Plugins en Quarter Tone Playback <p>Plugin Description:<br /> This plugin automatically applies tuning to notes in the score altered with quarter tone accidentals and key signatures. It works with the FLAT_SLASH and the SHARP_SLASH accidental signs, which are normally used in Arabic music to denote a decrease or an increase of the tuning by a quarter tone (50 cents) respectively.<br /> In Musescore, it is possible to generate custom key signatures in the Master Palette (View → Master Palette). This allows building key signatures for Arabic scales using quarter tone accidental signs. Moreover, these signs can be used as accidentals by applying them to the notes from the Accidentals Palette (Advanced Workspace should be activated).<br /> In the Musescore file QuarterTonePlayback.mscz delivered with the plugin, it is possible to see how these key signatures and alterations can be used.</p> <p>Plugin Features:<br /> • Custom Tuning: it is possible to change the tuning of the quarter tones, although the standard tuning is ±50 cents.<br /> • Key Signature Definition: although it is possible to create custom key signatures in Musescore, it is unfortunately not possible to access them in the plugin framework. As an alternative solution, the user can set the custom key signature in the plugin itself in order to notify it of the key signature.<br /> • Accidental Auto-Detection: the plugin automatically detects accidental signs and tunes the respective note automatically.</p> <table id="attachments" class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><a href=""></a></td><td>328.39 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Accidentals Plugins Composing tools Playback Thu, 21 May 2015 15:18:13 +0000 gildebert 61501 at UltraStar Export Plugin <p>This plugin exports the lyrics and the music of a score into the UltraStar format.<br /> UltraStar is free program similar to SingStar. Other programs use the UltraStar format as well, such as the open source Performous.</p> <p>These programs generally attempt to match lyrics and tone notations to an existing mp3 recording of a song. The basic idea of these kinds of games looks like it would work well for practicing, but the existing mp3 files are usually the original song from the original artist. While this works well when singing just for fun, it makes it difficult for the singer to really learn from his performance.</p> <p>This plugin requires functions only found the latest nightly builds of MuseScore, and will not run if it encounters a MuseScore version below 2.1.0.</p> <p>Features:<br /> Export of the musical score to an mp3 file.<br /> Export of the required .txt file for UltraStar.<br /> Export for Duet is implemented but untested.<br /> Selection of the Instrument and Voice to be used for the lyrics for player 1 and player 2.<br /> Annotator to mark line breaks and golden or freestyle notes.</p> <p>Usage:<br /> 1. Enter the score of the song - do NOT use repeats, as MuseScore doesn't unroll them when making the mp3.<br /> 2. Mark line breaks by selecting a note and pressing CTRL T for a Staff Text. Enter a / to indicate a line break.<br /> 3. Mark a golden note by selecting a note and pressing CTRL T for a Staff Text. Enter a * to indicate a golden note.<br /> 4. Mark a freestyle note by selecting a note and pressing CTRL T for a Staff Text. Enter a F to indicate a freestyle note.<br /> 5. The export function sets the UltraStar notations to invisible - to see them again, select "Show Invisible" from the "View" menu. The notations are hidden so as not to clutter up the printout. When "Show invisible" is active, you can edit the notations as needed.</p> <p>Alternatively, use the Annotator (Menu View/UltraStar Annotator.) Select a note with Shift and Left mouse button - draw a box around the note. Click the appropriate button to add the annotation.</p> <p>Make sure to select the correct instrument when exporting.</p> <p>The plugin has not been tested under Windows since I use Linux.</p> <table id="attachments" class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><a href=""></a></td><td>7.3 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Plugins Export Mon, 27 Apr 2015 08:24:16 +0000 Joseph Eoff 57891 at Add Note-Name Noteheads <p>Creates noteheads with alphabetic or solfege names inside of them, and adds them to a score, overlaying them on existing noteheads.

