The Concert Band Soundfont

• May 21, 2017 - 23:42

I have created a soundfont that is just an overlay for your Concert Band. Meaning that Not all MIDI sounds are there, just the ones that are commonly used in a Concert Band.

Try it Out:


I was trying to use the trumpet and I thought it sounded great with short notes. With long notes however, it has a diminuendo effect which makes the other instruments louder. Any way to fix that?

This is a great soundfont, I love it! I would suggest however adding a tambourine and cabasa. But everything else is spot on!

So I know this is years later, but I have recently begun using this soundfont for my pieces and I absolutely love the sounds! I've run into a small problem that most of the instrument playback does not properly crescendo or decrescendo when written. Has this been fixed or is there a way I can fix it on my end?

If you mean, within a single note, then probably you need to change the CC method in View / Synthesizer / Dynamics - the default settings typically only works with the default soundfonts provided by MuseScore. You may have to experiment to find what works with this or any other third-party soundfont.
