New Clarinet for MuseScore 2
I am nearing the end of entering loop information into the new clarinet I am working on for MuseScore 2 using samples from the University of Iowa.
At this point I need the considered view of the community.
Should the Clarinet only produce notes in the standard range for the instrument?
Or should the range be extended throughout the MIDI keyboard range?
You need to bear in mind that notes outside the official range will have to be timestretched in the lower octaves of the MIDI keyboard, with consequent deterioration in speech and timbre.
The other way forward would be to use Bass Clarinet samples to fill out the bottom of the MIDI range - some of the samples would still need to be timestretched to fill the lowest 3 octaves but sound quality would be better down to C2.
Let me know your thoughts.
