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.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
