How do I make a new intrument (soundfont) using my own audio file ?


Am new to Musescore (and like it lots !).
Would really like to use my own soundfonts to create my own instrument sounds with audio files I have made using audacity.

Cannot work out what to do (have looked in the handbook and this forum)

Would be very grateful for a quick how-to on doing this.

thanks in advance



You'll need a soundfont editor. A free one is Viena (with one N) see :
A tutorial :
Disclamer : I never did this myself and it seems to be quite a job.

You might also want to share your sound samples on :
Or check another soundfont editor : Swami.

Last thing :) if you manage to do it, I would love to read a tutorial from the ground. Even create the sample as you did is interesting to me.

Many thanks for the useful info.

looking forward to trying these out.


I have created my own electric guitar sound fonts and I would like to use them in Musescore. I have about 18 different sound editors, could you be more specific and tell me what kind of format I must finalize my sound font to in order for Musescore to read it?

They need to be in the format that is actually called "soundfont" -
