (with JACK).
3) No one who is not willing to contribute in code should complain too much about any features they would like on MuseScore.
With these things in mind, however, I am curious about what kind of coding it would take to get a built in VST player (such as Sibelius has). I am interesting in helping code for this, although I don't know how much use I'll be at it.
I'm trying to understand what goes on behind the scenes in the current version of MuseScore. If someone could take me through the steps of how we get from what I see on the screen to the audio I hear, that would be a great start.
Thanks for any information and I'm grateful for the many improvements in MuseScore 3.
