Playlists - Only way I'll hear all the compositions I've downloaded. + Best way to excite kid about Musescore.
[Edit: See also my comment on Howard's comment below! Do not brush this suggestion aside! Do not think mp3s are the answer. Does Musescore itself not appreciate the tremendous potential of Musescore?]
I've downloaded perhaps 150 original compositions + 300 well-known songs.
I'll never take the time to open and play (listen to) each one, one at a time. I'll never hear the creations!
I want to be play songs in the background until my kid says "wow! i want to learn that!" Opening each one, one at a time, doesn't flow. Musescore becomes an interruption - the enemy - instead of a source of delight. Most of the time, nothing is playing, because we are engaged in some other activity (card game, making food, playing with pet, wrestling, etc). A playlist would really help.
I could open several in a row - several operations, without waiting for each song to end before i open the next. But that won't help. I would still need to wait until one song finishes before i click for the next song to play.
I'd prefer for the notes to be visually playing along with the audio, but if it's easier to implement just the audio, that would still be great. (Ideal would be for the user to have the option.)
I know others have suggested musescore adds playlists. There wasn't much if any discussion - at least not where I saw. I'm hoping my rationales above will lead to a more thorough consideration of this proposal.
Whatever the # of people asking for this feature, I'm sure many people would end up using and loving it.
