Error 41: Can't apply soundfont?

So I just downloaded the program, and it seems like it doesn't let me apply soundfonts.

I tried with two different, and neither of them worked.

Each time I tried this appeared:

Error: 41

Description: BASS_ERROR_FILEFORM: The file's format is not recognised/supported

Then it unables the soundfont.

Any help?

Re: Error 41: Can't apply soundfont?

It should be that the samples are somehow compressed with an unsupported codec, like FLAC or MP3.
Actually VMS does not support compressed samples, unless you provide the required BASS decode plugin.
(see here for details: https://www.un4seen.com/doc/#bassmidi/BASS_MIDI_FontInit.html)

Anyway, at first I'll try to load a well known working SF2 like FluidR3_GM or ChoriumRevA (see here for download links).
If they work, then double check that your SF2 file is not corrupted and which codec is needed to decode it.

I'm almost certain you are trying to add soundfonts in the .sfpack format. I dunno if VirtualMIDISynth can handle compressed files, but unpacking them into .sf2 format works for me. Takes more space but is less of an headache. Use the SFPACK program to uncompress. Run it as admin so it registers the .dll it comes with. http://www.synthfont.com/SFPACK.zip

Dear developer,

The site you are linking for FluidR3_GM it now contains only FluidR3_GM.sfArk, not .sf2 version and it is not working (same error in first post).

Here is a link to correct version:

Added your additional link to the list, thanks.
