Breath Expression soundfont

Questions discussions about the things that actually make the sound, i.e. MIDI apps, synthesizers, soft synths, etc.

Breath Expression soundfont

Post by LouisB »

Hi All,

I have just posted a new SoundFont called Breath Expression that in my opinion works really well with the Warbl. It is actually not a new SoundFont but a reorganisation of the existing MuseScore General Full HD soundfont that has the expression patches renumbered and moved to bank 0.

The soundfont can be downloaded here https://github.com/louis-barman/breath- ... t/releases

And the documentation is available here https://github.com/louis-barman/breath- ... soundfont/

The soundfont will not sound without setting the WARBL Expression to "Send Pressure as CC"
using #2 (breath) as the controller. Also I have found that it works better on some of the patches if MIDI mono mode is turned on which I do using one of the Warbl button to send MIDI message CC #126

There are 91 different instrument patches available, some of the instrument sounds that I like are the Reed Organ, Harmonica, Cello, Harmon Mute Trumpet, Tenor Sax, Oboe and Recorder.

Please note that this soundfont does not work with SForzando but fortunately it works great with qsynth see https://sourceforge.net/projects/qsynth/ The qsynth latency delay can be improved by reducing the buffer size and buffer count.

It also works on Android with FluidSynth MIDI Synthesizer. But on my phone at least I find no matter what the sound font there is too much latency.
