Sound Effects from Flute?

• Oct 2, 2018 - 16:26

A couple of years ago I added a machine gun sound to one of my compositions using a stave to which a Flute is assigned. For the life of me, I can't figure out how I got the flute to sound like a machine gun -- though I do remember that there were many other sound effect choices to go with that one --and I can't seem to find any posts or documentation to remind me.

Can one of you help me out?

Excuse me, how did you add this "gun shot" or any other effect to musescore. I am trying to add a small waterfall mp3 and I am clueless how to do this. Please explain. Thank you.

The sound I want doesn't exist on Musecore. I want to upload it to Musecore. Do you know how to upload to Musecore? Do you know how to change an mp3 to a correct file format for such an upload and then where to upload the file to the proper place. This is the problem. Do you now understand the problem?

Listen, you guys are technically way ahead of me. How do I convert an mp3 file into a sf3 file3. Once I do that I think I'll figure out how to load it onto Musescore. I just downloaded Polyphone, but that dosen't seem to be any sort of help. Anyone want to try and handhold me here?

There is not a straightforward "convert to mp3 to sf2" command any more than there is one to for example, to a Microsoft Word file and convert it to a video of the text being displayed while someone reads it. But it is indeed possible to accomplish the job, and I understand that Polyphone is a program that can help. Probably better to ask for help on their forums, though.
