Introduction




What is a SoundFont and what are its benefits




A SoundFont is a file format that contains samples of musical instruments or sounds, arranged by notes or folders, that can be played back by a computer's sound card or synthesizer. SoundFonts enhance MIDI playback, because they include actual digitized sound waves stored in wave tables, instead of just describing how the sound should be heard. SoundFonts were developed in the early 1990s by E-mu Systems and Creative Labs.


The benefits of using a SoundFont are:


  • You can access a wide range of sounds from different instruments, genres, and styles.



  • You can save space and money by using one file instead of multiple sample libraries.



  • You can easily switch between different sounds without loading new files.



  • You can edit and customize the sounds to suit your preferences and needs.



  • You can create your own sounds by sampling or importing other sources.



What is the Ensoniq TS-10 synthesizer and what are its features




The Ensoniq TS-10 was a synthesizer and music workstation introduced by Ensoniq in 1993. It provided synthesis, user sample playback, sequencer, effect units and performance facilities in a 61-key package. Another version, the TS-12, had the same features plus 76 weighted keys and channel aftertouch courtesy of a Fatar keybed, whereas the TS-10 had polyphonic aftertouch and 61 unweighted keys.


The main features of the Ensoniq TS-10 synthesizer were:


  • 32 voices of polyphony, integrated 24-bit effects engine, a 30,000 note sequencer (expandable to over 100,000 via memory chips) which featured up to 24 tracks, full MIDI capabilities.



  • A ROM bank with 6 MB of samples from various acoustic instruments, synth waves, percussion and sound effects.



  • A single patch called a "Sound" that could be made from combining up to six waves. Each "Sound" could have up to two envelopes, each with its own filter, amplifier, LFO and modulation matrix.



  • A multi-timbral mode called a "Preset" that could combine up to eight "Sounds" in a layer or split configuration. Each "Preset" could have its own effects settings and keyboard zones.



  • A user sample RAM bank with 2 MB of memory (expandable to 8 MB) that allowed users to load their own samples via floppy disk or SCSI. The samples could be used as waves in the "Sounds" or as drum kits in the sequencer.



  • A disk drive that could store and load sounds, presets, sequences, samples and MIDI files.



  • A 240 x 64 pixel backlit LCD display that showed the parameters and settings of the synthesizer.



  • A pitch bend wheel, a modulation wheel, a data slider, four soft buttons, a numeric keypad and a cursor pad for controlling the synthesizer.
