Am I on the right track with sound fonts?
I'm a jazz drummer, trying to find a sound for sustained sweeping brushes like in attached sample. No sound font offers this. I've looked at editing one of default SF2/SF3 sound fonts to replace just one instrument globally, but found common editors like Polypnone or Vienna/Viena VERY confusing to use.
Anyway, the idea is to replace SF2/3 the MuseScore comes with with an SFZ type of sound font because all the sound samples (.wav files) are exposed and available for replacement by my own I can easily record.
I wish MuseScore would come with at least one default .SFZ sound font, but it doesn't. My question is:
Is it really as simple to globally replace how a given instrument (brushes in my case) sounds as just replace a .wav file? If so, is there any downloadable generic ready-to-use in MuseScore SFZ sound font similar to default MuseScore_General.sf3 the program comes with? If not, is there a more-less straight forward way to convert one into another (sf2 or sf3 to sfz) so all existing scores I created still sound the same after global replacement of sound font type?
Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
