SynthFont
and other tools for Midi and SoundFonts
Viena?

Viena is my SoundFont editor (not to be confused with one other editor called "Vienna"). Viena can be used on any MS Windows computer independently of audio card installed (as opposed to the "Vienna" software).


SyFonOne?

SyFonOne is a Midi Port player based on SynthFont and VSTSynthFont. Hook it up to your Midi keyboard, or via a virtual midi port to your sequencer and play Midi using SoundFonts.


VSTSynthFont?

VSTSynthFont is a VST Instrument version of SynthFont (VST PlugIn Interface Technology by Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH).


in_aSyFon?

in_aSyFon is the Winamp plugin version of SynthFont. It is based on the same technology, but doesn't have any extra bells and whistles.

SynthFont?

SynthFont 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 - a MP3 file in that the file does not contain any audio data. 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.

What people say about SynthFont:

"Hi Kenneth, thanks for a great app and for making it free to give a proper try out. Keep up the great work! H.K."

"I've been writing big band charts for many years,  even ran a big band for the past 10 years. Too much work though to keep it going. All my scores are done in the old original Encore  notation program. I import the MIDI file (from Encore) into Synthfont and assign the correct SoundFont file to each track.Then I make a wav file, open my N-track program and bring in the wav file for editing and effects - then save the finished wav file and burn to CD. Incredible! Finally accomplished what I new I could could get done without a fancy studio.  Who needs those musicians anyway. Thanks for the great program Ken! -  P.R.S"

"I've only actually paid for shareware twice, and SynthFont is the second time.  Great program and I haven't even used half of it's options yet. E.C."

"SynthFont is outstanding music software. It is exactly the solution I was looking for when it comes to converting MIDI files to .wav files. I tried Timidity but SynthFont works much better for me. Also, the technical support is excellent. I was happy to purchase a registration to support this product. I strongly recommend SynthFont. D.R."

"Love what you have done, my old Sound Blaster card died a while ago and I missed using my SoundFonts I designed!  So thanks a bunch. M.B"

"Thank you for the perfect solution for my needs!! Such a nice recognition of Customer support too. A rare thing these days, sadly… S.K."
