Create split of all MS Basic sounds into individual soundfonts
A radically simple idea, maybe it's come up before, but I haven't seen it:
Because MU4 doesn't let you select a sound within a soundfont, we're constantly advising people about workarounds like splitting a soundfont into individual sounds.
So, why don't we just do this ourselves, for MS Basic? Or for any other community-maintained soundfonts?
Any technical reason why MS Basic couldn't be distributed - unofficially of course - as a ZIP file containing the individual sounds themselves? Then you'd just download and extract into your soundfonts folder, and you're good to go.
Of course, it's not completely ideal, and eventually we all expect MuseScore 4.x will eventually support selecting sounds within soundfonts, but for now, seems this would do quite well for many use cases.
I could imagine the ZIP containing separate folders for the different families, maybe also two versions where one set just uses names and thus sorts alphabetically and another that pretends the patch number so they sort logically instead.
I would have to assume someone who knows there way around a soundfont editor could pull this off in a free evening. I gather there are even tools that can do this in one shot.
