I faced a problem in Musescore 3.4.2.When I use a hairpin (e.g diminuendo) for a note , it only affects the volume of the next untied note (and without any gradient,a solid diminution) and the current note is held intact.By the next untied note here I mean E4 in the following screenshot but that's not the case here because I've used Dynamics.

And here's the properties in the inspector window : enter image description here

What am I doing wrong? Is it related to the SoundFont I'm using ? BTW I use a different soundfont for Violoncell.

Thanks in advance.

  • I can't explain why no volume gradient is audible in Musescore 3 .4, which should support single-note volume gradients, but I must note that your decrescendo has only one note between its beginning and end and therefore may justifiably affect only that middle note (at best) and may not even reach the ending note with "mp" on it (at worst). – Dekkadeci Jun 28 '20 at 12:03
  • If you switch to the standard soundfont that shipped with the package, does it then do as you wish? In the mixer, it's "Cello Expr." – Nevin Williams Jul 5 '20 at 23:44
  • @NevinWilliams Yeah.That only works with the default soundfont.What can I do to achieve the same thing from a custom soundfont? – Parsa Mousavi Jul 16 '20 at 14:21
  • @Dekkadeci From the musescore manual : By default, a hairpin always affects playback when it spans a series of separate notes. In addition, for instruments supporting single note dynamics (e.g. strings, brass etc.), playback is also enabled across a single note or series of tied notes. (Note: Prior to version 3.1 hairpins only affected playback between notes, not that of single or tied notes.).How should an instrument in a soundfont support single note dynamics? – Parsa Mousavi Jul 16 '20 at 16:06
