I've made an MT32-pi device, and loaded a set of cool soundfonts into it.
It's a lot of fun to have a MIDI playlist (e.g. in Falcosoft MIDI Player) and listen to your favourite tracks, occasionally pressing the physical "Change Soundfont" button on the device to change to a particular track's ideal soundfont.
Rather than pressing the physical button to switch soundfonts, it's also possible to send custom SYSEX messages to the MT32-pi, to make it switch.
So ideally, I'm picturing the MIDI playlist, with tiny MIDI files in between each track in the playlist, setting the soundfont for the upcoming track. Or perhaps I'm barking up the wrong tree, I don't know.
How are people doing this? assuming they are. Do I use a certain software to create a bunch of tiny MIDI files containing just a SYSEX message, e.g. one for "change to soundfont 0", one for "change to soundfont 1", etc?
Or might somebody even be kind enough to create such a set of MIDIs, implementing the basic control set described in the link above (allowing for, say, changes between up-to-10 soundfonts), if it's only a trivial job with the right setup? Which I could then manually insert into my playlists.
