sound fonts?

ignorance ain’t bliss…

hey guys watching the forum i can see you guy’s talking about sound fonts, just want to know what is it and how does it work? does it need a diff. software?

a google for “what is a soundfont” will help for know the basic. But It is related to midi: they are basicly “compiled” samples that can be used via midi.

The April issue of the Electronic Musician magazine has a good feature about soundfonts.

Basically, soundfont is a file format for sample players - and a pretty widely used one.

Check out rhe Audiominds forum. I have written pages and pages about soundfonts over there.

Thanks guys be checkin’ them out!
