Gibson Les Paul soundfont 1 month 4 days ago #1
I recently sampled my Gibson Les Paul guitar for a private music project. Since the final result will be released under CC BY-SA 4.0, I decided to also release this soundfont. So here we go...

Version: 1.0, released February 2020

The guitar is a Gibson Les Paul Standard, produced in the year 2001 (serial no: 02611484).
The strings are D'Addario EXL115 Nickel Wound (medium gauge)
All strings are tuned one half tone down (e.g. the E string is on D#).
A capo was used to hold down the strings on the respective frets.
All non-picked strings were dampened with some tissue, making the recordings as dry as possible.
The bass was recorded directly using a Behringer UPhoria UMC202 HD device.
Also a wiring hack was applied to the guitar in order to record both pickups simultaneously.
The original samples were recorded at: 44.1kHz, 24bit
I didn't use the loud samples for the soundfont.
So I digitally amplified the selected samples by the factor 2
and reduced them to 16bit depth so the total soundfont size stays within the 2GB bounds.
The sound font contains two banks:
The "sweet spot" for the MIDI velocity lies at 110 +/- 3.
