Released Version 5 of my soundfont.
I think it sounds different enough to justify a version number upgrade. I think I finally have Tyrian sounding proper now.
I still have to change the basic and tiny soundfonts to match the new changes, this shouldn't be hard to do, I just need to do more testing with my raspberry pi to make sure everything is still working before I release those.
They will be at version 1.0 when that's done.
I will be doing a fairly major update after this. I'm probably not going to have a GM Complete and Orchestra release after this (other than bugfixes). GM Basic will be the main version, and I will add a GS Compatible addon to replace the complete and Orchestra packs. It's goal will be to be 99% SC-55 compatible and be below 2gb.
We will see how that goes...
I really need to work on my own drum presets, but I can't seem to find good samples that match the acoustic signature of the GM standard. I still have some ideas that I can try with sound 3D room audio synthesization that might help, but I need to do some research on the GM spec first. (I've kind of ignored that until now)
If anyone wants to help, it'd be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to make something that sounds pretty similar to the Musescore General soundfont's Drumset, but with more velocities than they use (4 per key). This will only be used on the GS Compatibility addon and not the others. (I'll still use Musescore General for those).
