This is mostly a compilation soundfont, but I have edited nearly every single sound in there, whether it for looping(SSO), velocity layers(all the brass, the bass clarinets, cflute, etc...), or volume(everything). I didn't touch AA violin, that thing is a work of art. It's not looped, but... omg, it's beautiful *because* it isn't looped. A lot of these sounds are free things that are now nearly impossible to find outside of sf2midi, or actually impossible to find(westgate).
Wishlist:More French Horns, real stopped hornsMuted versions of all brass and stringsTrombone Wah-wahs, maybe Trombone slidesReal Col legno, spiccato, sul G, point of the bow(can't remember the italian, punta del'arco? or something)Solo Viola. Solo everything, so I can make better samples.English HornWagner Tuba.BBb Tuba and F TubaA real Baritone hornBass Trumpet
C3 on a Cello is the G string stopped. C3 on a Viola is open C. Not sure about the dynamics but open strings generally have harsher attacks than stopped. The Viola C string has the most harsh attack of all strings I've found. It's not always all the samples to blame. The biggest example is probably the openG on violin versus the same now on the cello.(Violin much harsher while cello is warmer.)
I really enjoyed loading this SoundFont on my midi keyboard. Lots of nice sounds to play and I'm looking forward to any updates.I've done a fair bit of work on some of the SSO sounds myself so if you are looking to incorporate say chamber strings or a multi velocity layered flute or 6 layered piano then you are welcome to pull these from one of my Full-Keys SoundFonts from here: Great work - thanks again.John
I think it would be a great idea you add a guitar section. This should include six to ten classical guitars, six to ten acoustic (steel strings) guitars, three to six 12-string guitars, and tree to six acoustic basses. 2b1af7f3a8
