Polyphone has been deeply reworked for the major version 2.0 and is now connected directly to the online soundfont repository.
What is new
New software design
The interface was aging and you will now discover a new design with a new set of icons, most of them coming from the Awesome project.
The tree has been completely reworked. It displays data faster and provide other features such as the duplication of elements or the fast creation of instruments / presets with a drag & drop.
Access to the soundfont repository
All soundfonts from the online repository are accessible directly within Polyphone for Premium users. And for everyone, the randomly chosen "daily soundfonts" are freely shared.
Possibility to mute divisions
For testing purposes, it is possible to mute a division or mute all divisions but one in the tables.
Tool for creating chords
Based on an instrument, this tool allows you to create all possible chords. This could be interesting for example for the creation of a choir or pads.
German and Danish translations have been added. Please note that due to a lot of changes, only those translations are for now completed: Danish (thank you Chris!) and French.
What has been improved
Polyphone can now process the keywords "control", "include", "default_path", "global", "group_label" and "define" when importing sfz files.
Sorting rows is now done in a better way and the sample rate is displayed for the samples.
Editing preset and bank numbers
These operations can be done even on a multiple selection.
What has been fixed
It is now faster and big soundfonts (> 2 Go) shouldn't be a problem anymore.
Bug fixed when saving or loading 24-bit samples.
