Using Synthesizer

• Mar 22, 2019 - 00:41

How exactly do you use this tool? I have been trying to find FluidR3, but the only thing that comes is Musescore General sf3. I have been trying to find out how too add the reverse cymbal, but information on how to use the synthesizer will be useful. Thanks.


First of all, you have to have all the soundfont files you want to use with MuseScore in some specific folder in your Hard Disk Drive.

Second, you have to put the folder where you have all those soundfont files into the box called "SoundFonts", of the "Preferences" menu.

Then, you have to restart MuseScore.

Then you will be able to use any soundfont file you want with the MuseScore synthesizer.

MuseScore General is based on FluidR3 but with a number of corrections and improvements. Unless you have some special reason to revert to FluidR3 and are willing to live with the re-introudction of the problems fixed by MusScore General, I wouldn't recommend making the switch. I'm not aware of any difference between the two relevant to reverse cymbals though (I could be wrong of course). This is a standard GM sound and hence should be available ti any drumset if you define a note for it as described in the Handbook under "Drum notation".

That said, to add a soundfont, see the Handbook under "Soundfonts".
