Re: Making MP3s of NoteWorthy compositions (and audio CDS if you have a burner)

hmm. If I wanted to be a pedant, I would say that you set the sound fonts up in your sound card's software and then you select the banks and instruments thus provided in NWC... But only if I wanted to be a pedant
Actually, I take your point. I did simplify a bit more than reasonable.
To those wanting clarification, if you read Richards comments in the message prior to this one he gives a concise overview of what is required within NWC.
In order to make those selections available your synth must support the sound(s) you want. This is where the soundfont comes in. Assuming you have a soundcard that supports soundfonts then you load the fonts you require. If you have a softsynth capable of using soundfonts or vst modules you load them there instead. I cannot give you much guidence there as each card/softsynth will have its own tools... (and I haven't explored vst modules and synths that support them much yet anyway. That's a project for another day).
