hi folks! i'm enjoying this interesting tool. though it can be a bit cumbersome to use, it has a lot of capability.

i'm a little worried about how the preset creation and editing work. it seems that if you add a preset it does so at the beginning of the list which is a bit annoying. so your preset 0 instrument becomes preset 1. furthermore it doesn't look like you can re-order or re-number the presets which means that if you wanted to keep preset 0 you had originally, you're out of luck.

other annoyances - if you delete a preset the rest of the presets do not renumber. so if you kept preset 01 but deleted 2 and 3 now the numbering goes from 01 to 04. if this is strictly read by by the soundfont player it means you now have 2 empty preset slots. is there literally no way to renumber or re-order a preset? even creating a new soundfont and copying and pasting presets into it means the preset numbers are kept the same, so you literally cannot get rid of the gap. i can see the General tab and can view the preset data for the sound font but no modification to the information seems allowed.

second question - can you reduce volume attenuation via velocity? this would be very important for organ patches or any instrument or preset you don't want to have velocity response on. again i don't seem to see any option to reduce the amount of volume change via velocity.

any help appreciated!

you can change Preset numbers in the left upper corner; Bank ; Preset
select the Preset you want to renumber and type that number in the Preset field or play the up and down arrows.

the Velocity settings are just to access different velocity layers, not for Volume.

hi - thanks for the tip on the preset re-ordering, but i need a bit more description on the exact procedure.

if i click on the left side, and highlight the Presets heading, i am able to see a Bank- Preset heading in the Editing area (it's just to the right of the preset name), but i've tried all the ways i can think of to interact with it and i cannot seem to change the value. if i double click on a preset number, it just goes to the editing page for the preset. i'm on a Mac BTW using version 2.01. are you on Windows or Linux, or perhaps using a different version of Polyphone?

i'm in Windows10 and i use Polyphone 1.9 because it works better than the newest version.
take a look at the attachment, a picture tells more than a thousand words..
