Euphonium sound does not exist, keep on tuba or change to trombone?
Euphonium does not have its own sound. Currently it uses the tuba sound, which causes an issue with the upper playback range, as per #324917: Euphonium uses tuba sound by default, no playback above C5. I list some manual workarounds .The most viable alternative would be to use trombone, which has the higher range. This leaves us with two options:
(a) leave on tuba: users should be mostly happy with the sound, but frustrated with the missing notes in the upper range (not sure what the frequency is of users using this high-end of the instrument). Users can just change it to use trombone manually if (any) playback at the upper range is more important than fidelity in the rest of the range.
(b) change to trombone: annoy/frustrate users happy with the current sound. Users can just change to tuba manually if sound quality is more imporant and upper range playback (above c5) is not require.
The actual fix would be to have a proper euphonium sound (which deserves its own issue, will post when I have created it).
How euphonium players and other interested parties feel about this? If there is not a strong enough vote one way or the other, I suggest we keep the status quo (with the issue and workaround widely known, or discoverable).
