I just want to know how can I steep the gradient of crescendo (or diminuendo) effect in Musescore?
In normal situations it's like there are no effects at all.
I'm using Musescore 3.2.

    Are you trying to enhance the visual effect (hairpin size, etc.) or the volume effect? If you mean the latter, then a crescendo/diminuendo does nothing without dynamics flanking it (hidden or not).

  • I've also added dynamics before hairpin but finally changing the velocity parameter in inspector for the hairpin does the trick. Commented Feb 19, 2020 at 8:32

Just found the answer.Actually I needed to change Hairpin parameters in the inspector for the hairpin.Furthermore, dynamics besides the hairpin is necessary as others pointed out.

Velocity options in inspectors

Also Exponential Dynamics method makes the effect more audible and less gradual.
