A General MIDI soundfont named GENERAL MIDI (General, as in the rank). Demonstrates examples of my soundfont's capabilities.

I travelled back to England to watch the London Symphony Orchestra perform John Williams' score to STAR WARS Episode VI Return Of The Jedi. So great to watch the string sections up close, absolutely incredible. So long after the film's release it was a privilege to finally witness. I saw them perfom Episode IV A New Hope (2018?) from quite far back, so feel very lucky to have been so close this time.

Much, much better (2 new demos)

After finally very probably getting the best reverb settings I can, I decided to go back and address some minor balancing issues. Most importantly the percussion (drum kits and timpani). I increased their volume more significantly, as I'd effectively positioned them at the back, they were just that, in the background. Now they're more prominent and accentuate the rest of the orchestra, doing their job much better and giving a fuller, more rounded sound.

Despite numerous hardware failings I continue to push forward whilst I still can.

One last demo?

I hope people can still hear this new one, big improvement.

This is probably as much as I can get from the old soundfont synth engine. Not perfect, but optimal. Some good, fairly realistic room ressonance. Not too wet but glistens slightly. Not too dry but still retains texture. Tight, hard damping for control, yet still has a big sound and nice trail after effect.

All I know is that I know nothing

I've altered the reverb settings so many times, and changed it's configuration altogether. It's so much better now, more where it needs to be. More rounded sound, depth, great room response now, still a relatively big enough trail.

Kiwi6 is begining to close down, 'sunsetting' it's services? That is a great shame.
