All the wavetable synths used in the game are included in one patch per sound. Just play with the velocity
sfz+ is the plugin I used to test the soundfonts and everything works perfectly there: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9fpn79sg7769x ... 1.exe?dl=0 (Just cause you have to go to the cakewalk store and sign up to download it)

Are there no plans to make a DKC3 soundfont?

EDIT: yeesh, my post read like a five year old's. That is what happens when you don't proofread.

I've started working on it, but I've become quite busy lately and it'll be on hold until probably January

Sorry about the bump, it's just that I was really excited to use these soundfonts, but I'm clueless on how to do it. I've spent hours stumbling around the internet trying to figure out how to use an SF2 in a MIDI sequencer, and nothing really seems to make sense. :headache: The sequencer I use is Anvil Studio, but is there another program that handles SF2s much more simply? Or do I have the wrong idea altogether about how these are supposed to be used? Please help!

You'll need an external plugin to play soundfonts in Anvil Studio. I recommend SFZ+ https://www.dropbox.com/s/9fpn79sg7769x ... 1.exe?dl=0. I used it to test the soundfonts and it works perfectly with them

Thanks, after downloading it and reading a bit of Anvil Studio's tutorial, it worked perfectly! I guess I just was too confused earlier to wrap my head around all of the SFZs, VSTs, etc., and what they all meant, but I'm glad it turned out to be something I can understand. :)

EDIT: After a bit of tinkering around, I whipped up this SNES version of my favorite Donkey Kong Land theme, Tricky Temple.

Thanks for putting these soundfonts together, BlueTronic! If you ever get around to a DKC3 soundfont, I'd really like to try making David Wise's DKC3 GBA songs in SNES style. :dixiehappy: :kiddycool:

So when I started this project I had this "movie release" mindset of hogging it all to myself until it's done. Now I've been working on the DKC3 soundfont sparsely, because I've been busy with other things, and I'm not even sure when I'll get it done.
So, screw it. I'm just going to go ahead and link the folder I've been working from to make these soundfonts: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/g70cosiqz1ts ... Fz8ga?dl=0
The DKC3 soundfont is only half done, but the raw samples ripped from the ROMs are all there. So if you're tech savvy, you could really just make use of the .wavs

You're welcome. It's what I do :swanky:

Tricky Temple is one of my favorite Wise man tracks! Sounds like you've got a good arrangement down so far. I would get a little more creative with panning and velocity echo.

Any hope of completing the DKC3 soundfont by its 20th anniversary?

The download of the soundfonts is gone. Does anybody have another file of it that they can upload?

Does anybody have soundfonts for the sound effects of the trilogy? I don't know if soundfonts exist for the trilogy, but I figured I'd ask. Also, I do know that there are wav and mp3 versions.

My bad. It's back up

Sound effects are not really useful to put in soundfonts because they are not melodic. You might as well just use the samples. All a soundfont does is assigns different samples to different keys and velocities with loop points and etc. You could use a soundfont to assign each sound effect to a different key and have all the sound effects in one file, that's about it
The sound effects are all made up of the instruments just like the music is but you can't really sequence them together in a soundfont

Thank you! The request for SFX soundsound was at the request of my boyfriend, but I'll send him the link to this thread so he can see what you said.

Well, since it's been an awfully long time since someone uploaded a DKC soundfont remix/original song, I thought I would go ahead and share with you guys what I made last night. It's Phil Collins' In the Air Tonight, with DKC2 samples. Enjoy! :D

Sorry if it doesn't give you that Bayou Boogie vibe (and the synths being one pitch higher). I tried my best.
