Are there any violin soundfonts where there is/are No Vibrato samples?

Hey guys. I've had Musescore for a few months already and already know fairly well how to use it. I've never had any experience with sheet music, but as my progress is fast, I'm starting to get serious and really want to get onto making original compositions. I know Musescore's purpose isn't playback, but it does it really awesomely and I don't feel comfortable with using software that doesn't have much to do with sheets. So right now a few obstacles are tripping me.

I made a good melody on my piano a month ago and kept on improving it and improving it. Changed the chords, a ton of notes, eventually turned the beginning section into a flute and the high notes after that into a violin. It became just mesmerizing, except one thing doesn't satisfy me... The violin has a fairly strong vibrato, and it just doesn't work out properly for the piece. I've looked for soundfonts with a NV violin, but they never specify and I didn't come across any. I'm looking for such.

Am I demanding too much from Musescore? If so, what should I consider doing instead? Is there a soundfont that will satisfy my needs? (If there is one specially for violins/strings I would be really pleased)

Thanks in advance.


As far as the vibrato is concerned, that is not MuseScore specifically doing, which you sort of alluded to. I don't know of a violin sound font with no vibrato, you'll just have to look for one on the web. There are plenty of free ones out there. Perhaps someone knows of one, and will answer here.

Bumping this because I need help with it too, and can't find anything after a couple hours of research. The one already in the comments doesn't work well enough.
