mid-staff instrument changes keep adding mixer entries
I use sfz fonts.
When I change instrument mid-staff, a new instrument is added to the mixer.
There seems no way to revert to the previous instrument without adding a new entry to the mixer.
Is it possible to toggle 2 instruments mid-staff without having to deal with dozens of mixer entries?
The reason for me changing instruments mid-staff is a workaround for limited dynamic range of sfz fonts.
For example I make violin-loud and violin-quiet with different volume settings in the mixer. This strategy expands the dynamic range of sfz fonts. However, toggling 2 instruments mid-staff creates dozens of indistinguishable mixer entries which is a major annoyance.
Having 2 instruments on different staffs allows "toggle", but then the orchestral score looks monstrous...
I consider editing sfz files to allow different volume settings, but cannot find documentation.
Can you help?
