How to do a "wooosh" sound in MuseScore, either through a soundfont or otherwise

This is what I'm talking about:
from 0:20 to 0:25, that woosh in the background, how do i do that


MuseScore doesn't include that sound effect in the soundfont that comes with it. You can try to approximate it with percussion rolls, but it will not be close to what you want. You can try this for whoosh, although I have heard some of these and I don't think it's what you want as well:…

But you get the idea: there are online sources for free and paid sound effects that you can download. If it's not in soundfont format, then I guess you'll have to create your own soundfont. You can use free software like Polyphone to build a soundfont using the downloaded samples. Then you would use Synthesizer in MuseScore to add the soundfont and so on. MuseScore help has details on how to do this and use it in your scores.
