Making choral "practice tapes"

• Nov 25, 2018 - 08:09

Well, not tapes, of course, but I don't know how to say a recording of a choral work with the user's part loud and the rest very quiet. I understand I can do this using the mixer, but I wonder if there is any sort of "quick solution" which automatically makes four tracks, for each of SATB in turn?


I agree with you, because it is indeed tedious to create four separate files with the volume emphasized for S A T B in turn. This process could surely be automated, with a small popup window to set the relative volumes of emphasized voice, unemphasized voices and piano/organ accompaniment? Like this mockup:

This would of course need a Feature Request, and then we would have to wait until a developer picks up the idea. But there must be plenty of MuseScore users who would enjoy the ability to create at the click of a button the four SATB practice scores for their choir?

Did anything ever come of this? I can't see how the referenced plugin works, but I do like the mock-up here. It doesn't need to be complicated, just saves a lot of tedious work with the mixer and saving multiple versions manually.

I'm currently transcribing a piece with seven voices, so even more reason to wish such a feature existed.
