Partnership with Kushview? (It's free and open source 👀)
The license is GPL v3.0, so it should be perfectly fine to make a modified version of this to fit musescore's framework smoothly/ natively. Opens the door for both modular synthesis things and VST2 support 👍
Also, removed the line referring to a false bug as @steveblower made me aware of. Original post below:
Currently, musescore 4 will have no VST2 support and I have found that Kushview Element https://kushview.net/element/ works very well with VST2 plugins inside of musescore. While there is a lot to be done before the official release of musescore 4 and even for future releases of musescore, I wonder if musescore / musegroup could reach out to the people over at kushview and use their framework to semi-'natively' handle vst2 support through museshub or something under the 'apps' section. I know that musescore is usually able to work with free/ open source products, and perhaps and licensure issues may be resolved through direct contact with kushview.
I just wanted to put this on the radar for future musescore endeavors, as kushview's virtual 'hardware/ cable connections' playground is very powerful in nature and can provide a lot to musescore, musescore users, and of course, VST2 support which is only a fraction of what it has to offer. Thanks!
P.S. - Amazing job updating the UI and musesounds! I daresay musescore is really shaping up to render pay-model notation software useless...
Re the missing first note: have you tried with the latest nightly version. A similar (or perhaps the same) problem has been fixed recently. See https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/issues/14387

Ohhh, that was musescore not kushview element. Well even better! Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
