Default Settings (MuseScore 2)

• Sep 15, 2020 - 01:45

Hi Everyone,

A really basic question: I'm still using MuseScore 2 for some scores. How do I set the default general volume (slider) and individual volumes for instruments (dials) for new scores so they open at those preset levels? For some reason, they're set too high. Also, I want to reduce the default number of measures for new scores from what is now 32 to 10 staves. How do I do that?

Sorry for such a newbie problem, but I can't seem to find this in the manual or in the controls. No doubt something very basic I'm overlooking, as usual.




You mean you want specific instruments to be at specific levels in the Mixer? Set up a score the way you want, save it to your Templates folder, then select that as your template when creating new scores. There are some limitations with this process in MuseScore 2, but it shoudl would OK if you then restart the program. If you mean the master volume, that's not per score, it's set for the program globally in View / Synthesizer. I don't think there is a way to change the number that is pre-filled-in for number of measures the first time you create a new score in a session, but once you change that, the change is remembered for the duration of that session, so others scores you create in the same session get that value.
