SF2 support?


(Akiz) #1

Hello,

I am very happy that SFZ are supported now.
But i dont have any. I have a lot of SF2 :slight_smile:

But the SF2 are not supported. If you load it you will get all the individual sound loaded as one sample.
It is better than nothing but…

Can you add support for SF2? Or is there any software (best for linux) that can make batch conversion from SF2 to SFZ?

Thank You

You could run v2.8 using the extended file format tool, import all sf2 and save them as instr.

Uh… Then I mixed this up. Sorry. But somehow I already converted SF2 to XRNI… Maybe with some converter available…

You can try this:

This is the best free / grey orchestral library ive ever heard. It would be amazing to have it in renoise.

So many files that convert one by one would be horrible.

Have you already tried Polyphone??

It seems that I can convert SF2 to SFZ by this.

Polyphone

  • File >> Open (SF2)
  • File >> Export soundfont (choose SFZ format)

Renoise 3.1
- “Import Multi-Sample” in the Keyzones preset menu.

(Ah,now I notice thatsimply I can load sfzfiles from browser)

I use Polyphone for converting as well. Quick, easy, and you can do batch conversions of multiple sf2 files into their own folders filled with the sfz files and raw samples. I can vouch for this program (flipping amazing to have soundfonts in Renoise now because of it, and the Renoise Team of course.

Definitely use it to convert that library, it will take under 30 seconds to load up your soundfonts and convert them all once you know how it works, and it works pretty simply lol
