comment What is the cost of ISRC Codes?
When posting such a question, in general, it's helpful for you to identify what an acronym such as "ISRC" means, and to indicate what country you live in. People who post on this site live all over the world, so questions particular to only one nation are not considered on-topic. Furthermore, we only deal with questions regarding learning to play a musical instrument, and how to perform live on an instrument (or voice). Your question has nothing to do with the subjects that we address on this site.

It has nothing to do with musical practice and performance.

comment How do you increase the default volume of MuseScore?
Why not post your own separate question, for instance, "How can I replace the default General MIDI instrument in Windows with something better?" But you should not post it on this StackExchange site. That would be off-topic. Try the Audio-Video Production stack at avp.stackexchange.com/?as=1

comment How do you increase the default volume of MuseScore?
When I did a Google search, I learned that many users on Windows have different suggestions for replacing the Microsoft General MIDI instrument with another freeware or inexpensive sound font or other kind of virtual instrument. With the info I've provided you should be able to search for a better alternative to get better-quality sounds.

comment What instrument is this and why is it held so strangely and played?
Also note that the Baroque trumpet is usually tuned to A = 415, which is a half-step lower than the modern A = 440. Thus it sounds to your ear like the trumpet is playing in the key of D-flat and not D-natural.

comment What instrument is this and why is it held so strangely and played?
The authentic Baroque trumpet, or natural horn, has no valves and no vents. Therefore it is possible to play it with one hand. It can only play the pitches of the D major scale; because there are no valves or vents, it is not possible to use the instrument to play additional notes or keys outside of D major.

comment Is metallic cogwheel a part of a guitar?
I believe you are referring to a nut which screws onto a bolt, rather than a cogwheel. There is a type of thin nut with a notched border that superficially resembles a cogwheel, but it is not.

comment What is the time signature and tempo (let's say for the intro) of Yes' Close to The Edge song?
Orlando, Florida circa 1995 on the "Talk" tour. Another fan presented them with a sheet music piano-vocal arrangement of "Close to the Edge" that had been printed in the 70s and asked for them to autograph it. They seemed unaware that such a thing had ever been published.
