Variable volume for each note

• Jan 9, 2022 - 01:56

I use the computer QWERTY keyboard, with the > key and < key features of MuseScore, going note by note (step function), but with a new sophisticated amazing breath musical instrument. It works great, but I would like to enhance the playing by varying the volume of the note being played, to make it more “natural”. In other words: How can I vary the volume of a note CONTINUOUSLY (and not only in the full score)? In the "note by note mode", say you are playing a flute and you want to play each note with a varying volume as you blow stronger or weaker: How can you do that with MuseScore software? Thank you, Julian,

You should select one of the Expr. sounds in the Mixer (F10).

For the Flute, use the Flute Expr. sound, which allows MuseScore to play back a single note with a gradually increasing or decreasing volume. For full control, you have to use dim. or cresc. hairpins in conjunction with a starting dynamic and an ending dynamic for the note(s), as demonstrated in jeetee's example score.
