Wikipedia:

MuseScore est un éditeur de partitions musicales WYSIWYG complet pour Linux, Windows et Mac OS X. C'est un logiciel libre, publié sous licence GNU GPL.

Fonctionnalités

MuseScore supporte la lecture audio de la partition ainsi que l'import et l'export de fichiers dans différents formats, dont MusicXML et MIDI standard, ainsi que le rendu audio de la musique avec des fontes sonores.

Le programme comporte une interface qui permet la saisie des notes via le dispositif de pointage (souris ou autre), des raccourcis clavier, ou bien une entrée MIDI, de la même façon que les éditeurs de partitions commerciaux populaires, comme Finale et Sibelius. La notation pour batterie et percussions, et la notation des doigtés sont également supportée. L'impression est possible directement depuis le programme.

Il bénéficie d’une vaste communauté d’utilisateurs très actifs qui partagent gratuitement, notamment sur le site du logiciel, de nombreuses partitions et font profiter les nouveaux venus de leur expérience.

La partition des Variations Goldberg de Johann Sebastian Bach du projet Open Goldberg Variations a été conçue sur MuseScore.

Formats supportés

MuseScore peut importer un grand nombre de formats différents, en particulier le MIDI et MusicXML, ainsi que le format de capella (cap) et de Band-in-a-Box (en). Il peut générer la partition en PDF, SVG ou PNG, et peut même exporter la partition dans un fichier compatible avec Lilypond que l'on peut, par la suite, modifier pour un rendu encore meilleur.

Wikipedia:

MuseScore is a scorewriter for Windows, macOS, and Linux, comparable to Finale and Sibelius, supporting a wide variety of file formats and input methods. It is released as free and open-source software under the GNU General Public License. MuseScore is accompanied by a freemium mobile score viewer and playback app, and an online score sharing platform. The makers of MuseScore claim that it is the world's most popular notation software.

History

MuseScore was originally created as a fork of the MusE sequencer's codebase. At that time, MusE included notation capabilities and in 2002, Werner Schweer, one of the MusE developers, decided to remove notation support from MusE and fork the code into a stand-alone notation program.

The musescore.org website was created in 2008, and quickly showed a rapidly rising number of MuseScore downloads. By December 2008, the download rate was up to 15,000 per month.

Version 0.9.5 was released in August 2009. By October 2009, MuseScore had been downloaded more than one thousand times per day. By the fourth quarter of 2010, MuseScore was being downloaded 80,000 times per month.

At the end of 2013, the project moved from SourceForge to GitHub, and continuous download statistics have not been publicly available since then, but in March 2015 a press release stated that MuseScore had been downloaded over eight million times, and in December 2016 the project stated that version 2.0.3 had been downloaded 1.9 million times in the nine months since its release.

In 2018, the MuseScore company was acquired by Ultimate Guitar, which added full-time paid developers to the open source team.

Features

MuseScore's main purpose is the creation of high-quality engraved musical scores in a "What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get" environment. It supports unlimited staves, linked parts and part extraction, tablature, MIDI input and output, percussion notation, cross-staff beaming, automatic transposition, lyrics (multiple verses), fretboard diagrams, and in general everything commonly used in sheet music. Style options to change the appearance and layout are available, and style sheets can be saved and applied to other scores. There are pre-defined templates for many types of ensembles. Functionality can be extended by making use of the many freely available plugins.

MuseScore can also play back scores through the built-in sequencer and SoundFont sample library. Multiple SoundFonts can be loaded into MuseScore's synthesizer. It includes a mixer to mute, solo, or adjust the volume of individual parts, and chorus, reverb and other effects are supported during playback. MIDI output to external devices and software synthesizers is also possible.

Supported file formats

MuseScore can import and export to many formats, though some are export only (visual representations and audio) and some are import only (native files from some other music notation programs).

MuseScore's native file formats are .mscz, a compressed file containing the score and other media, and .mscx, which is XML data that can be found in .mscz files. The .mscz format is usually preferred, as it uses less space and can support images.

MuseScore also can import and export both compressed (.mxl) and uncompressed (.xml) MusicXML files, which allows a score to be opened up in other music notation programs (including Sibelius and Finale). It can also import and export MIDI (.mid, .midi, and .kar), which is supported by many other programs (such as Synthesia), although since MIDI is not designed for sheet music, most score notations are lost.

MuseScore can also import certain other music software's native formats, including Band-in-a-Box (.mgu and .sgu), Bagpipe Music Writer (.bww), Guitar Pro (.gtp, .gp3, .gp4, .gp5, and .gpx), Capella (must be version 2000 (3.0) or later; .cap and .capx) and Overture formats. It can also import MuseData (.md), which has been superseded by MusicXML.

Audio can be exported to WAV, FLAC, MP3, and OGG files, and graphical representations of scores can also be exported to PDF, SVG, and PNG formats, and/or printed directly.

Online score sharing

The Save Online feature allows MuseScore users to publish and share their music online through MuseScore.com. The service allows paying subscribers to share unlimited scores. Free accounts are also available, but these accounts were limited to the five most recently uploaded scores being visible. However, on 19 February 2020, MuseScore posted on their forums stating that everyone can upload unlimited scores, even if one is not a paying subscriber. Paying subscribers still have access to other features that free accounts do not, like Track setup, and non-paying subscribers no longer have the ability to download music sheets. The MuseScore Start Center displays featured scores from the website.

MuseScore.com allows playback of a score in any browser supporting the HTML5 audio tag. A score can also be linked to YouTube, so that one may follow the sheet music while watching a video featuring that score.

The MuseScore company, now a part of Ultimate Guitar, uses income from the commercial sheet music sharing service to support the development of the free notation software.

Optical Music Recognition

MuseScore includes an optical music recognition feature which can convert PDFs to the native MuseScore file format, .mscz. This feature is web-based and uses the open source Audiveris project as a back-end.

Mobile player

Since May 2014 MuseScore has mobile apps available for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire which tie into the MuseScore score sharing site. The app can play scores, and allows changing of transposition and part extraction, but does not allow creating or editing scores.

Portable application

MuseScore also runs as a PortableApps.com portable application. It can be installed onto a regular hard disk drive or stored on a removable storage device such as a CD, USB flash drive or flash card, so that it can be run on any compatible Windows computer system. The latest version of MuseScore Portable is v2.3.2.
