Changing instrumentation between verses

Scenario: A hymn with multiple verses. As an organist I would change registrations (instrumentation) between verses, say from a simple registration on the first verse to a full organ (tutti) on the last verse. Is it possible on the playback to indicate on the score to change instrumentation, or is the selected voicing static throughout?

I have installed the jeux14.sfc soundfont where there are a number of selections for organ registrations. Of course, the TimGM6mb font also has several choices (organ1, organ2, etc). I would like to hear the playback mimic real-world application.


In the upcoming 2.0 release, this can be done directly. In current releases, you do it by creating a dcore that contains all the instrumens you want, then use the Hide Empty Staves option.

And questions should be asked in the forum. If it turns out based on discussion in the forum that there really is no feature to do what you want - including no feature already implemented for an upcoming release - then submitting a feature request to the tracker is appropriate.
