Search Bar in 'Sound' dropdown in Mixer

• Apr 14, 2021 - 13:15

Anyone who has played around with soundfonts has struggled to try and find the right one for the instrument they are writing for in the the MASSIVE dropdown that comes up in the 'Sound' category in the mixer. Having a search tool to filter out all the unwanted sounds in that dropdown would make life a lot less finnicky when trying to find the right sounds for instruments. The issue only amplifies when you are trying to replace the sounds for a whole orchestral or band score as well.


Not sure if you're aware of this, but with the dropdown open you can type the first letter(s) of the sound you're looking for and the list will scroll to the next entry starting with this letter.

The Mixer and Sound system is one of the things that's being entirely revised for MuseScore 4; so we can expect this usability point to be addressed then.
