Publish to

    If you are not already logged in to, or you do not have an account, you will need to login.

    Dialog for Login

    You will be asked if the score should be Public, Unlisted, or Private.
    * Public scores are visible to everyone on the internet.

    Visibility in score manager

    Scores published only at are marked with a "cloud" symbol in the Musescore score manager.
    MuseScore also keeps local copies on your computer (in a folder called Cloud Scores in your user “MuseScore 4” folder), so you can work on them even without an active internet connection.

    Manage generation of mp3 during upload

    When saving online Musescore creates an MP3 file of the audio of your score. Depending on the score length, and number of instruments in the score, this might take a long time. To control when this happens:

    1. From the menu, choose Edit→Preferences...→Cloud
    2. Under "Generate MP3 audio for private cloud scores" choose Never, Always, or Every (X saves)


      Each time you press Save, only the score itself will be uploaded to Online playback will use the MS Basic soundfont.


      Each time you press Save, MuseScore will generate an .mp3 file to upload together with your score. Score playback on will sound the same as it does in your desktop app (including audio from the Muse Sounds library, if installed, or any VST instruments and effects you’ve added)

      Every x saves

      MuseScore will only generate and upload an .mp3 file at a save interval you specify.

    3. If you chose "Every X saves" choose the number of saves
