Articulation and Ornamentation Control

Plugins to manipulate note attack and release and compose ornamentation, toward the goal of facilitating artistic phrasing. See the documentation provided at the link at the bottom!!! Download by clicking the "Download" link below.

These plugins require MuseScore 3.3 or later! That includes the current latest releases.

Here are some demos online on the site (don't need any local application software).

These plugins eliminate the need to struggle with the Piano Roll Editor, or customize portati via MSCX editing (although both techniques remain available). Scores customized with these plugins will play correctly in any version of MuseScore 3, including on the site.

appoggiatura.qml v. 3.1 — 3 Sept 2019 This new version of the appoggiatura plugin allows control of fine overlap between the appoggiature and the main note, producing subtle enhanced legato. To hear this effect in action, listen to the last measure in particular of this score of mine. Please read

DockArticulate.qml v. 3.5— 5 Oct 2019 New, additional, plugin provides the functionality of articulate.qml as a docked (always-visible) dialog/UI element, which is often more convenient. The old one is not going away. Please see (Released 3.3 needed; some earlier betas don't support it).

triller.qml v.3.2 — 23 Dec 2019 The trill generator now offers a final “step” extent of the main note after the trill, that is, the trill can apply to less than the full note. See for an example.

triller.qml v.3.3 — 13 Jan 2020 Triller plugin now initializes from current state of ornamentation on note. See

triller.qml v3.6, appoggiatura.qml 3.2 — 18 May 2020 Both fixed to no longer terminate dock plugins (plugin system problem). See
