Update: apparently, trying to open the Temp versions of the file, both of which are 3/4 the size of the original file, gives me "sorry, no. corrupted" as well. What does "pdta" even mean? All I've done is rename some of the instruments so far!

Edit: apparently the first temp file (from the last time hitting save made the program implode) is corrupted for a different reason listed as "sdta." Don't know if that's relevant.

The bug should've been fixed in 2.0.

The 2GB limit

Before I can help you to fix this issue, I will ask you a few questions:

1. How big is the PDTA-Corrupted Soundfont?
2. How big is the SDTA-Corrupted Soundfont?
3. Do any bigger Soundfonts open?

pdta and sdta are parts of the file and this is for debug purposes.

Do you have a link to a big soundfont that can be read with Polyphone and that is apparently messed up after a save? Maybe there is a problem in the save function when dealing with some giga bytes of data.

I just got this problem too, and my file wasn't even a gigabyte!

update: i remember checking the 24-bit sample box before it got corrupted. my money's on that being the reason why. for ME at least this problem isn't applicable anymore, because i restarted working on that project already and got to more or less the same place I was before. dunno what to say for that other dude

Mine was 24-bit too...

According to some documents I found, 24-bit samples were added some time around the turn of the century. Rework time?
