Do you mean layering several soundfonts at once like this:

Soundfont1.sf2
Soundfont2.sf2
Soundfont3.sf2
Soundfont4.sf2

resulting in one instrument. I guess that is not possible but hmm, how about using several instances of SFZ assigned to the same midi channel. This is just an idea but maybe it works.

Or do you mean layered instruments? You can edit soundfonts with Vienna Soundfonst Studio2 (free).

Hmm, I hope I could help you anyway.

i mean layered instruments...

for example i have nice drumkit, there is many samples and 5 layers if i remember well, coz some samples have several versions, like snare could be played softer or stronger, there is a 5 version of snare, each of them are placed on another layer

seems like i can load only first (soft) layer

I was having problems with soundfonts too, seems like only two (!!) samples are loaded, tested with layered drumfonts only so far...

Maybe that has something to do with layering too.

well if layering doesn't work soundfonts are pretty much useless in my opinion. I haven't had time to test it yet...

If you'd read the faq on the official site you'd know why it doesn't work Wink

Could you allow multiple SoundFonts to be loaded?

We have a version of sfz featuring multiple SoundFont files. It's called sfz+.
It allows loading up to 16 SoundFont (or Wave) files in a single instance for multitimbral, velocity/keyboard splitting or layering them. And it's very inexpensive.

What are you guys talking about, ofcourse you can play layered instruments with the free soundfont player.

Here is from the site info for the free player:
256 voices of polyphony, unlimited layers per voice.

Yes unlimited samples. We're talking about the layering of soundfonts here.
