General Chatter / Soundfonts and DLS files for Download
« Last post by Soundman on Today at 13:13:18 »
I just wanted to share some amazing sources of soundfonts, dls banks and sfz's that I have found on the internet

My favourite Soundfont is General User GS which is available at http://www.schristiancollins.com/generaluser.php and he also has sfz instruments.

I have found and interesting Soundfont called Colombo on Musical Artifacts website https://musical-artifacts.com/artifacts/1234 as well as the Colombo MT32 Soundfont https://musical-artifacts.com/artifacts?formats=sf2&tags=mt-32 these soundfonts are also found here at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDAQ7p7vm8ylmW5xYo629eQ there are many other soundfonts on Musical Artifacts as well as some dls sound banks but check license before download https://musical-artifacts.com/

Also check out Hed Sounds, there are various soundfonts here including an MT32 soundfont https://www.hedsound.com/ and https://sites.google.com/view/hed-sounds/aegean-symphonic-orchestra and https://sites.google.com/view/hed-sounds/salamander-c5-light

Don't forget to look at the Virtual playing Orchestra at http://virtualplaying.com/virtual-playing-orchestra/ and Soundfonts4U at https://sites.google.com/site/soundfonts4u/

Note that you can report duplicates on ModLand to the contacts mentioned in readme_welcome.txt at the root of the server. MO3 can remove a lot of "unnecessary" metadata but it doesn't guarantee to find every duplicate that went through the format conversions you mentioned, because MO3 stores data differently depending on what the original source format was (so e.g. a MOD converted to MO3 and then the same song converted from S3M to MO3 will not result in the same MO3 file).

I use mo3enc for xm\mod\it\s3m\mtm modules.
1) mo3enc -m4 -rmiso for files (no compression, remove any text in modules)
Wait time...
2) find duplicates in *.mo3
Wait time...
3) remove clone modules in original collection
I found a lot duplicates in modland in some formats (example, stm2mod or mod2stm or other 4-16k modules formats) and find many tracks in Keygen collection (who make music, authors).

Here's a current test build of Mod Library. After adding some files or folders to the database, you can hit the button for finding duplicates. Note that at the moment it will only show one file per duplicate, but for finding the actual duplicates it's at least a start. Hopefully later it would show all versions of a duplicate file.

Note that adding files to the database is relatively slow at the moment - adding 10,000 files can take about an hour or so - because it's single-threaded and an audio fingerprint is generated of every file. This allows to enter an AcoustID in the search and find songs that sound simliar to that AcoustID. However, the search results for that feature aren't that good yet, they find a lot of stuff that really is a completely different song IIRC.

I'll upload some binaries later today. As said, it's in alpha stage right now, and at this point I have no intent to keep backwards compatibility with previous database versions (I just recreate my own library whenever there's a breaking change) so I normally don't upload binaries for it, unless someone asks for them.

Finding duplicates by song name is probably rather useless - song names are far from unique, and many modules don't set a song title at all. Author information also not present at all in most modules.
I have been working on a tool on and off called Mod Library. I never had the time to bring it much beyond alpha stage, but I occasionally add new features. As it can already find files that are 100% identical, and as it already keeps track of all pattern contents, I can probably update it to also find modules with identical patterns, which I have found to be a very effective method of finding duplicate songs. I'll try to do that one of these days.
