Keyboards and Soundfonts

Keyboards and Soundfonts.

Anyone who is interested in music, at a time of his life, definitely bought a keyboard.
My first keyboard was Roland D20.
Then there were many keyboard and sound modules.
For example:

just a few of them.

I've met a little late with virtual instrument banks that have been used in computers for many years.
Some of them are sound-fonts, some are VST instruments and some are working as modules.

In recent years, the (and especially Musescore's interest in voice) soundfonts are popular.
Of course, you can also use these soundfonts in Sibelius or Finale.

Or you can have a system-wide virtual synthesizer using Virtual-Midi-Synth.

Although there is no compiled binary software for Windows; Fluidsynth software from other sources will be useful.

On this site, I present some of the soundfonts I have prepared.
However, there are documents, computational tables and articles for those how to  prepare best soundfonts.

I also add mscx demos and MIDI files for soundfonts. They're getting ready.

I wish you enjoyable readings.

* I used the free screen capture software "OBS-Studio" for demo videos on the site.
