How do I lessen the "attack" on choir Ooohs?
Hi all. I just completed a large 20-instrument score. It turned out well except for the Musescore default choir "Oooh" sound. When I tried to use it, each note played in the voice started really strong with an OOoooh for every note. Thus, when placing 4 differing notes in a measure, the sound was OOoh, OOoh, OOoh, OOhh. What I needed was a soft blended oooh sound, merging quietly into the next 3 notes in the measure, just as a choir would do. I tried using ties, but the effect was still pronounced. As a result, I had to use a 3rd party free choir soundfont, which fixed the problem.
Is there a way (perhaps using Polyphone or Musescore itself) to take the Oooh sound in Musescore's default soundfont, and soften/quiet the first symbol so the attack is quieter and softer? I can then use Polyphone to replace the default soundfont with the softer one, or instruct folks who want to download the score how to adjust their own default soundfont.
Thanks as always
