Possible compatibility with Noteperformer
Reading through the forum, I haven't clear what is MS stance with Noteperformer. It seems that I am not alone and for sure I will be among many who will be disappointed at MS not supporting NP.
I have been exchanging emails with the amazing people who make Noteperformer who say they are not working on compatibility with Musescore because the MS team has chosen to develop their own playback system and they don't want to step on another company's business.. Cool that there are businesses like Noteperformer who actually care for an ethic.
However... I am still very much confused about the topic...
If MS didn't want to implement compatibility with other sound fonts or other playback system it would be understandable, especially for open source software that does not want to implement proprietary software. But then I see in Github that there are open bugs concerning the compatibility of Kontakt and other proprietary vst...
I am puzzled. Why reduce choice instead of offering more? Why seek compatibility with some proprietary software and exclude others? Also in consideration that Noteperformer is very much loved by many Musescore users.
Could someone in MS's management explain this? Could someone clarify once and for all what is MS take on implementing compatibility with NP?
