instrument no longer available after Musescore Studio update

• May 10, 2024 - 12:21

Yesterday I updated Musescore to the latest version (Musescore Studio) and since then it has not been possible to use certain instruments. They do appear in the list of available options, however, if you select them you get the instrument ‘piano’.
This is very annoying because, for example, I often used the instrument ‘choir synthesiser’ (choir synth pad (general midi programme 92)).
Can you please indicate how I can activate/use this instrument again?

thank you in advance for your response

It does seem that in 4.3, the sound defaults to piano when the Auto selection is used with MS Basic.
You can manually select the correct sound in the Mixer. Open the Mixer, click the down arrow next to the MS Basic text (appears when you hover the mouse over it) and select the Space Voice sound.
