Getting all notes from a soundfont - Audacity? Answered
What I'm trying to do is to generate a set of MP3 files for various instruments (including synthesized sounds) at each key of the chromatic scale over 2 octaves. The brute-force method is to dig out the cheap old midi keyboard from the loft, put it through a software synth and record, note by note.
However, I've just discovered Soundfonts which are a packaged set of samples at some (but not all) notes in the octave for an instrument which are used to generate a full sample set for a synth. This would appear to be a method which will give a better result for less effort. Audacity apparently can do things with soundfonts, but will it allow me to generate a full scale? Is there other (Windows) software available which will do what I'm after?
