Running MuseScore

Postby Ariadna » Wed Aug 01, 2012 3:06 pm

Hello, I'm Ariadna from Argentina...
My husband and I are music teachers, we have turned to Linux some years ago but we still keep Windows in one of our computers just to be able to use Finale. I've been reading all your posts about Score editors for Linux, I've tried Denemo but we didn't like it. Now I'm trying to install MuseScore from "Terminal" but I can't, I'm surely doing something wrong....could you please help me on this so we can try Musescore? Thanks!!!!

Bienvenidos Ariadna,

What distribution are you running? If it is Ubuntu or related, it's in the Software Center. In terminal it would be just sudo apt-get install musescore
I think.

Me encanta musescore. Lo uso con muchos de mis alumnos!

Thanks for answering so quickly!! I have Ubuntu, at the Software Center appears "Muse", perhaps it's that....I'll try!!

Con gusto! Muse y MuseScore eran conjuntos, pero ahora son seperados.

Hay foros en español aqui: http://musescore.org/es/forum
Tambien, los foros en inglés son muy útiles.

Saludos Ariadna, y demás compañeros de este foro.

Recientemente realicé un taller sobre MuseScore para la facultad de la escuela de música donde trabajo. Publiqué el material que usé para el taller en mi blog. Si lo interesan, pueden encontrarlo aquí:

http://mrdemusica.com/material-de-musescore-en-espanol/

También tengo un breve video en español, explicando algunas cosas básicas de MuseScore. Fue hecho en MuseScore 1.1, pero les puede servir para sus estudiantes:

Todo está publicado bajo licencia Creative Commons, así que siéntanse en la libertad de compartirlo y reproducirlo para sus estudiantes, si así lo estiman necesario. Espero que les sea útil.

Can MuseScore insert notes in the score in realtime, during performance? I suppose it would require tempo-syncing with the software instrument...?

Brian,

Musescore does not have that capacity at this time. You can record to any MIDI sequencer though, export the MIDI, and import to Musescore. Currently, Musescore accepts MIDI input, but just note-by-note, not in real-time.

Cool! I'll try that. :)
I suppose it's also possible to have both a MIDI sequencer and audio recording working contemporaneously too, right? That would give both audio and digital results of the same performance..
Then I'd load the MIDI data into Muse to create the score, correct?
