I have a question about using vibrato (and other modulation stuff) in Polyphone.

When I add vibrato to an instrument or a preset in Polyphone, it seem to work fine. But if I load my soundfont in a Sf2-player, I hear no vibrato. The only way to get the right sound, is export the soundfont as a SFZ-file and play it with Plogue Sforzando. But I prefer using it as a Sf2. Am I doing something wrong? Or is the Sf2-format not suitable for vibrato and other modulators?

Regards,
Hans (from the Netherlands)

The sound engine embedded in Polyphone should reproduce accurately the sound of the presets except for the modulators defined here: www.polyphone-soundfonts.com/en/document...he-instruments/132#3 (this has not been implemented yet).
You may check with FluidSynth (Swami is using it) if the vibrato is right, I consider this software as a reference.
If only the other sf2-player provides no vibrato, you may send them a bug report.

The problem might be solved! My soundfont player (Phenome) seems not being able to play vibrato and other modulations. Neither does Saffron Soundfontplayer. RGC Audio SFZ(+) and Jeskola XS-1 do te job right.

Did you mean "software vibrato" or specific samples used for vibrato separately?

Hi Alex C!

I mean the vibrato options you can edit in Polyphone's instrument or preset screen, like "Vib LFO Delay", "Vib LFO freq" and "Vib LFO pitch".
