How to do single note crescendo

• Jun 10, 2019 - 21:46

I recently noticed that the new update added single note crescendos. However, it seems to me that there is no difference at all, so I was wondering whether there is a special setting for this type of crescendo.


To use it with your existing soundfonts, open the synthesizer and in the dynamics tab set Dynamics method: to CC events only (constant velocity) and CC to use: to CC11. DO NOT click To Expressive with these options and do not set sounds in the mixer to the ones that end espr.

If you want to use sounds that end in espr. using the MuseScore_General_HQ soundfont set Dynamics method to Default and CC method to CC2 and click Switch all patches to Expressive.

Look for a comprehensive "How to..." in the next day or two.

But to be clear: none of the above is necessary unless you wish to use a custom soundfont. With the default soundfont, everything works perfectly right out of the box. At least it does for instruments that are actually capable of this - a piano won't crescendo in the middle of note no matter how hard you try.
