Is there a way to pluck bowed strings?

• Oct 20, 2021 - 01:47

Using staccatos and staccatissimos are short bowed sounds, not plucked sounds. I tried to used plucked strings, but nothing sounded close enough to a violin to use it and feel it was right.

I haven't been able to find a sound file for this online. Adding a percussion line to plucked violin strings would come closest, I believe.

Thanks, everyone. <3

You probably want pizzicato, we'll possible with MuseScore. Just use the corresponding text from the text palette and apply it to a violin staff.
