Musescore File Explorer & Plugout Framework for Fretted Instruments
2022.05.08 |v2.4.4 |GitHub
MuseScore plugin version being developed.
This Excel based "app" allows users to explore the contents of Musescore MSCX files and apply plugouts to the XML score code which can then be loaded back into Musescore.
It is called a plugout, (rather than a plugin), since it runs externally on MSCX files.
It's initial purpose is to host a guitar "Let Ring" plugout.
See these discussions for background info:
Guitar finger picking pattern arpeggios with held notes

Please be sure to read the documentation included on the Guide worksheet.
This covers both the File Explorer and using Plugouts.
Important Security Information
This app is written in Excel VBA, (macro language), and is therefore a security risk. VBA code can do almost anything that you can on your PC. It can read, write and delete files; send emails; install a virus etc. Because of this you should verify that this app is trustworthy and will not damage your computer before using it.
The best way to do this is to inspect all the VBA code modules, including worksheet and workbook modules. Since the macro code autoruns on opening the file you should first disable macros in Excel's Trust Center until you have verified the app's safety.
Use Windows PowerShell to confirm that the MuseFx.xlsm that you download has not been altered since I uploaded it. Run the get-filehash command and check the resulting hash. If there are any differences then do not use the downloaded file.
