Distort not working on Guitar

• Jun 17, 2023 - 19:12

I am adding the Distort text to my 7 String guitar part and it just won't work. Harmonics and Mute also do not work. Old Musescore 3 compositions I made with made Distorted 7 String guitars also had their distortion property removed from them after I switched to MuseScore 4.

"on Musescore 3 the 7-String Guitar would distort when I told it to. "

No, you're making a mistake. With V3, if you choose a 7-string guitar, you have a single channel (Normal) in the Staff text properties - image below.


To have multiple channels (distortion, harmonics etc.), you need to choose an electric guitar.

Ah, you mean changing the sound of the instrument in the Mixer? But since you also mentioned harmonics in the first message, I thought you meant changing some sounds over the score with a single instrument.
In fact, with V4 you can no longer change the sound of an instrument as you could with V3 (or perhaps with a VST, but I'll pass, as this is beyond my current knowledge of the V4)

Can you attach a MuseScore 3 file that plays the 7 string distortion sound when opened in MS3. Forget MS4 for the time being. Do you have a working score in MS3 that you can attach?
The "Clad in Green" score attached above was saved in MS4, so MS3 protests about it being from a newer MuseScore version.
