"Expressive" Voices (single note cresc/decresc) completely missing from Flatpak version

Reported version
S3 - Major

To reproduce:
1) Install the Musescore 3.6.2 Flatpak on a supported Linux distro (elementaryOS 6.1 in my case)
2) Create or open a file that contains a long note with an audible crescendo/decrescendo
3) Notice that the crescendo/decrescendo does not sound as it should in playback, and that "Expressive" voices are missing from the Mixer.

This is a major flaw for my use case, as the DEB in the Ubuntu repos is still on 3.2, and the appimage "stops responding" every few seconds. Flatpak is objectively a major player in the Linux app distribution space, so Musescore should be running its best as a Flatpak.


The issue on Linux is there are just too many different distributions and packaging methods for MuseScore to be able to provide officially-supported builds for all of them. So we build, distribute, and support just one - the AppImage. If you have issues with that, definitely report them here, that is something we can look into. But if you are having any issues with a third party build that is distributed and supported by someone else, you'll have to contact them about any issues that crept in when they created their build.

Could be they messed something else up too. But also, when you say it’s not the soundfont, are you saying you downloaded the official 3.6.2 soundfont file and it’s didn’t work for you either?

Are you sure you got the correct version of MuseScore_General, then? What is the exact URL that you downloaded it from? Did you place the new soundfont at the top of this list? If you go to View Mixer, are the sounds being used in your score all labeled "Expr" (eg, Strings Fast Expr)?

I downloaded from the link provided by dragonwithafez, and like I said, I renamed the new one to make absolutely sure the right one was enabled.

I’ve never looked for or seen “Expr” anywhere in musescore ever on any operating system. I will check.
