Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, I now find that my previous post needs substantial qualification. Having exited Viena 0.996G, I then had reason to re-open it, and it presented me with the "corrupted" version of the soundfont as reported in my post. However, I now found that it was in fact NOT corrupted. So one needs to cl...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, I am very sorry to report that virtually having reached the end of making my current fairly large (for me) soundfont - about 120 MB, on the final Purge and then Save, corruption of the samples seemed to occur. Fortunately I was careful with backups, so no harm was done. I then used Viena 0....

Re: Questions about VSTSynthFont

Kenneth, Thank you. I actually got pragmatic and tried it out, and of course this confirmed what I recalled from my earlier use of VSTSynthFont. Fortunately jOrgan does allow for multiple instances, and so there is no real problem. And changing from one preset to another represents normal use, and s...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, Just finished the present unit of work by adding the final six samples to the preset, and using Viena 0.996G successfully. Then copied the preset to the combined soundfont. Correction on the last report: The "false" indication of corrupted samples actually occurs after purging and saving th...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, I can report that using the new Viena 0.996G, I have just added some samples to the preset I am currently working on, without anyu issues. I then copied that preset to the combined soundfont, including a Purge at the end of the process, and although the new soundfont sounded corrupted initi...

Questions about VSTSynthFont

Kenneth, Some years ago I began to investigate the use of VSTSynthFont with jOrgan. jOrgan is really a MIDI processor and still requires the use of some suitable sound engine into which an .sf2 file has been loaded. For convenience, Fluidsynth is bundled with the jOrgan download these days, but its ...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, Regarding the Copy Preset function, I shall be doing this again in the near future, so I shall make sure that I preserve the original soundfont, and then what 0.996F does to it after attempting the paste. Presumably this is what you are after. The combined soundfont is about 40 MB in size, ...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, I have made a zip file containing three log files. The two dated ones show 0.996F importing some sample files and then doing a Purge and Save. After the Save, some of the existing samples (not the new ones) sounded corrupted. However, after the soundfont file was closed and Viena exited, wh...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, I am pleased to report that with CSDispatcher installed, a log file is now being created. But I can't see any icon anywhere. So I do wonder whether it is on all the time, or whether I have control over it. (In typical fashion, the internet "reviews' of CSDispatcher are fairly mixed). John R...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, Sorry, but version E is also not creating a log file. I did a "Windows" Search for VienaLog, with no result. I am carefully following your instructions. Today I noticed a new problem being introduced by 0.996E. Although it allows me to hear the sounds in the Preset view, for some reason jOr...