For each note, it computes the delay between the beginning of the note in the midi file and the beginning of the note you played, and the same for the end of the note. Then it colors the note depending on these delays.</p> <p>You must edit the "MidiInstrumentTraining.qml" file to set the default settings, especially the folder in which the plugin is installed (pluginsPath) and the folder in which midi files are stored (midiPath).</p> <p>Some settings can be changed in the plugin interface (you can also permanently change the default values in the MidiInstrumentTraining.qml file):<br /> - Score channel : if the current score as multiple parts, you can select the one you want to play (0 is the first part, 1 is the second, ...)<br /> - Midi Instrument name: The name of the midi instrument in order to be able to connect its output to the plugin and to qsynth. You can use "aconnect -i" (with and without connecting the instrument) to find its name. If you change the name, you should click on "restart synth" to be able to ear the instrument.<br /> - Midi Instrument channel: It's probably always 0...<br /> - WEIGHT START: This corresponds to the weight attributed to the delay between the score and the instrument at the beginning of the note in the computation of the color.<br /> - WEIGHT END (+): This corresponds to the weight attributed to the delay between the score and the instrument at the end of the note if the instrument is late.<br /> - WEIGHT END (-): This corresponds to the weight attributed to the delay between the score and the instrument at the end of the note if the instrument ends in advance. For wind instruments, the player sometimes needs to breath between two notes, so there should be more tolerance for a negative delay than a positive one... For other instruments, "WEIGHT END (-)" should probably be equal to "WEIGHT END (+)".<br /> - MAX BADNESS: This correspond to the maximum weighted delay considered for the coloration (red note). You should increase it if it is too difficult to obtain blue notes and decrease it if it is too easy...</p> <table id="attachments" class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><a href=""></a></td><td>22.24 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Plugins Other Thu, 13 Nov 2014 23:14:14 +0000 JBD 39091 at Trombone Slide Positions and Notes English <p>Download from the link below and install as per the <a class="freelinking external" href="">manual</a></p> <p>Writes the slide positions for a tenor trombone without a valve under each note and the name of the note. </p> <p>For german note names just uncomment some lines with a text editor in this plugin.</p> <table id="attachments" class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><a href=""></a></td><td>1.71 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Plugins Thu, 13 Nov 2014 21:59:27 +0000 gatonero 39086 at Violin Colour code <p>just by one click putting all the colour code above the violin music sheet</p> <p>Just download the file and put it in the plugin folder</p> <p>remove also the ".TXT" so the file is named : violin.js</p> <p>Any questions, feel free: <a href=""></a></p> <table id="attachments" class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><a href="">viool.js_.txt</a></td><td>3.5 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Plugins Notes & Rests Simplified notation Mon, 22 Sep 2014 22:52:05 +0000 serge.tkint 34131 at German Fingerling <p>Inserts tabs for German Fingerling.<br /> Instead of using a dedicated font like the Native American Flute plugin, the tabs are created by stacking elements of the "Arial Unicode MS" font.</p> <table id="attachments" class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><a href="">GermanFingerling.js_.txt</a></td><td>7.99 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Plugins Simplified notation Sat, 13 Sep 2014 20:03:26 +0000 Jeffrey Edwards 33176 at Two Row Diatonic Accordion Fingering <p>Develeped with Musescore 1.3.Compatibility with other versions unknown.<br /> This plugin pruduces fingering for two row diatonic accordions. Suitable for folk tunes with a single note melody line. The plugin may be run in single or two row modes. The two row mode will take bellows direction into account as suggested by any chord symbols present. Compatible with accordians in the style of the Hohner Erica and Pokerwork varieties with accidentals. Suitable for one row varieties as well if run with the "strict one row" setting.</p> <h4>Fingering Text Styles</h4> <p>Just a quick note on the two fingering styles selectable from the dialog.</p> <ol> <li> The third button (root) is "1". buttons before "1" are representes as "1|" and "2|". the equals sign "=" represents bellows out.

It is always wise to work with a copy of your work rather than the original.</p> <p>MuseScore Arrange Parts plug-in Release Notes<br /> =============================================</p> <p>This plug-in attempts to take the grunt work out of writing arrangements. By this we mean that we<br /> assume that the composer has written an arrange for piano and now wishes to allocate it to<br /> instruments of an orchestra or some other ensemble.</p> <p>The plug-in does not add or remove notes except in one special case. It simply breaks down the piano<br /> chords and distributes the chord voices to the ensemble instruments.</p> <p>The case in which the plug-in may appear to add notes is that it will duplicate notes to make up the<br /> voice numbers. For example, if the piano part has a mixture of two and three notes voicings, Arrange<br /> Parts will distribute the notes amongst three instruments and double the lowest note where<br /> necessary. The alternative would have been to insert rests, but if an arrangement was using a mix of<br /> two and three, for example, chords, then the third part would stutter in a peculiar way. </p> <p>What Arrange Parts does is fairly straightforward in musical terms, and only displays any<br /> "intelligence" in the case of the woodwind in orchestral arrangements. Here it knows something of<br /> the ways that Rimsky-Korsachov recommended the different woodwind instruments should be used<br /> together in order to maintain balance (Treatise on Orchestration: available from<br /> Where there are different possibilities. Arrange Parts chooses one at random. If its choice in a<br /> particular phrase isn't to your liking, then undo and try again.