Orchestral Score Instrument Playback Problems
So, I am often working on orchestral pieces of 15 – 20 instruments, and I constantly have the following issue: I will write a part for, say, an English Horn, and the trumpet will also wind up playing that melody. Or for a flute, and the Viola pizzicato is playing with it. It happens all the time with a bunch of instruments. It's usually a string or brass instrument making noise on a woodwind part. I know this is not a problem with my mixer patches—I've checked that—and I also know that this problem is unique to my copy of the software, because I have MuseScore on my work computer and the same score doesn't do that there. This makes it difficult to compose and arrange because I rely on my ear a lot to write stuff and I'm hearing an instrument playing a part it's not supposed to be playing. Any advice on how to get this to stop?
