Is it possible in psycle to make an instrument with multiple samples for different pitches, like in FT2? This is an absolute necessity for me, no piano is going to sound very good without it

Maybe the next version of the psycle sampler machine will handle multi sample format like soundfonts .sf2
actually you can use a VSTi sampler (like twinsef ) for that.

Well, I managed to get the plugin (Twinsef) but now I have trouble getting sound out of it. I have A soundfont loaded, what now? No notes are playing when inserted to the matrix.
//edit: ok, worked it out. The soundbank wasnt loaded even if the font was... silly

Ok, thanks for the tips, more questions: Is there any way to get more polyphony, Twinsef and sf-play seem very limited (1-3 voices). I could probably use my Audigy sf-manager and load sf:s in, then use psycle to play them. But that seems too much of a hassle to do everytime I load a song. So is there a more clever way around this? And is there a good, free program for making soundfonts available? It cant be that hard making them, loading a few fonts in and tuning probably.

Try Muon DS404 sampler (shipped with Computer Music magazine)
16 parts multitimbral, 256 notes polyphony. Lots of cool banks on CM site and you can create your own multisampled patches too (with .wav/.aiff samples)

Thanks again ppl! Perkele, those soundfonts really sound like nothing else on my audigy 2 . Now I'd like to know if there are any good hardware midi-synths available that support soundfont? Would be so great for live playing . I mean just the box with sounds, I have a keyboard already. Oh man, my house has turned into Kölner döme.

check out Plogue Bidule.... It should allow you to use VST's in realtime with your MIDI keyboard... Of course this assumes that you have the cables to connect your keyboard to your PC....

Ok, i meant HARDWARE samplers . But np, I found my solution. This is really fantastic, hear me out; The corresponding format of soundfont in hardwareworld is DLS. Almost exactly the same functionality as sf2-files have. You can download them from the net, and here comes the best part: Audigy 2 supports dls-samples too!
Audigy 2 == <3 <3 <3 <3 . Recommend it to anyone, except those who cant get it to work because of creatives buggy drivers... I have a kind of hate-love relationship with Creative

I noticed Modplug Tracker uses *.DLS to play back midi files. It comes with an 8-bit general midi uh bank.

Maybe you know a higher quality version of such a file?

I'm talking about DLS2. Multi-layering etc. Check the specs here . I've never used modplug much but since the format was ready in the end of 2001, it could be DLS1 that modplug uses.. could be worth checking though.

//edit: I found an easy way to test your soundcards compatibility with DLS,here . I'm still not positive about DLS2 == SF2, might as well be... And still havent found a hardware sampler that can play DLS2. Maybe a notebook with audigy 2, could be the best option. Oh, and the sources are freely downloadable for these formats, just found out. And SF2 != DLS2 : at least what I can determine from here.
