A whistle soundfont for Android/Windows users

Post by admin » Wed Sep 18, 2019 9:01 pm

A lot of Android and Windows users have asked me if there are tin whistle sounds available, so I put together an SF2 soundfont that can be opened in FluidSynth on Android, or in a number of DAW apps in Windows. I think it sounds reasonably decent for a first attempt ;) I don't have an Android phone, but I tested it in FluidSynth on my son's Chromebook, and that works fine. Here it is:

Thanks very much for this, the soundfont works perfectly with 'QSynth' (a front end to FluidSynth) on Linux.

Download and copy the soundfont file to the /user/share/soundfonts/ directory.
Started QSynth and Click the setup button followed by the soundfonts tab.
Select 'Open' and select the WARBL soundfont.
