Recently, I have been working on a GM sound set for Musescore. Near the end of making the soundfont, I'm having issues. As soon as the soundfont hits 2GB, it either drops out samples (they suddenly go blank, meaning there is no sound), or the whole soundfont is unusable, as attempting to open it with Polyphone gives the error 'Corrupted File'.

I like Polyphone, but do not want to switch to Viena to keep on going. It is important for all the sound quality to be retained, so I'm not going to reduce the file size.

Also, I have the issue of Polyphone crashing when compressing to sf3, which is the only method I will use to make the soundfont smaller.

Thanks,

Strix SoundFont

2 Gb tells nothing about quality. for a good sound it is better to delete the inferior samples (and monomose all samples).
compressing to sf3(=mp3) will only make the sound worse, as these mp3files have to be decompressed, so you run one application extra.

So, I decided to get Viena, and it works. Guess I'm going to keep on using Viena for soundfonts from 2-4GB. However, I like Polyphone more than Viena, so can that be something that can be fixed in Polyphone 1.10 or 2.0? Thanks!

You are right, the 2GB limit is not acceptable. I'll address this issue in the next version of Polyphone to come. The version will include more changes than usual so please be patient :-)

As a temporary fix you can maybe split the presets into several soundfonts whose sizes will be less than 2GB.

Regards,
Davy

I want to make a Roland SC-88Pro compatible SoundFont, therefore I can't split the soundfont into parts, as there are patches in SC-88Pro like 'piano and strings', and 'orchestra' (strings and brass), which depend on each other. Putting them together results in a soundfont above 2GB. Also, Viena only makes 2.01 (16 bit) SoundFonts, not 2.04 (24 bit), so I don't want that. I want to retain all the quality. Also, if there are more changes, will it be called '2.0' (instead of '1.10')?

Ok I understand. It will be Polyphone 2.0 :-)
