I folks;
Searched and can't find how to import more than one SF2 file at a time into TX16WX .
I have some Roland D-50 SF2 files (64 of them) that I'd like to download into the program. I hit the yellow folder icon, but it seems to only allow one at a time.
They are in a folder, so I'd like to be able scroll thru them (ie patch 1, patch 2, patch 3, etc) like you're able to do in other VST instruments.

Is this possible? Am I missing something?

Thanks
Mike

Drag and drop them from either file explorer or the TX file list. Each SF2 is imported as a performance, and each preset becomes a program.
However, it might be easier for you to just open them in the file list (they open like a folder), then enable preview loading which allows you to temporarily load a preset into a program slot, test play etc.

Elcallio,
Thanks for the info. I opened the file browser button on the left. clicked the folder and see all the SF2 files. These are Trinity patches.
I turned on (so they turn orange) the 'auto play' button and the 'preview load selected files'.
If I highlight an SF2 file, I hear nothing. If I scroll up or down using the keyboard "up/down" buttons, no sound.

The only way to hear a sound is highlight it, double click it and click it again. It then loads the ONE SF2 file and I can hear it. So I would have to do this 100 times to load every sound?

What am I missing? I should be able highlight and click once on the file to hear it, or scrool down through the folder and hear them quickly. . This in not happening.

Help!

Double clicking a SF2 file should open it as a folder. You can then select individual presets to test load them.
Here is a demo:

Hmm,
My sf2 fonts are not doing anything when I click on them as your video shows; I have to double click to have just one sf2 file load.
I changed some settings, but that didn't help either. I'm using the free version, could that be it?

here's a screenshot of the settings:

And the editor:

Free version should be fine.
Double clicking a SF2 should open it as folder. If it does not, something is not kosher. Can you send one of your soundfonts so I can see if it is weird?

The forum will not allow an .SF2 file to be uploaded. Can you PM me an email address to send it to?

Thanks

Sorry for the delayed response. The SF2 you sent works just fine; I can browse and pre-load from it just as in the nice animated example above.

Thanks for checking it out elcallio;
I reported the issue to Presonus to see if it's a Studio One problem.
They are looking into it.

Mike
