FOUND A NEW PLAYGROUND!!

I have been waiting and waiting for this place to come back online or at least be accessible to my computer. And i'm glad they did. Many of these VSTi's you may have already DL'd, but i haven't.

Especially visit the DSK download section. That's a gold mine in itself!! Now if these acoustic sounds are halfway decent i can finally put my symphonies together!

If you already knew about it, then ignore me! But i definitely wanna let the newbies know!! :P

This looks like an excellent way to shoehorn soundfonts into openMPT - at least I'm not aware of another - especially a free way - to use soundfonts.

so then one can use these gigs of free soundfonts

Now if only openMPT could drive VSTi's in alternate tunings...

no need to abuse redtron for this. there are at least two free soundfont players that work with openMPT: sfz and some other that i don't remember.

one seems to be a 404 though

Is retuning VSTi's in open MPT even a remote possibility Jojo?

I'll contribute the best $200 I've spent - actually I was able to get it for less than retail at an online dealer - so it was under $200 delivered.

Many of my releases feature this sample set.

Certainly not in the way how it's done with samples. Always remember, VSTis get their note data through MIDI, and MIDI only transfers notes, not frequencies.

If I can get information on how other VSTi's and DAW's do it could this be considered for openMPT?

There seems to be several ways to do it - but the best is when the VSTi handles it natively.

Tuning is certainly not on my priority list, so I'm the wrong to ask.

Relabsoluness did the other tuning stuff I think. You could also ask the feature request forum ;)

I wonder why nobody posted it yet as quite a few people here seem to use it, but I'll post it now so that even more people know about it. =)

Name of VST: String Theory v1.5
This VST does: Emulate any kind of strings and strings-alike instruments
Quality: Seems very good to me, and also very inspiring.
License of this VST (and costs): Freeware
Link to VST or site: http://www.ugoaudio.com/

Name of VST: Rez v2.0
This VST does: Synth stuff, I found it very good for synth basses
Quality: Well, yet another softsynth. I found the presets of this one also very inspiring, and you seem to be able to do a lot of great stuff with it. However, it seems to cause OpenMPT to stutter every now and then.
