I received an e-mail regarding the proposal of expanding SoundFont format and create a V3 standard.

I would like to propose some further improvements to the proposed standard. Where can I input them?
Please advice.

Thanks.

SoundFont format V3 already exists and is called SFZ. Please do not reinvent the wheel and introduce another standard that no one needs!

I have created a draft of the data structure which will be used in the Soundfont Format version 3. Please check it out. It is the latest issue which I have posted on the github page.

Thanks,

Strix.

Whatever you do, don’t name it V3 or SF3 because SF3 is already in existence and allows for Ogg containers (currently specified for the Vorbis codec only, but Ogg FLAC would be a possibility) in an otherwise SF2-alike (with minor differences) soundfont.

SFZ is completely different, too, so it’s not that. It’s a different standard that can coëxist.

I’m not so sure we need a(nother)/new format, either…
