Changing velocity explicitly in Musescore 4
I've got a piano score written out with dynamics included that sounds a little over-bashy as-is. I could go through and change each of the dynamic markings to one or two slots quieter (mf-p, f-mp, ff-mf etc) but that would be time-consuming and result in a score that doesn't look the way I want people to read it. To get across the hurdle of the piano being a little more heavy-handed than I was hoping in the new playback engine, I thought I'd just select the whole score and change the velocity of every note by 16 points or so.
Is this the correct way to achieve this, and the fact that it is having no effect simply a bug that needs reporting (we are still in beta, after all) or is this a feature of the new playback engine where it ignores anything except for what's explicitly written on the page and I need to find another way of telling it to hold back a little?
On a related note - I used to add staff text to set different voices within a score to different soundfonts by setting them to specific midi channels - but now I can't seem to do that anymore, and it doesn't seem to matter as the new playback engine doesn't seem to offer this granular control. Again, something I might have used for pizz. and the like, and I believe the new engine just sees the instructions and interprets them... (though I use it for organ manual registrations too).
