MidiSoundSynth Version 1

MidiSoundSynth is a program for playing MIDI files or MIDI data from an input port, using only the best SoundFonts available on the market. The program the result of a collaboration between Alberto Galluzzo at GoldMidiSF2.com (long recognized producer of high quality SoundFont) and SynthFont.

MidiSoundSynth has a very simple user interface, with only the features you really need, relying on the SynthFont2 synthesis engine. This is the first program on the market that can use the new proprietary SoundFont format “SFKR” (“SoundFont KompRessd”) designed and developed by SynthFont in collaboration with GoldMidiSF2. You can naturally also use standard SoundFonts in the traditional SF2 format, if you want.

This new compression algorithm is optimized for compressing sampled SoundFont audio data at 44100Hz and 16-bit. Compression is almost lossless, only noise and other irrelevant artifacts are removed. Thanks to a compressed size of about 25% compared to the original one, we have the possibility to create and distribute large SoundFonts.

One of the main features of MidiSoundSynth is the ability to choose and assign any SoundFont / Preset separately to each of the 16 MIDI channels present in the MIDI file. Additionally there are five built-in audio effects that can be assigned to each of the MIDI channels. All “MIDI arrangements or modifications” such as Tempo change, Key, Effects, Preset, etc., will be saved for later use in a file called "Arrangement", which also contains the original MIDI. MidiSoundSynth can generate audio files in various popular formats, such as WAV, MP3, MP4 and OGG.

For live playback and excellent performance, MidiSoundSynth supports low latency WASAPI technology.

MidiSoundSynth is currently available with support for five languages: English, Italian, Spanish, German and French

SynthFont - 1 and 2

SynthFont (free V.1 and paid V.2) is a program for editing and playing MIDI files using various sound source files like SoundFonts, GigaSampler files, SFZ files and more. VST instruments can also be used instead of a sound source file. A midi file is different from - for instance - an MP3 file in that the file does not contain any audio data. Instead, the file is a collection of notes and instructions for how to play them. SynthFont combines this data with the audio data in a SoundFont to produce ("render") an audio version of the song. Here are a few audio samples in MP3 format for you to  listen to.

Version 2.7.1.3 of SynthFont2 and  SynthFont2x64 released Mars 3rd, 2022, is available. Get it now!
