General MIDI Sound Effects Family

• May 16, 2016 - 11:18

Looking at the Instruments menu, I see Woodwind, Free Reed, Brass, Pitched Percussion, Unpiched Percussion, Marching Percussion, Vocals, Keyboards, Electronic Instruments, Plucked Strings, and Strings -- but no "Sound Effects" (MIDI Program Change numbers 121 through 128).

Some of those sound effects sound pretty useful, but I can't see how to add them to a score.


Well, the sound effects are presukably to be played on some sort of instrument - a synthesizer, or a voice, or whatever. So, select an instrument, then to change the sound used in playback, use View / Mixer.
