Looking for the HQ Female Screaming soundfont

• Dec 2, 2021 - 15:53

At one time when I downloaded the soundfonts for MS there was a sf for a high pitched female scream. Over the months when I've updated my MS the sf has disappeared. I was wondering if there was a high quality version of that?

I've looked a few places like samplefocus.com but there's literally nothing as good as the one that came with MS.


There is no scream in the original General MIDI standard, so I am not so sure any soundfont actually shipped with MuseScore ever included such a sound. But there is one the GM2 spec, in bank 2, sound 127. Not sure you'd you'd access those sounds in MuseScore - normally only the basic bank 1 sounds are available. But anyhow, maybe that's a clue as to where to look.

As Marc said, there is not Scream sound in the original General MIDI standard.
But, there are more than one soundfont files (for example: Timbres Of Heaven) which have the scream sound. Unfortunately, there is not some kind of "standard" about which bank and patch number to those sounds. So, you have to look for it "by hand".

Hey Jo
There are a few screams that come up while doing searches through my soundfonts. None are what I originally had unfortunately. I MIGHT have gotten a soundfont from off site but it's been years since I would have downloaded it. I could go through the soundfonts that are stored here and through trial and error come across it. Huge investment in time though.

I think I'm just gonna have to take the hit on this and walk away. A shame because it was perfect for a project I'm working on.

Thanks for chiming in.
