If I were to make an efficient font that eliminated the need for pitch bends, this would no longer work correctly on a GM-Lite equipped mobile phone, would it? Even though making my own re-tuned font would be efficient, doing a little more work will make my compositions much more portable in the long run. I cannot expect to be able to load a custom font onto most off-the-shelf sub-smartphones.On Tue, Apr 16, 2013 at 11:17 AM, steve conrad <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:
Probably the most efficient work around is to make your own sound font
with the samples retuned to suit your purposes.
The midi note to sample mapping of a font doesn't really require you
to sound the note corresponding to the midi note number you've
selected. Percussion fonts are one obvious example of a font where
note number doesn't correspond to midi pitch.
An hour or two fiddling around with Swami and you should be up and running.
