Musescore HQ Soundfont in mono: why?
I have tried the current Musescore Soundfont HQ and as far as I can see all the instruments are in mono. Checking with polyphone I found that all the pan information seems to be set to "center" even for drum sets.
I assume this is intentional and it is quite okay for positioning most instruments as points within the stereo spectrum.
But at least drums should have some some stereo width, because their sound sources (for typical drum sets) do not coincide. And it is easy to decrease the stereo width of some stereo signal later on by applying crossfeed, but it is almost impossible to spread a mono signal.
Am I missing something important?
