Request for fluid-soundfont
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

  • Fluid-soundfont
  • Doesn’t really have a home page, seems to have disappeared from the face of this earth except for the Debian package:

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/fluid-soundfont-gm

    • Solus has no sound fonts and this would make it a lot easier for users to use programs like fluidsynth. There are not a lot of good soundfonts laying around, especially not open source ones so this one is pretty unique... It is also known to work well with fluidsynth.
    • Yes it is open source and release under MIT
    • I think most people wanting to play music with midi keyboards or make music in software using MIDI files
  • Link to download:

http://http.debian.net/debian/pool/main/f/fluid-soundfont/fluid-soundfont_3.1.orig.tar.gz

There are two files one is a smaller package and one is a bigger one. The bigger one is the one known to work well with fluidsynth. Both those files should be placed in /use/share/sounds/sf2 since that is the correct location for sf2 files...

Okay did some more testing on this and apparently the small file is non functional with Fluidsynth, no need for it then

I was actually trying to get this working a while back, but couldn’t manage to do it. Might give it a another try soon...
