Notes above C5 do not sound on the following instruments: Bugle, Soprano Bugle, Alto Bugle and Mellophone Bugle.


Comments

This is caused by the bugle instruments using the Tuba preset in the SoundFont. I don't think Frank Wen expected people to use tuba notes above C5 when he designed the preset. I have fixed this by extending the upper sample to cover the full key range above C5, and the fix will be available in version 0.2.1 of the SoundFont. Until then, you can work around this issue by opening the mixer and assigning a different preset to the staff, such as Trumpet.
