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:

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Audio/Other-AUDIO-Tools/Viena.shtml

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.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
