A big question...

• Sep 25, 2023 - 00:15

I’m trying to switch over from Musescore 3 to 4, but now the MDL drumline in the marching show I’m writing doesn’t play during playback, and I’ve had some issues with accent placement with the drum parts as well. I learned about the program sforzando, but I don’t want to take up a ton of space on the computer with stuff related to Musescore. I also can no longer open the file with Musescore 3 because I've opened it on a newer version. My question is: is sforzando a thing that most computers can handle? Does it take up a ton of storage? I think if I can figure out how to use the custom sounds work, that would be the way to go but I'm not sure if it's feasible for average computers.


my impressions, may be inaccurate.

> MDL playback

I'm not aware MDL works with musescore 4. How do you install it?
"major percussion overhaul we have planned for later in the 4.x series." https://musescore.org/en/node/354177

> sforzando, but I don’t want to take up a ton of space

the program is tiny, but it extracts and creates temporary file when you load a sf2/sf3 file, the temp could take up some harddisk space <1GB each commonly. It does not create temp loading sfz file. MDL use sfz right?

> a ton of storage

relativity, the beautiful Muse Sounds >20GB

> open the file with Musescore 3
