"Ran about as well as a ballpoint pen that skips badly!"

I used 1.3 on a nine year old Celeron PC with 500mb/ram. The task of producing a 4.5 minute professional looking vocal solo with piano accompaniment proved daunting, to say the least. While the job eventually got done with beautiful results, numerous glitches, lockups and some crashes occurred along the way, and, in desperation, the final score formatting was done through screenshots and a third party graphics editor. This software has wonderful potential, and I am very thankful to the Musescore development team for its tremendous efforts and fair results. but at the present time, this software appears to have more bugs than an ant colony.

I've found problems such as this with other related music software. That makes me suspect that the glitches may be mostly related to the Windows XP (SP3) operating system. Has your development team considered doing a Windows build based upon JAVA? (I am an avid Jorgan user, a VTPO available from Sourceforge. As the name implies, Jorgan is based on JAVA. In spite of being very complicated software with a steep learning curve, Jorgan is very smooth, stable and usually glitch free.

Pros
  • Very professional looking final results
Cons
  • Eliminate the many glitches, lockups and crashes
