MuseScore 4 Soundfonts

• Dec 16, 2022 - 22:12

How do I choose soundfont instruments in MS4? In MS3, this could be done by selecting the soundfont with F12 & then choosing the sound/instrument/voice in the Mixer. With MS4, the option to choose the soundfont was moved to the Mixer, but I don't see the option to change the actual sounds in either the Mixer or the Instruments panel. I have voice names like Music Box, Pipe Organ, String Section, & LD-AcidSQneutral, including a few I named myself in a custom soundfont. Is there any way to select these instruments that I've been missing or do I have to edit everything in Polyphone to be able to use the sounds?

I would like to know this answer too. odconstant, your reply doesn't answer the question.
In MuseScore 3, we could open the soundfont and then pick instrument sounds from that font, like Music Box or Telephone or Bass Pad 3. This option doesn't seem to exist in MuseScore 4, not that I can find. There is no instrument for Music Box so I can't get that sound on my score.

The option to select a sound from within a soundfont will be restored in one of the next updates.
As a workaround you could use the free Sforzando or Sfizz VSTs, which in turn allow you to load a soundfont and select a patch within them.
