REGRESSION FM SOUNDFONT 12mb for Coolsynth v2.0 release candidate

GM Compatible 12mb soundfont.  Completely chiptune and reminiscent of an old FM synth or NES.

Gives that old-school vibe.  It's a labor of love of over 10 years and 9 months.  Do enjoy!

Included a few sample midis.  You will surely like this if you enjoy oldschool midi files.

Works in dosbox with most general midi supporting games.  If a game sounds BAD let me know.

Only real deviation from this GM standard is the bird tweet and breath is a cat scream sound.  So if you beat Doom1 expect to hear angry kitties :)

No, seriously, this thing has Shinobi (Genesis version) drums in it, lots of FM/Genesis/Megadrive sounds, NES (8-bit/famicom) sounds, NEC TG16 sounds, MS-DOS/Windows FM midi sounds, C64 type sounds, check it out.

 

If you love nostalgia this is for you.  If you use Vanbasco you can reduce hitting the soft-volume-limiter and hence distortion by lowering midi volume to 96~104 or so.  Certain instruments when used on this driver come through too loudly vs others, like some slap bass and distortion guitar sounds and can distort, just lower the control volume.  This is a real synthesizer and hence you can tweak the instrument laters (they're mostly multi-layered) to your liking.  If your good with soundfonts you'll love this.  Includes XG/GS presets (some, possibly not all) so other music that uses it won't sound broken.

You may wish to boost the treble and lower the bass a bit when listening to this.  I use bass @ 1 quarter, three-quarters up on treble, but that's up to you.   This soundfont is tuned to accuracy of +/-0.6 of a cent.

Check out midis by TECK or KING METEOR on vgmusic.com if you'd like more.  Lots of songs on there work great.

NES INSTRUMENTS:

Fingered Bass, SAXes, Clean Guitar, one of the organs, square wave, charang, fiddle, shamisen, bagpipe

NEC INSTRUMNETS:  NEC Bass (Synth bass 2), RAIN FX PAD also.

FM INSTRUMENTS:  Most of the rest of it is a mix that makes a medly of dos/windows FM sound and Sega Genesis/Megadrive FM sound

 

You mileage may vary.  2.0rc1 or better version of the COOLSYNTH recommended for lack of sticking notes.

Feel free to make retro soundtracks or albums with this but if you get ritch don't forget about lil' old me!

Re: The Soundfont thread

People first time always get difficulties with SF selection to download.

As for my preferences, for GeneralMidi purpose (live midi or ordinary MIDI files  play, for instance) there are some useful SFs you can find and dowload from inet:

1) For x64 systems - large and rich SF (take attention to SF size, not only for SF name)
FILE NAME:
Evanessence2.sf2
SF INFO:
Name: Evanessence 2.sf2
Copyright: SynthFont Viena
Sample data size: 1762893630 bytes
Compressed samples: No

2) For x32 systems - small and balanced SF suitable for emu hardware midi synth (level adjusted)
FILE NAME:
bennetng_AnotherGS_v2-1.sf2
SF INFO:
Name: AnotherXG v2.1
Copyright: http://bennetng.kc-studio.com
Comment: Samples from Akai, Cadenza, Chaos12MB, E-mu, FantaGM, Fluid2, Roland, RealityGM/GS, RealSoundGS2.0, UltimateDrums.
Sample data size: 33929878 bytes
Compressed samples: No

Note: URL "http://bennetng.kc-studio.com" is no longer exist.

3) For x32 systems - small SF with reverb-like effects injected into SF (when you have no digital WAVE processing of MIDI output)
FILE NAME:
onyx32MbGMStereo.sf2
SF INFO:
Name: 32MbGM stereo sound bank

Re: The Soundfont thread

Found the motherlode here (over 7GB compressed, 100+ soundfonts):
https://coolsoft.altervista.org/en/forum/thread/711

You will most likely need SFPack to unpack these to .SF2 instead of .sfpack

Just unzip the SFPack.zip file somewhere convenient, open SFPACK.exe, ignore the error message about registering shell extensions (if you want, you can probably let it register those by running as admin once, then you can probably get right-click options for .sfpack extensions?).  Then hit "Add Files",  add all the .sfpacks you want to use (unzip them somewhere temporary first), and then hit "Go!"
