Individual instrument tuning

• Nov 28, 2023 - 09:36

I am wondering if there are parameters for individual instrument tuning which can be unset easily. If that is the case, is it possible to reset them, or alternatively tune each instrument in a group.

It is possible that something may have changed in my system because of installing some external VSTs - though I am not really sure of that.

Is. there any way to find out what the tuning settings are for each instrument used in an ensemble.

I am particularly interested in two ensembles - one a standard string quartet, while the other is a brass quartet.

I have been trying to work out what has happened to the tuning - and now I am referring to the tuning of Muse Score instruments, rather than any external VST. The tuning issues I have noted have happened since downloading and installing the Cremona quartet library from Native Instruments, but that could be irrelevant - unless that library, when used, changes any internal parameters within MU4.

One of two pieces I am testing now has a top line instrument which is noticeably flat - which may or may not be due to these other factors. Is it possible to tune instruments in an ensemble individually, and as I suggested at the top, also discover exactly what the tuning for each instrumental line is set to?


I am only familiar with MuS 3.6.2 and there is a way to change the tuning of each note in cent. This is probably also possible in MuS 4 - see the properties of a selected note.
If these notes were previously changed, you can select all of them and set them to offset zero. However, this would have been changed deliberately.
In MuS 3 it is possible to set the basic pitch of note A in the synthesiser to a value other than 440 Hz. As far as I know, this is not (yet) possible in MuS 4.

On the other hand, it has been reported about MuS 4 that the tuning can be wrong if the sample rate of the sound card is not set to 44.1kHz. Check this first, it is a computer setting.
