metronome click

How can I export to MP3 and include the sounds of the metronome clicks ?


Since the metronome sound is not part of the written score, and MuseScore exports audio of the 'score playback', you can add a percussion staff to your score and use woodblock as a 'metronome'. Being part of the score, it will then be included in MuseScore's audio export.

Alternatively, you can use a free software like Audacity to record MuseScore's (metronome + score) playback. Audacity can churn out an MP3 from that recording.

wee need things like the accented first beat, a different sound first beat and easy changing for different time signatures. Musescore - you need a metronome playback feature in audio export.

I know I'm late to the party, but I found this old MuseScore 3 file which shows how applying the Woodblock instrument from the Mixer to pitched notes can make the audio output sound with 'fake' accents:
Even though it uses an unpitched percussion instrument (i.e., woodblock), the sounds do change with pitch.
Once one full measure is written (or copied) into a score, selecting that measure and repeatedly pressing R will fill the score with "metronome" sounds. (That staff can be made invisible for viewing/printing.)

I haven't tried it yet in MS4. Will probably have to use Marc's "unbundled" GM soundfont in MS4.
