Appreciate it, yes I set the Sample End Offset from -xxxxxx to 0 and it works now. But what is Sample End and Start Offset and how to set it in Viena or Vienna ?

Thanks again

if you use single samples (like you do) you dont need to set sample offsets, the complete sample will be played.
there are people in this world who think it is better to have all samples in one file an pick parts setting start and end offsets.
advice; stay with Polyphone.

I prefer dual samples for stereo instruments (this is not my soundfont) Yes but what is sample offset for and how to set that in Viena and Vienna ?
Yes I like to have one soundfont or sf2 file store all the samples for an instrument too if that is what you mean. I'm not sure how start and end offsets help here.
Sure but Viena has a nice look to it.

stereo in a soundfont is nonsense. if you have two ears you hear everything in stereo. but if you like to give yourself and your computer twice as much work as necesary, go ahead.

I suspect the offsets are referring to the samples and are a number added or subtracted to the sample number. Perhaps useful if your sample has a silent gap at the beginning. An offset could make it start to play when the sound really begins and not play the silent bit.

I agree with Bottrop, forget about Viena (it has only one 'n'). It is very old and Polyphone works much better. However I do not agree with him about stereo. All musical instruments produce stereo sound and if you do not record stereo samples your sound font will be inferior to one which uses proper stereo samples.
