Music enthusiasts are constantly looking for specialized software solutions that can help them come up with innovative sounds and create great tunes. Those who often work with MIDI files can rely on SynthFont to manage their files and to render audio tracks, as soon as a SoundFont is loaded.
Powerful playback utility for MIDI files
The user interface might seem a little overwhelming to novices, since it comes packed with a flurry of functions and features, so you might need to take some time to discover each of them so as to get the most out of your tracks.
You can start by opening an existing MIDI or arrangement file, such as MID, MIDI, RMI, KAR, SFARR or S2ARR.
If you prefer to create a new project from scratch, you first need to specify the initial number of tempo tracks you want to add, then choose the MIDI program you prefer.
Handy editing functions for your MIDI projects
Once the file you are interested in is loaded within SynthFont, you can start editing its notes, while keeping in mind that you can only process the ones from the active track – however, you can simply double-click a note to make its track active.
From this point on, you gain access to a wide range of features that are best understood if you experiment with each of them, especially if you are not familiar with the terms.
For example, you can modify the number of beats and the tick fractions, as well as the standard length, the vertical and horizontal zoom or the melodic scale configuration.
Reliable and feature-packed MIDI processors
All in all, SynthFont comes in handy to all those who want to finetune their MIDI tracks, then load a corresponding SoundFont and listen to the output. It supports numerous types of source files, so it can be adapted to many uses.
– SynthFont2 now comes in two flavours: a 32 bit version (the “old” SynthFont2) and a 64 bit version (the new SynthFont2x64). Both versions are able to use VST plugins of any architecture. The 64 bit version can use 64 bit plugins natively and 32 bit plugins through the included VST Bridge (SFVST32TO64). The 32 bit version can use 32 bit plugins natively and 64 bit plugins through another VST Bridge (SFVST64TO32).
