Guitar palm-mute

• Jul 21, 2019 - 00:48

Could guitar/palm-muted playback be achieved using a similar method to trumpet muting, bass guitar technique -switching, and synthesizer voicing? If the 'Palm Muted Guitar' patch were added to guitars as another channel, one could then use text to switch between muted and open strings, rather than having to add numerous instrument switches or a whole other dedicated palm-mute playback staff.


It's possible with a non-GM standard sound font and an instrument defined to have a channel for that option. There was talk at one point of adding several channels to the guitar for this purpose and at least one channel to other instruments but the idea died.
