It appears Yamaha has modeled a 32 Bit GM Soundfont based from their Tyros Keyboards.

You can listen to it here and it is by far the BEST GM Sounds I have ever heard.

You're Welcome wink

**** I think it was made for Van Basco Midi Player. Will it work inside of Biab? Thanks

Trax,

Thanks for posting. That sounds incredible. At US$39.95 (16 bit) it sounds like a bargain.

Regards,
Noel

more information...

I bought the BLACK TYROS GM EDITION sound fonts.

I then downloaded and installed the 32-bit version of VSTSynthFont (1.096).

http://synthfont.com/Downloads.html

VSTSynthFont loaded into BIAB's 'default' VSTi synth slot fine.

When I opened the TYROS General Midi sf2 file, though, BIAB froze. I left it for a couple of minutes and then used CTRL+ALT+DEL to close BIAB.

When BIAB was re-opened, and I reloaded VSTSynthFont (and opened the Tyros sf2 file), all was good. MIDI tracks generated and the instruments were automatically assigned correctly.

At the moment, though - and this does not affect program operation, I cannot close BIAB without getting the Windows error "Your application has stopped working". I'm currently trying to isolate what might be causing this.

I'm just passing this information along in case it's of use to someone.

Regards,
Noel

Since it's a soundfont won't it work in Sforzando? The Tyros is an awesome keyboard, if this can work I'll be all over it.

Hi Bob,

I don't think this one'll work with Sforzando, unfortunately. Sforzando only supports SFZ format, this soundfont appears to be SF2 (slightly different).

Cheers

But SFZ will convert SF2s To SFZs.

If I were to purchase these soundfonts I would use a soundfont player. There are a few of them out there. Personally I will not buy this as SF2s are old technology and other sound sources are much better. Plus there are a number of GM SF2s out there for free that sound really good.

If you are using SF2s get a soundfont editor:

https://bedroomproducersblog.com/2013/03/13/polyphone-free-soundfont-editor

That way you can replace individual SF2s and/or create another GM SF2. When I was using SF2s I had a number of SF2 sets. Many were GMs but some were instrument specific like and orchestra, or all brass etc.
