orchestral score

• Oct 18, 2020 - 01:31

On playback, I can hear all instrument parts in the score except for Violin 1 and Violin 2 parts. Even when I increase the dynamics for these parts to forte, I still can barely hear the violin parts. When writing for small orchestra, I choose each part separately to add to the score and I am not aware that I have done anything differently when choosing the violin parts. Is there a way to fix the sound and increase the volume on the violin parts?


You would need to attach the score and tell us which soundfont you are using. There are plenty of ways the violin could be made softer.

Thank you for your quick reply. I am using the sound font that came with the program "Standard." I want to make the violin parts louder. I notice that when I click on individual notes in the part and also on playback, I can barely hear them. When I click on notes in other instrumental parts, like the flute part or other string parts: viola, cello, bass, I can clearly hear each note - no matter the dynamics. I noticed something odd: I was going to send you a page of the piece and when I played it back - I could hear the violins on the page that I copied - but not in the original. I am confused why I can hear the violins on the copy and not on the original. Any suggestions are helpful.
