New tutorial and opcode additions

Posted on by redtide

A new tutorial about subtractive synthesizers was shared by DSmolken’s sample instruments experience applied in the Caveman Cosmonaut sample library.
Some fixes and additions were made in our opcode database and in software as well, like the Windows OpenMPT music tracker by sagamusix.
New contributions was provided by other users like jisaacstone, and a big contribution from jpcima for the effects section.
Now we have also a new page for convenience that lists all opcodes present in our database.

New year, new work in progress

Posted on by redtide

The most relevant additions on the website for this month were Instruments and Modulations sections, adding slowly one by one some sample instruments libraries created and freely distribuited over the net, and documenting in a generic way the various modulations used in SFZ. Some new opcodes were also added in our database, starting from some modulation aliases like amplitude_ccN, pan_ccN and tune_ccN to the recent fil_gain. I would like to thank some people who contributed to the site, like falkTX for adding our news feed on Linuxaudio Planet, jpcima, MatFluor, PaulFd and sfw. This website is an opensource non profit project, I hope to see more people involved in the future to help make it grow.

Happy new year!

Here we are with the latest relevant updates, the last ones for this year:

  • Added *_mod and *_dynamic opcodes
  • Added Cakewalk SFZv2 opcodes (work in progress) page
  • Added the SFZ test suite for sample instruments developers in homepage
  • Improved SFZ syntax highlighting in Google Prettify for all pages
  • Search now works correctly, though it is slow and needs some more improvements

Happy new year!
