What is SynthFont?
SynthFont is a free tool for playing MIDI files making use of SoundFonts. With SynthFont you do not need any particular sound card. In fact, if you only want to render audio files ("WAV" files) you don't even need a sound card. SynthFont makes it easy to assign different SoundFonts to difference MIDI channels.

What is Viena?
Viena as free tool for creating and editing SoundFonts. It is much modeled after the wellknown Vienna from Creative, but Viena does not require you to have a Creative audio card installed.

What is VSTSynthFont?
VSTSynthFont is a VST instrument. (TM by Steinberg). It is built upon the synth engine used in SynthFont and makes use of the same basic concept.


* SynthFont now responds to the two MIDI Continuous Controllers Registered Parameters "Channel Coarse Tune" and "Channel Fine Tune".
* Selectable default folder for arrangement files.
* Adjustable output main volume.
* New alternative audio file output formats: 32 bit IEEE floating point and 24 bit integer.

Bug fixes:

* Percussion soundfonts with preset bank value less than 128 could not be used in the percussion MIDI channel.
* Fixed reading of dls-files.
* Improved handling of VST instruments (not yet perfect, though).
* Some instruments became out of tune when the pitch shift was large.
* Linked samples where not correctly played.
* Audio files where slightly out of sync (too slow).
* MIDI files where not saved correctly.
* The live input mode has been much improved (with ASIO, only ASIO4ALL seems to work reliably, though).
* A lot of minor bugs fixed.
