B0rken Bass instrument on sfzformat.com

Post by bluebell »

There are some nice soundfonts on sfzformat.com.

I encountered one of the typical Windows users bug: messing caps/non-caps in file system and sfz-files.

Due to the b0rken-by-design NTFS file system that preserves caps/non-caps but ignores it when reading/writing files too many Windows users use caps/non-caps with directory and file names and don't copy/paste filenames into the sfz files to avoid typing errors. We know the results.

I made a bug report.

EDIT:
Got an answer. They point to Unreal Instruments. I guess it will by impossible for me to contact them. Anyone knows how?

I think I'll try to convert all dirs and files to lower case and edit the sfz files.

EDIT2:
Converted everything to lower case. Some files load but the master files (beginning with #) make Linuxsampler crash. Giving up.

No keys lit, so there is no valid key range detected.

Do you get any sound out of it? I failed.

Yes, though not so good while playing with midi keys some notes where missed.I don't use Linuxsampler often.
And it works in SFZero-X plugin much better.
Carla refuses to load these sfz complaining to every #include line. Strange, because it uses SFZero engine.
