Well ppl tell us how ur going with ur mixing!!!
Well... I just finished an 85MB grand piano SoundFont from one-third of the recorded samples in the University of Iowa sound archive, cleaned and restored. You can download it here, if you sign up for a free 50MB Xdrive account.
Listen to some demos with this M3U.
Nicely done, Zandro! Very nice, clean piano sound. Can this font be played by SynthFont? Or would I have to actually own some Creative hardware?
Thank you! Yes, you can use the SoundFont with SynthFont. I actually recommend the software over the hardware in this instance, for the EMU-10Kx engine is prone to outputting clicks under high polyphony consisting of large samples. But, I have to be honest and say some clicking is also present in the samples themselves, as they were very poorly recorded in the start. I cleaned up much of it, but the rest is too much to bother for an alpha release such as this.
Nice! I tried some piano songs I've composed, and I like the sound. There is some sound of the action in the upper register which makes my all 16th note etude sound very mechanical. Of course, part of the problem there is my sequencing. See what you think:
Also, here's some more test fodder that I've sequenced for piano, if you'd like:
This is how the piano samples sounded originally. http://www.boomspeed.com/zandro/ppDb.m3u
I don't want to restore any more.
Those are fine pieces for testing. I can use them for the next round of UOI sample compilations I am planning.
