Orchestral soundfont with articulations

• Mar 18, 2019 - 20:01

I would like to share with you a collection of orchestral soundfonts that I optimized to be used in Musescore.
All of them are freely distributed online. The difference is that for each instrument I created 3 presets with different attack time. The reason for this is that you can use system text or staff text to make quick program changes between presets of the same instrument with different attack time to create a legato effect that will be heard and played by Musescore. To make it possible I also uploaded a customized version of instruments.xml, that has a custom section, where you can add as a new instrument, treble, alto or bass clefs, each one allowing for up to 10 different presets at the same staff. Staff text and system text may be copied and pasted and made invisible, so you don't need to build their program at each new phrasing nor fill your score with visible text instructions.


More about staff text and system text, please read Musescore manual. If you like the idea but not some of the presets in this soundfont, please use Polyphone to modify it or to do the same with your own instruments.

Hope you enjoy.
