Microtonal Plugins

• Nov. 23, 2020 - 16:05

Hello fellow Musescorians! I've become interested in attempting to write and experiment using Microtones and using the microtonal scale but I've yet to find it on Musescore. I was wondering if there are any Microtonal plugins for Musescore 3 for Windows? If there are, please link them in a comment, or if they're accessible on the software without a plugin, please describe how to do it. Thank you!


I write microtonal music for piano and notate it as "scordatura" piano, I mean, I write the keys that must be played, not the sounds. Do you guys know if there is any plugin that can convert a scordatura into an actual microtonal score according to a specific tuning? Thank you in advance.

You mean the player plays his instrument as if it was regularly tuned but in the end the note produced differs from what is written ?

If so, I guess, that if you want a common detune for all the strings (e.g. F-C-G-D instead of G-D-A-E) you could manage this at the level of the staff property :
So here, if you write a A, it will sound as G.

(But you have only plain half notes, no microtonal here)

If you want to detune a the string level (e.g. G-D-A-E♭ instead of G-D-A-E), I don't see a way to do this.
Because MuseScore doesn't know on which string you are playing a certain ? Would it be on the 1st string and then it must be detuned, or on another string and then it must not be detuned. How could MuseScore know this ?
