Trombone dynamics in MuseSounds are bad
The sound of the trombones is problematic, PPP is inaudible, there is little to no difference between PPP, PP, and P, which is almost inaudible, and from P to F the difference is so big it makes it hard for FF and FFF to be any louder. Plus the sound is immediately a a "growly" sound (in french we say 'cuivré', but I don't know the english equivalent) in F, as if it was impossible to play the trombone loud but clean.
What should be :
PPP : almost inaudible
PP : very soft with a very tight embouchure
P : audible but still soft (aim for the sound a a euphonium)
MP : Clean sound, but soft, mellow
MF : a clean trombone sound that's affirmative but not obnoxious
F : A strong sound but absolutelly clean, no distorsion of any sort
FF : obnoxious trombone sound, almost menacing, with some "growly" effect
FFF : trombonist, do what you have to do.
Also here, relative to other brass instruments, I have to boost the intensity on the trombone mixer to match other instruments in a piano dynamic setting
Here is my +1. For orchestral wind bands, this is definietly true as well, especially for the lower dynamics.
This can also be said for the snare drum (inaudible when every instrument plays piano), but I can open another issue if this is helpful to better organize single topics. For dynamics starting from mp, the snare drum mixes in much better.
I'll have to +1 this.
When I used MuseScore 4 to open my "perfectly balanced" score created in MuseScore 3, which is a full string orchestra plus a solo violin and a piano, I can barely hear the other string parts because the solo and the piano is way too loud. I have to do a lot of balancing work using the mixer and it's still not fixed yet.
