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

Crisis averted

Whilst going through my credits list, adding as much known licensing info as I can for all my sources, I found a supposed legitimate free soundfont using commercial samples. Not only that, they tried to hide it, inverted waveforms, renamed everything, make you sign up to access download, and forbid you of redistributing and commercial use unless you buy a license from them.

Known dodgy source instruments replaced. Better free sources found.

This late in the game, one instrument changed, another one added, numerous balancing fixes, and an even better more natural reverb setting alteration, "Four minutes ahead of schedule. Damn I'm good."

Still moving forward

Still finding bugs, fixing issues I wasn't happy with before, like taiko drums transposition, again with the attack of the string sections, but it's worth it as it sounds better and all blends well. Just the slightest volume balancing adjustment can make everything sound quite different, so I do a lot of testing. Still collating licensing info, surprising how hard it is to find on my drives, as well as old web links that no longer work. I'll do what I can.


Pretty much there

The last demo I uploaded had it's problems, harsh attack, unbalanced reverb settings; orchestral instruments all had the same value and were too muddied, lack of depth/space. It's all been addressed, and this is the best the soundfont has sounded so far. I don't know if I'll start adjusting panning as this is usually set in midi files. But aside from more testing, we're nearly done.
