[ddots-l] Re: AW: Re: Is a sempler useble for blind people?

OK sorry about that, but I realise now I think what I should have done. I have now typed: <region> sample=chime.wav

However, I don't know how to use the SfZ player in sonar still.

Thanks again.

O yes the good old sound forge midi triggers...if you still wanna go that
route, try checking midi imputs and outputs in soundforge, maybe in options?
I'm not sure, never tried it myself, though I will get around to it
sometime...
However the site I gave is the sfz format site, sfz is a new sample format,
like giga, soundfont, halion etc, which you use a text editor like notepda,
write your samples definitions, place the samples along with the definition
file in a directory, and load the definition file in to the sfz player,
which ships with sonar 5 but which is also available on the sfz site, then
your samples will trigger from your midi device, depending on how you
defined them in the definition file. It was made for ppl like myself and
many others, who are half musicians, half programmers etc lol, once you
learn the concept of the tags and how to use them you will be on your way,
if you need help with it, let me know and we can do a little talk on
something, me you and whoever else is interested in this sfz stuff, I heard
of it fro Gorden Kent, and from there I flew with it, however I'm sure he
can also give you guys a hand on whatever I don't know...
The advantage of sfz is that it's a text based coding standard, so we don't
have to go using the mouse to edit parameters on unaccessible sampler
screens, we can write tags and values to controll envelopes filters and
anything else we like!
If ya got more questions, fire away!


HTH, DJX

Hi, thanks for the information. My mind is boggling. I will try and explain
what I know.


I have sound forge on my computer as well as sonar. I understand in sound
forge there is a way of inserting and creating regions and I have attempted
to work it out to play samples via my keyboard. For example, I have a wave
file loaded up called chime.wav. It is a single bell chime sound. I then
select all with control A. I then go to insert region. it says name 01. I
keep it at that. It has the start time, finish time, and length of my
sample. I then select "Midi note on play" as I assume this is what I want. I


then press ok. I then play the keyboard and nothing happens. Obviously this
what I am doing is totally wrong, but I don't understand what the website
you pointed me to is saying. It explains what to do but not in which
program.


Sorry for my ignorance. I am grateful for the help.

Hi! I am very keen to develop music using samplers. So far I have had to
use

my bad quality mono sampler on my keyboard. Can you explain how to get my
wave files in to the SFZ format. I would be emencely greatful if you could
help with this as I have been trying to trigger waves or convert to midi
for


ages.
