SoundFont Technology Taken To The Limit?


Buying Choices
Yesterday we brought you the news story about SONiVOX MI (formerly Sonic Implants) releasing two 24-bit Soundfont banks and today they have unveiled one of the most monumental General MIDI banks ever produced for download, the 250MB General MIDI (GM) SoundFont bank.
SONiVOX say that this new product takes SoundFont technology to the limit and that it offers consumers a seismic breakthrough in instrument quality and diversity by boosting the default GM sound banks on many Sound Blaster cards and other synthesizers from 4MB to 250MB.
Instrument sounds for the 250MB bank were specifically selected from SONiVOX’ legendary Complete Symphonic Collection, used by such Hollywood composers as Hans Zimmer (Pirates of the Caribbean II soundtrack), to create music for world-class movie, music and television projects.
Al Joelson, SONiVOX MI Director of Sales told Sonicstate, "Our original jump from 4MB to the 24MB bank was amazing, but today’s leap to 250MB is like moving from apartment to Hollywood mansion. Compared to the average GM bank, this bank is so gargantuan in terms of both quantity and quality, it dwarfs anything previously available in the SoundFont format.�
