SoundFonts Issue 1 & question 2
First, with the workaround via Parts (see my other posts) I was able to get all instruments on my test score with 5 instruments.
Unison.SF sounded very balanced between the instruments.
MagicSFVer2 sounded very nice (I like it, thanks to Dennis Deutschmann and whoever that made it happen.) but not balanced -- out of the 5 instruments, the violin sound was surprisingly loud. I end up changing its volume using the mixer. All other instruments use default (say 100 out of 127 full scale). But violin I have to reduce to say 20 out of 127.
1. I'd imagine the virtual sound volume would be balanced already. In other setups I've used, all the sounds tend to be balanced roughly. Is there some special things in terms of installation that need be done? All I did was edit preferences | IO and pick the SF file.
2. The developer of MagicSFVer2 suggest in its user note: start the creative "audio hq", click at the "Import Environment"-button and choose the "_Cathedral.ea2"-file. How can I do the equivalent of this in MuseScore? (Other than manually changing the reverb for all instruments to ~60%.)
These will be the primary SF I use, unless I hear suggestions from others. Unison uses a smaller memory footprint which I like, and MagicSF only about 30MB more with better sound, if I get the issues resolved... Thanks in advance for your help!
