SalamanderGrandPianoV3_44.1khz16bit wobbeling sound after a few measures

• Apr 4, 2019 - 20:37

I really like the sound of the SalamanderGrandPianoV3_44.1khz16bit soundfont sfz (>1 GB). I used it for the brass arrangements that I'm writing, because I haven't found realistic brass sounds so far.
But with the current Musescore 2.x and 3.x some of my arrangements do sound really bad after a few measures. This seems to be a strange problem because other arrangements don't show this effect.
With the light version of the Salamander soundfont sf2 (25 MB) it always sounds clean.

Is there anything I might have done wrong to cause this? Can you confirm my finding with the attached score, where the wobbeling occurs after measure 5? SalamanderGrandPianoV3_44.1khz16bit is the only sfz soundfont that I use - maybe this is the reason. I remember times wit early versions of Musescore 2.x when I did not hear those effects. It had been different scores, I played then, though.

OS: Windows 10 (10.0), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit):, revision: 58dd23d on Intel I5 6400 2.7 GHz 8 GB

Here is some decent brass sounds

As for the piano sound in question, it has three round-robin samples for each note, but if there are four or more in a row it doesn't reuse them properly. For some reason adding pedal lines always fixes this, but it is tedious to do and can produce undesirable results. I don't know what to do about this. I do not even know the problem is in the Zerberus player or the sfz. I am sorry I could not be more help.
