QuickScore Elite How To

How to create an MP3 file

Getting Started   Tutorials  Manual  MIDI and Audio

After you have completed your score in QuickScore, choose Save As from the File menu.

The Save as file dialog appears. From the Save as type dropdown list box choose MP3. Set the name of your wave file in the File name list box.

If you have chosen to show the Saving Audio Files dialog when saving audio files, the Saving Audio Files dialog will appear. If you don't see the Saving Audio Files dialog, and you want to change the way audio is saved, you can access it by clicking on Saving Audio Files at the top of the Audio Setup dialog, available under the Options menu.

Under Windows XP the Saving Audio Files dialog lets you choose between using QuickScore's Audio Mixer and using Windows MCI Audio. If you choose Windows MCI Audio, you must select the MCI device and input line for saving audio.

You may have several audio mixers installed on your system. If you have more than one, you can choose the one you want QuickScore Elite to use by selecting it from the Device dropdown list box.

Choose the input line for saving audio files in the Input Line dropdown list box. This is the audio line that the system uses when QuickScore Elite is playing. Ordinarily Stereo Mix or something similar is a good choice for this audio line.

Under Windows Vista and later versions of Windows, the Saving Audio Files dialog lets you choose between using QuickScore's Audio Mixer and using Windows WASAPI Audio mixer.

If you choose to use QuickScore's Audio Mixer, you must be using VST or ReWire instruments as sound sources.

When finished, click OK.

Your score will play from start to finish. When finished your score has been saved as a MP3 file with the name you chose in the Save As file dialog.
