Volume of MS basic electric guitar changed in MuseScore 4

• Oct 27, 2023 - 08:27

The volume of MS basic electric guitar saw a huge increase in MuseScore 4 compared to 3.6. I have to manually set it to about -6 dB in the mixer to match the loudness to that in 3.6. I wonder if the developers could tone it down somewhat. I'm also curious about what caused the change in the development of MuseScore 4.

I suspect certain other instruments' volume have changed too. For example, the piano doesn't sound as clear when accompanied by a drumset. But I'm not super sure about that. The electric guitar is just the most obvious.

Below is an 18-bar excerpt of my work rendered in 3.6.2 and 4.1.1 with scores and audios included. Listen yourself. The electric guitar, in mezzo-piano, is well laid back in the 3.6.2 rendering and it sounds about the same as 4.1.1 with the instrument toned down to -6 dB, whereas 4.1.1 using the default 0 dB sounds way different.
