Crescendo / Decrescendo on individual notes using volume instead of velocity

• Jan 28, 2022 - 08:29

Hello :D

This may exist already, if so kindly direct me to it ^^"

I am trying to get a sustained note to increase/decrease in volume in Musescore like I used to do in Cakewalk, but it appears one can only change the velocity of notes rather than the volume of the whole staff.

Is there any way to do it, or see it added? This could be relatively easy by having hairpins given the option to affect velocity OR volume.

Thank you!


To be clear: MuseScore does this completely automatically if you've added the appropriate dynamic markings and you are using the default settings. If you are using a non-default soundfont, you may need to change CC settings in View / Synthesizer / Dynamics. Or if you're changing sounds within the default soundfont, be sure to stick to the "expr" sounds when using instruments that support these single note dynamics.

If you need further help with this, please attach your score and describe where you are having trouble. Then we can understand and assist better.
