I really liked the Handbells.sf2 from the website handbellpractice.com. Unfortunately, the site has gone missing, replaced by a parking page :(
My favorite feature was the multiple bell techniques in the soundfont, so I could switch between bells, chimes, thumb-damping, marting, etc. with a staff text.
In the meantime, I uploaded the low quality demo version of the soundfont to my google drive. Hopefully the original owner is cool with that, but even if he/she isn't, at least I'll know what happened to them . . .
also, an XML file (of my creation) for easier use in musescore:
If anyone has any info of the whereabouts of the old site owner or knows how to get that soundfont back on the market, please post.
The "HandBells.sf2" Soundfont by FMJ Software (http://www.fmjsoft.com/siframe.html) is a fantastic resoucre. Simply download the font (Hand Bells.sf2) and copy it into you MuseScore sounds directory (possibly "C:\Program Files\MuseScore\sound"). To use the soundfont, simply display the synthesizer (Display-->Synthesizer) and then use the Mixer (Display-->Mixer) to change to the handbell sample.
I created a plugin for english handbell composers & arrangers that helps create the performance notes detailing the notes used by octave as well as sharps and Flats used. It analyzes the current score and creates a txt file containing the notes used (by octave) as well as the total notes, sharps and flats used.
