Viena 0.999 Purge Problem

Kenneth, I am back to making samples and a new soundfont, and I'm afraid I have to report that Viena 0.999 is sometimes (not always) corrupting the samples after purging and then saving. It's not a consistent behaviour. It's just like what was happening with some of its recent predecessors. I have t...

Re: Questions about VSTSynthFont

Kenneth, My question is related to the total of all the samples and any "overhead" content. jOrgan people think that Fluidsynth has a limit of 600 MB. Is there a ball-park figure for what total size we should not exceed when using VSTSynthFont? Does this figure reduce if a number of instan...

Re: Questions about VSTSynthFont

Kenneth,

Another question. What sort of limit is there on the size of soundfonts when used with VSTSynthFont?

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 n...

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...

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 ...
