Request for SoundFont support on MuseScore.com
Although generally enamored with the capabilities of the MuseScore.com site, I have suggestion that would greatly enhance my ability to promote non-traditional music scores (e.g., English Handbell compositions). As you know, the standard SoundFont (I believe it is the “TimGM6mb.sf2” SoundFont) lacks support for English Handbell samples. As a result, other composers have resorted to third-party SoundFonts such as the "HandBells.sf2" SoundFont by FMJ Software (http://www.fmjsoft.com/siframe.html).
For me, the issue becomes one of audio reproducibility once the score is uploaded to the MuseScore.com site. As you can imagine, indices used within the "HandBells.sf2" SoundFont rarely map directly to indices used within the “TimGM6mb.sf2” SoundFont (used by MuseScore.com) producing at best, awkward representations of the composers intent.
My work-around has been to immediately construct a VideoScore using MIDI produced from the "HandBells.sf2" SoundFont, convert and publish the resultant Media File to “YouTube.com”, all in hopes that the listener would choose the VideoScore over the integrated MuseScore.com player.
My suggestion would be to allow SoundFonts used in the composition to be retained within the score to allow accurate playback on MuseScore.com.
