Re: VSTSynthFont hangs when playing instruments for the first time

Might be another issue as well. Cakewalk will not load the file either. Back to the drawing board.

Re: VSTSynthFont hangs when playing instruments for the first time

Maybe you are running out of memory. This version loads the whole SoundFont into memory by default. I tested it on my PC in SynthFont2, REAPER and VStHost. All three managed to load this version of VSTSoundFont without problems and there's plenty of free memory left. However, SynthFont1 doesn't load...

Re: Viena 0.999 Purge Problem

Here's an even better version:

"B" doesn't really fix any bugs, it merely prevents a potentially bug from occurring in relation to the Purge action.

Re: Viena 0.999 Purge Problem

John, Just by chance I stumbled upon one bug in the latest versions (it must have been there for a long time!) that may or may not be causing you problems. The error is in how the Purge function handles samples with bad stereo pair links. Like in this SoundFont: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jzuvcaf72w4...

Re: VSTSynthFont hangs when playing instruments for the first time

Thanks Mike, when I get the time I will figure out why SyFonOne "misbehaves" with small buffer sizes like 256 samples (with ASIO, of course - I use ASIO4ALL). Shouldn't be any reasons for it, really. Here is my first test version of a new VSTSynthFont: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rybmltwk9cf...

Re: Viena 0.999 Purge Problem

Thanks John,
I've spent literally days - if not weeks - trying to reproduce this behavior, but with no luck. If you think you can reproduce it an send me the instructions I would jump of joy!

Re: VSTSynthFont hangs when playing instruments for the first time

Mike, looking into the issue now. One question: have you ever tested my midi port (=your keyboard's port) player, SyFonOne? It has basically the same synth engine as the VST instrument but as it runs in its own thread there's very little risk that your keyboard jams. Just set it up to hook to your k...

Re: VSTSynthFont hangs when playing instruments for the first time

Hi Mike,
I will look into it. It sounds like a possible reason for the host (any host) to get locked up for a short while, especially if the SoundFont is large. I could include an option to have the VST load the complete SoundFont into memory at startup, of course. Like in SyFonOne. I'll think about.

Re: SynthFont2 cannot load Faust VST effect

Well, well... I gave it a try but SynthFont2 would still not accept the Faust generated DLL on my computer. I got the error message "Invalid access to memory location" from Windows when loading the DLL (using the standard Windows LoadLibrary function). REPAER though managed to load the fil...

Re: How to assign a soundfont to each note?

There is actually a third alternative: You can create a SoundFont in which, for one or several Presets (aka Instruments), each note or range of notes plays a different sound. You an use my SoundFont editor Viena to achieve this, quite easily.
