Mac iPad Sidecar Apple Pencil

• Apr 27, 2020 - 05:26

I'm having fun using MuseScore in sidecar mode with an Apple Pencil!

I don't know if I'd use it for a proper job, I think I'm probably quicker using it more conventionally but I've only been playing for 20 minutes and I'm finding it a fun way to compose. A bit like writing but you can hear the page. It feels good! :D

You navigate around the page with your fingers and edit draw etc with the pencil. It's a lot of moving in and out of notation mode by pressing [N] and [esc] and you have to be careful not to accidentally augment the bar size or shift the note from its play position.


Is there a thread discussing this yet? I couldn't find one. I'm interested in other peoples experiences with it. Any tips or tricks anyones worked out.. I imaging it would be a little different from note input on a windows touch screen, anyone tried both?

As always, sincere thank you to the MuseScore developers! You're the best!