</p> <p>Notes:<br /> ------<br /> There are considerable technical difficulties in making this plug-in work satisfactorily die to<br /> limitations in the interface available to a plug-in writer. Attempts have been made to overcome<br /> these, but by following the few simple procedural rules detailed below the user of Arrange Parts<br /> should not encounter any problems (other than bugs: report them to me immediately!).</p> <p>One problem is that Arrange Parts will create staves for instruments it does not find existing.<br /> However, it cannot name them. The composer has to do this themself. At the same time the composer<br /> needs to set the synthesizer sound because although Arrange Parts details the sound, the synthesizer<br /> ignores it, at least in MuseScore v1.3.</p> <p>Also, when a new staff is created, MuseScore does not set the key signature although it is a<br /> property of the score, not the staff.</p> <p>Best advice:<br /> -----------<br /> 1. Begin your arrangement with a template chosen from MuseScore's library that most resembles your<br /> target ensemble. This will then enable you to set the key which will be applied to all staves and<br /> all of the sounds will be set correctly.</p> <p>2. Switch to Concert Pitch if you are using transposing instruments. This will look odd if you are<br /> used to reading transposing instrument staves, but it saves many problems later on.</p> <p>3. Do not change the order of staves. If you need instruments in a different order, leave it until<br /> you have finished. Arrange Parts tries to keep track of instruments, but it can easily lose track.<br /> Don't fiddle! Leave that to the violinists (sorry!).</p> <p>4. Do not rename the parts. Arrange Parts relies on the default names.</p> <p>V1.0<br /> ----<br /> V1.0 Knows of two ensembles, the orchestra and Jazz Big Band.</p> <p>Known bugs:<br /> ----------<br /> Makes no attempt to bring notes into range. Arrange Parts is not aware of the ranges of instruments.</p> <table id="attachments" class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><a href=""></a></td><td>13.53 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Plugins Mon, 27 Jan 2014 08:43:15 +0000 cwhysall 24445 at InstrumentPartDetails <p><a href="" title="Download: view_instruments-js.txt (1.21 KB)">view_instruments-js.txt</a> A tiny utility to display all the relevant instrument parameters in a score</p> <table id="attachments" class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><a href="">view_instruments-js.txt</a></td><td>1.21 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Plugins Sat, 25 Jan 2014 07:56:27 +0000 avronp 24417 at Display music as shakuhachi notation <p>This plugin opens the current score using the <b>ShakuViewer</b> Java program, which displays it as <b>shakuhachi notation</b>.

Note: an exposed 5th between II and V is allowed by Lovelock's textbook, but this plugin will still mark it as a problem. It is up to the composer to recognize such exposed 5ths as being acceptable. </li> </ol> <h4> Single-voice Checks: </h4> <p> The following errors are detected for each voice selected (or all voices if nothing was selected):</p> <ol> <li> All augmented intervals between one note and the next </li> <li> Diminished 5ths, when they are not followed by a note within the interval </li> <li> Leaps of a diminished 4th and 7th (if you, unlike me, are not a novice composer, you may know how to use these intervals correctly; use your discretion). </li> <li> Leaps of a 6th are better avoided, but should be followed by a note within the interval </li> <li> Octaves, when they are not preceeded and followed by a note within the interval </li> <li> Leaps of a 7th, 9th or larger, even with one note intervening </li> <p>Text is written to the score above any such intervals detected to notify the user of their existence, and the notes themselves are changed to red colour. Using the undo button will easily undo all changes.</p> <p>Currently, there are no plans to add any further checks.</p> <h3> Assumptions made about the score: </h3> <ol> <li> <p>Each voice should only have one note at a time (i.e. one note per museScore "chord"). If a voice contains a chord of two or more notes, it is annotated as an error on the score.</p> <p>To check your chords properly, each voice should play only one note at a time, as only the top note of each museScore chord in a single voice is checked. </li> <li> <p>If there is a selection, only the selected notes are checked. If nothing is selected, the entire score is checked. </li> <li> <p>Any number of voices may be checked at once, but if there are more than four voices, consecutive octaves may be more likely. </li> <li> <p>For the purposes of MULTI-VOICE analysis, if different voices contain simultaneous notes of different lengths, the longer note(s) are treated as if they were split into shorter notes of the same length as the shortest simultaneous note. No notes on the score itself are changed (apart from the colour of the notes). </li> <li> <p>For the purposes of analysis for the SINGLE-VOICE checks, no notes are split. Consecutive notes of the same pitch ARE TREATED AS ONE NOTE for the analysis (the score itself is not changed). I am only a novice composer. If you think consecutive notes of the same pitch should not be treated as one, please raise this as an issue.</p> </li> </ol> </ol> Analysis Plugins Proof reading Mon, 04 Jun 2012 03:32:49 +0000 c3yvonne7 16806 at MIDI Sight Reader <p>Load a score and see the notes turn green as you play them on your MIDI keyboard.
