Re: synthfont2ofcourse

Yes, just checked the code. There MUST be 128 melodic presets (0-127) defined. Sorry about that. I used to let people decide if to accept a non-GM SoundFont, but it caused problems in the end I recall now. There are definitely better solutions than this one, for example, grabbing the missing presets...

Re: synthfont2ofcourse

The first thing to make sure of is that the SoundFont you want to use is a General Midi one - at least 127 Melodic Presets and one Percussion (Drum) Preset. So you mean to say that the "Play to File (Write)" button and the "Play to Both" button are always gray (disabled)? Make sure your SoundFont ha...

Re: VSTSynthFont hangs when playing instruments for the first time

No, can't link in statically. The borlndmm.dll is included in the official installation file(s), though, and gets installed in Windows\System32 folder. There are actually two versions of this file: one for the 32 bit VStSynthFont version and one for the 64 bit. Silly enough they have the same name, ...

Re: VSTSynthFont hangs when playing instruments for the first time

Yepp. There was one (at least one) bug that made Cakewalk crash. This version fixes that one: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m7vnyd5h3bijo7p/VSTSynthFont1070B.rar?dl=0 However, SynthFont1 still complains about out of memory when trying to load the whole SoundFont. It is probably a case of the 2GB virtual...

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/rybmltwk9cfmjeu/VSTSy...
