I wrote the installer and configuration app.
Anyhow, I posted a message over at Hydrogen Audio forums, and the author said that he would see if he could fix the MIDI Yoke problem with the driver
Wow! Maybe that's the time I switch to a SW synth (versus the HW E-mu of kX Driver that seems almost abandoned with all its bugs). Thank you, Rich!
Could you talk me (us) through how you would set this up to be used from NWC?
I reckon it'd be a good idea to develop these instructions a little, perhaps with some screen shots, and submit to the Scripto. You'd get a wider audience too.
Thanks, Rich. Looks like I might actually try this later.
G'day Rich,format would be up to Richard Woodroffe. The couple of things I've submitted I sent in as PDFs. There is an installable device driver called PDFCreator that is free and has worked well for me. Acts as a printer device. Otherwise, I've also used OpenOffice which will output directly to PDF.Strikes me that this would be easier than going to the effort of a html page...
If you want to install the old program, that's your choice, but PDFCreator.exe is a quick free download from Sourceforge.net
Thanks for the heads-up
I was surprised when you said you used the distiller. Not many individuals do. It's usually a company thing, and, as I remember, not without its little foibles.
It was probably before all these "free" versions were around. I remember years ago wanting to produce a pdf and having to take the document to work to produce it.
If all else fails, simply Google for "weeds general midi soundfont v3.0"... you'll find it all over the Internet, as well as folks discussing it. In any case, the piano preset is suberb IMHO
that soundfont is awesome , it's great for making videogame music. But if you're just doing piano stuff, almost anything font will do
