Import a Sibelius plugin to Musescore - or get paid for the job.

• Dec 30, 2019 - 21:45

Hello friends,
as I am considering leaving Sibelius, there is one big problem. There is one plugin that I do need in Musescore.

Do you know if there is a way to import that plugin to Musescore? I know the person who wrote that plugin, there shouldn't be a problem to get the rights.

Or is anybody here who would be willing to write that plugin for the Musescore sphere? I'd be willing to pay you a couple hundred Euros.

I am very sure that that kind of plugin hasn't been written so far in Musescore, many people in Germany (church people) would love that plugin.

Greetings from Germany,


It would help it we knew what the Sibelius plugin does. Could you post a link to it, or, failing that, a detailed description of it?

half note: a comma behind the number
whole note: two commas
brevis & longa: I don't know, I've never seen it anywhere

This kind of music is used by a very special group of churches in Germany (maybe several thousand people), I'm not sure if brevis & longa have ever been used in that kind of subcultur.

As with shape-notes, which force you to learn a new, crazy, ambiguous system of reading music, this seems to address the fear of the difficulty of reading music as opposed to the actual difficulty. Maybe it helps some people, what can I say, but ... I remember my own late father a very long time ago, who could sing a little but not read music, taking a sheet of music paper and trying to invent his own little system of high-and-low marks reacting to exactly this impetus ... "whew! It's easier than actually reading music!" Who am I to say ....
