Each year in October there is a marathon in our town of St. George, Utah and people come from all over the world to participate. We live very close to the finish line and we love to watch the marathon runners come in, always very exhausted. This peice tries to capture the steady running, the challenges when the going gets tough, and then the faster sprint right to the end of the race. Sometimes life seems like a marathon when the going gets tough and it's important to just "keep running".

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
