Explanation of the idea with SoundFonts

October 12, 2009

You know I’m going to add exporting to MIDI files in one of next versions. This will allow users to import SoundGrid Grids into any other DAW and each layer will become MIDI track.┬áBut this will not give you the same sound output without samples from soundbanks that were used in original Grid.

So I’m going to create SoundFont files matching all my soundbanks. Then you can assign appropriate SoundFonts to MIDI tracks (DAWs have either built-in support for SoundFonts or plugins) and hear the same sound. Unfortunately filters and effects can’t be exported/imported but I think this solution is still better than nothing.
