What are SoundFonts?
SoundFonts are files that contain recorded audio samples of various musical instruments. A “pure” synthesizer would not use any recorded sound. It would create sound electronically, using different parameters to imitate instruments. Sampling synthesizers are different. They take a recorded sample and reuse it at different pitches and dynamic levels. Quality of sound depends here mainly on how many samples per instrument were recorded.
