Hi

I have a big collection of soundfonts and I have many problems when I try to use them by my creative titanium Soundcard because they are huge in size ( over 4 Giga bytes ! )

so my question
is there a keyboard just for importing SF2 files or even other formats AKAI ,GIGA ,Kontakt


I want device with a big built-in memory card to import my samples and
add controllers & effects like reverb , chorus . & distortion ....

then I can easily use my soundfonts in Sonar Cakewalk sequencer software

sorry if my question seems too ametuerish or primitive :roll:

Nope, there's no keyboard for that. In Sonar, you can load the soundfonts in Phenome, Akai formats in Shortcircuit, Giga in LinuxSampler or GVI, and Kontakt files in..Kontakt

Are you trying to load all 4GB at once? In what sampler?

Sounds like you need to get more RAM for your computer and maybe you need to update your driver(s) for the sound card if it "make sounds come with some bugs and noise" ;-).

Something in your setup isn't optimised, obviously.
If it were easy, anybody could do it!

A hardware sampler or a samplermodule maybe - AKAI, Kurzweil etc.

There are various converters to/from different formats.

As software samplers pretty much killed off hardware samplers, then your not going to find anything remotely close to what your after. Hardware samplers had megabytes of ram, not gigabytes and they used old style ram (72pin SIMM iirc) so its not just a matter of sticking larger capacity sticks in it.

As stated, get a software sampler like kontakt working correctly and it will do what you want. Disk stream the samples rather than loading the lot into ram.

The only 'hardware' option I can think of is something like Receptor which is a kind of pc anyway.
No, that Glitch is meant to be there.....

Which version of Sonar? If you use the sfz plugin, which has been part of Sonar for quite a long time now, it will load soundfonts. If you're using an old version which doesnt include it, you can get it here:

AFAIK in the new Yamaha Motif XF you could use up to 4 GB of fast and non-volatile Flash memory but of course both the Motif and the Flash modules (max. 2 GB for one module) are quite expensive.

My "old" Yamaha Motif ES 7 got 512 MB of volatile SDRAM. Anyway it could not use soundfonts AFAIK but has no big problems using WAV files.
