    Free Acoustic Guitar Soundfont

    Sign in to disable this ad
    After months of trying to find a high quality Acoustic Guitar Soundfont (sf2) I decided in the end to make my own based on the quality samples provided by Keith Smith Keith Smith.ca - Home (thank you so much Keith!)
    Presets include Steel, Nylon and 12 String Guitars. I've also modified and included a couple of other freely available guitars to provide a broad choice of acoustic sounds.
    The uncompressed file is 88mb while the zipped download is 46mb. Download from here:

    [Edit now linked to my webpage which will be updated from time to time]
    Cheers and hope you enjoy.

    Nice job again John, i had missed a good steal guitar sound, my favourite are the "expressive" and the "finger pick".
    Here is my little contribution with some nylon guitar samples that i have collected from the soundfont
    free market.
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0X...ew?usp=sharing (22.4 mo uncompressed)
    You are welcome to edit them if you feel for it and think there is a possible improvement to make with these samples.
    Cheers, Eric

    Thanks Eric,
    I have now included 2 of them in the newest version 2.1 (just updated the above link). I really liked the Tyros Nylon and Nylon 2 so I've modified them a little to include versions with a bit more playing expression. The Tyros turned out particularly nice.
    Thanks again.
    John

    Very nice John!
    I like your tyros preset but even more the softer "nylon 2 expressive" which fits more the brazilian music i use nylon guitar for.
    Looking forward to your next project!
    (soprano sax would be great, the ones i have are ok but too "airy/breathy", without body/punch/attack)
    Whatever instrument it is i will see again if a corresponding sf2 sample i have is worth being proposed to you to be possibly included among your presets.
    Cheers,
    Eric

    So, do you guys know each other and in cahoots to spamming this stuff? Seems only you two are interested...

    Please tell me I am wrong in the assumption.

    Sweden and Australia are quite a distance, but proxy servers can hide that. As you both(?) know...

    5 minutes til this explodes... Actually, I'll wait for a response.

    Jimmy,
    I know nothing about proxy servers and nothing about Eric except he is the only one so far with the courtesy of replying.

    Nice Jimmy...... I really wonder, are you moderators moderating each other if it happens that one of you comes with something, how can i put in a mild fashion, "not very clever" ?

    John, i'll be on Kvr and Gearslutz forums with the same user pseudo, talk to you there hopefully, eventualy for your same nice project, in a healthier "atmosphere".

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    See you at Gearslutz it looks a bit friendlier. I would have thought "Hi and welcome to the forum" would have been a better introduction.

    I will be clear here why I posted what I did.

    Both of you new members subscribed to this forum the same month/year and have only spoken to each other since. No replies to other members topics.

    That sends a flag to me that it is a simple planned spam topic. Would you not see that?
