Dynamics do not work on treble and bass clefs separately in some soundfonts
I use the default MuseScore soundfont extensively in my songs, but on occasion, I need to load another free, publicly available soundfont. For example, the Yahama Grand Piano .SF2 soundfonts available on "soundfonts4u", sound quite a bit richer than the grand piano on the default soundfont. Likewise, I occasionally use a different violin and strings font from a different free font site in my work.
The problem is, almost never can I assign a separate dynamic (pp, p, mp, mf, f, etc.) to the treble and bass clefs when using these other fonts, and have them work. When I try, MuseScore will use only one of the two dynamics marks, not both. So, I cannot assign a louder dynamic to the treble clef (e.g. - f) and a softer one to the bass clef (e.g. - pp). It is most annoying. The separate dynamics work fine in MuseScore's default soundfont, but not in most these other free ones.
I emailed John at soundfonts4, but he doesn't know what is going wrong or how to fix it.
Does anyone know how I can fix this? I'm grateful for your advice. Thanks
