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.


Hi! If anybody interested in a good, well arranged, crossfade looped, distorted double-tracked guitar samples I put them out here:

I just know how terrible does a midi guitar sound so some little help will be appreciated.

All the info is inside the archive. I think I'm gonna continue my guitar sample production in the future. But I also want to know is it possible to make a multisample based variation for each note with sound fonts?


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" -
