Hey,
So im having an issue, im using FL Studio's built-in sample export to create custom soundfonts for easy acess
A small problem with it is that i have to manually set the root key to the sample root key (which is provided automatically when making the instrument)
Is there a faster way to do this?
Thanks.

i would say that that is a FL Studio issue, if i understand you right.
regards bottrop
in Polyphone you can auto detect rootkeys in the Sample view (select the sample, look bottom left)

Im afraid this isnt the case for these sf2's. Some of the samples are random noises without tuning, even when there is tuning, your method sets the sample root key, not the instrument root key. Sorry.
A better way to rephrase this is how to set the instrument root key to the sample root key without manually typing everything in.
It should also be mentioned that every single note is its own sample, so im dealing with up to 30 or 40 samples for a single instrument

5 select all samples and Bind to... your Instrument
6 Tools> Instrument> Automatic Distribution
