Installing new soundfonts overrides existing sound settings, etc.
I've been experimenting with installing new soundfonts lately, and have come across a few issues, as follows:
When installing a new soundfont to an existing score (using the "Synthesizer" "Fluid" tab), every single instrument in the score gets reset to the new soundfont. I must go into the mixer and reset every patch to the appropriate instrument, even the child parts (e.g. pizzicatto and tremolo for strings). This is a major drag for orchestral scores. Am I doing something wrong?
Once I've got the score all set with the new soundfonts where I want them (utilizing Musescore 3 on my computer) and everything is sounding great, I then upload the score to Musescore on line. However, when played back online, the new soundfonts have disappeared, and the part instrument goes to some default that usually sounds awful. Am I doing something wrong, or is it a case of Musescore online simply being unable to recognize/incorporate new soundfonts? If the latter, I suppose I could create a youtube mp3 and synchronize the score, but that's a lot of extra work.
I have not yet successfully managed to import a full library of sounds (an sfz file). I've had to resort to installing one sound font at a time, which is rather tedious. Is there a way to install en masse that I just haven't figured out yet?
Thanks for any help or advice you can provide!
