We seem to have trapped one of the mods within the forum's code... and we're not sure how to get him out. Oh well, he'll figure it out!

Help Guides / Formatting in MuseScore & Exporting to Finale
« on: July 22, 2021, 01:27:04 AM »

This is a guide on one particular method of how to format a MuseScore sheet so as to try to minimize the amount of work required in Finale or Finale Notepad.
Why? Because MuseScore is awesome and Finale Notepad is not! So, let's try to maximize the amount of stuff we can do in the superior program and leave only necessary fixes to the inferior one. 8)

This guide will cover the following things:
  • A method of creating a new sheet to get all the information on the sheet
  • Applying a Style file to a new or pre-existing sheet
  • Useful formatting options in MuseScore
  • Exporting to MusicXML and post-export cleaning via MusicXML Cleaner
  • Importing into Finale/Finale Notepad, common final adjustments, and tips
For this guide, I will be using MuseScore v3.6.2 and Finale Notepad.
Different versions of MuseScore may have more or fewer issues than listed here. I'm also going to assume to know how to use MuseScore well enough (like how to add notes, articulations, slurs, etc.).
As for Finale, full Finale has tools to fix every and any issues, but Finale Notepad does not so I will be taking the lesser of the two here and cater the guide around Finale Notepad.

I am also going to avoid going to into gory details here. I go into more depth in the slides that I used for the presentation that motivated this guide. You can find the slides [here]. You should check them out!

Projects / cacabish's Colors Sheet
« on: July 20, 2021, 08:19:58 PM »
Here is first (and probably definitely only) sheet for the Colors project from the wonderful game, Bug Fables! :D
I'll try to keep the attached PDF file up-to-date with the .musx revisions, so that people can just look at that.

"Blessed Golden Lands"*
[PC] Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling

*The actual title of this piece is unclear. According to the composer's bandcamp, the title is just "Golden Lands", whereas according to the character you talk to in the game to set the music, it's called "Blessed Golden Lands".
I've chosen to use the latter on the logic that anyone playing the game and seeing the song title's there would be motivated to search for that and not just "Golden Lands". If you believe it should be the other title, do let me know!

I swear I don't only do Mario Party sheets.
This is the main theme for one of the boards of the game. It's a nice spooky waltz and definitely has that Halloween flair. Enjoy!

Welcome to cacabish's Arrangements Thread!

Hello! Here you can find all my arrangements of various pieces of video game music!
Please note that I am still very much a novice when it comes to arranging, thus, I am always looking for ways to improve and grow, so, if you have suggestions or comments any for the pieces below, feel free to let me know!


Black TitleOn-site. The corresponding links will go to the on-site files. Enjoy!
Green TitleNot on-site yet. These pieces are almost ready for submission and may just need small revisions. I'd appreciate second opinions and feedback on these particular pieces!
Yellow TitleIn submissions. Check the submissions thread for the posted piece!
Orange TitleNot on-site yet. These pieces have a ways to go before submission and likely need major revisions or reworking. Play and examine at your own risk!
Strikethrough TitleObsolete or replaced. May these sheets rest in peace.

Note: Sheets are organized first by series alphabetically, then by game alphabetically, then by title alphabetically. One-off or uncategorized pieces will be at the bottom under "Miscellaneous".

Now, without further ado, enjoy the music!
