ZynAddSubFX is really easy to use software synthesizer which I’ve already featured in
ZynAddSubFX has a selection of instruments grouped into banks. Basically instruments are files with XIZ extension and banks – folders under:
To extend existing selection I’ve found some at rekkerd.org: folderol_zynaddsubfx_Collection.zip (256.6 kB).
Extract downloaded archive, create a folder under /usr/share/zynaddsubfx/banks (I’ve created “new”) and copy XIZ files there.
To select any of new instruments click menu Instrument > Show instrument bank, hit “Refresh bank list” and select your folder from drop-down list:
Unfortunately, I still can’t find Grand Piano file for ZynAddSubFX 😥 Anyone more lucky in that?
Thanks for directing me to more patches for this great synth. Looking for more orchestral strings as with general midi. Also want to work on creating my own patches. Good luck!
