I have to mention something important i don't see people talk about and that "Manu" (previous comment) is one of the rare person i saw talking about. What people like me want is a sf2 player that can, at least... ...correctly read sf2 files. The problem is that there are a lot of good sounding instruments made from sound designers in sf2 files that are "multi-layered" or something like that, and i didn't find ANY sf2 players plugin u can use on any DAW (free or not) that can read them correctly (try to load layered sf2 files through the scorewriter "Musescore" who can read them perfectly, then try with any sf2 players plugin like DSK SF2, u will see the difference).

Tout d'abord, ce qu'on demande à un lecteur de SF2, c'est de rendre aussi fidelement que possible le timbre des instruments échantillonnés. Malheuresusement, ce n'est pas le cas ici, loin s'en faut. En fait, tout semble indiquer que les SF2 importés sont soumis à un ré-échantillonage à un taux bien plus bas que celui d'origine (44.1 kHz d'habitude). Je suis étonné qu'il n'y aie plus de remarques à ce sujet, car cela rend ce plugin inutilisable.

Hey man, great work (again) could you may make a VST-Plugin for Celtic / Medival music? I'd love to have some sounds like Adrian von Ziegler, he's a celtic music artist and makes great songs. Please make a celtic Plugin.

For free, it's definitely a pretty good little plugin. It doesn't get the best sound out of the SoundFonts (not sure why there'd be variation in SF players like that, but maybe I just don't know enough about them), but you can work around it decent enough. However, I have to warn/point out that it, like most DSK plugins (apparently), has technical problems. The biggest one is that it tends to crash during render in FL Studio 10. It works great for playback (no lag or performance issues), but it's really disappointing to render an awesome project with tons of layers and only get the couple tracks that weren't SoundFonts. :( If you don't get that issue (or know how to fix it), great. I'd love to know your secret. But, otherwise, just be warned that it may only work for your playback/writing needs.
