"Waste of time"

February 25, 2014  |  By pianolover007

 |  Version: MuseScore 1.2

Pros

No pros at all

Cons

Amateur like results, ugly and not practical at all. Secondly, the owner of musescore also exploits piracy sites like pianofiles.com.
I don't like thiefs, trying to earn advertisement money (Google adsense) with the work of other people. Bah!

Summary

Not worth looking at.

February 14, 2013  |  By ClearNote

Pros

none of any merit

Cons

The developer of this software maintains pianofiles.com - they freely distribute stolen published works by living composers.

"A very fine program (PC) to enter your music"

December 24, 2012  |  By henstt

 |  Version: MuseScore 1.2

Pros

Using it to (re-)enter handwritten songs for keyboard I found it easy to use. The on-line helpfile appeared to be very effective e.g. in placing chords above the scores, in producing triplets, in changing the size of notes and text and in altering the lay-out of the score.
To prevent obvious errors in the print, a player/synthesizer can play the song for you at the proper speed with the type of instrument you like.

Cons

None sofar (PC version).

Summary

A very nice program and free as well.

"Great scoring program. Very easy to use."

December 12, 2012  |  By jhonwask

 |  Version: MuseScore 1.2

Pros

Simple to create large scores easly. Easy note placement. Drag and drop palette items provide quick-to-make details. Just about everything you need to score for an orchestra.

Cons

Since I would like to hear my scores before I publish them, I like to set the tempo. But I cannot find a "tempo" button, nor figure how to change the tempo.

Summary

Excellent scoring program out of the very few that are out there.

"Would be 5 stars but not for Apple-Mac"

August 17, 2012  |  By jimjchgo

 |  Version: MuseScore 1.2

Pros

MuseScore has been FABULOUS for me. As a piano teacher, I do a lot of arranging and MuseScore allows me to do it easily and quickly.

Cons

However, SUDDENLY, printing out my scores has become nearly impossible. This is because, on my Apple-Mac computer, MuseScore apparently resets my printer's Top-of-Page so that it prints at the bottom of page one and then acts as if it has to begin the printing again, repeating the error and wasting MANY pages. After about 10 pages of partial printing and restarts I get a complete page but this is intolerable. If I can't print my stuff, I have to find new software. This is tragic. If you have an Apple-Mac, don't get MuseScore.

Summary

Apple Mac users should not get this software until MuseScore sends a fix for the obvious bug.

"Awesome program especially if you know your stuff"

March 20, 2012  |  By maidensolo

 |  Version: MuseScore 1.2

Pros

If you are well trained it doesn't take long at all. There is a very well designed web page to help you along sponsored by soundforge.

Cons

I haven't found a con yet.

Summary

If you teach music you have to check this out.
