Is adding VST support for future versions of MuseScore possible?
Hello! I've been using MuseScore as my primary music production software for the past two-odd years and as a composer I have to say that I love this program! Having first started notating in grade school using Finale Notepad 2012, I am much more familiar with notation software than with standard DAWs, which I find to be clunky and nearly impossible to use--and I really can't thank you enough for making such a powerful notation tool available free to the public!
That being said, I can't help but feel that MuseScore is missing out by only offering SoundFont and SFZ instrument support. Please don't misunderstand me; I love using them and am highly dependent on using them for the majority of my production process. However, on the odd occasion that I do need to use a VST instrument in my music, I have to work around MuseScore and jump through all these ridiculous hurdles to get the sound I want in Cakewalk--then I have to re-mix all of my MuseScore tracks as audio so that the levels, pan, &c. work with the audio from my DAW. It would be much more efficient if I could just load VST plugins directly to MuseScore.
All that being said, I'm not a software engineer; I'm a musician. I don't know if adding VST support for your applications would be possible, and if not, I understand. If, however, it's something you might be able to do, I would greatly appreciate you looking into it.
Thank you for reading! (^-^)/
