Since BM3’s sampler is a proper one, it would be great if it could read a few formats. Especially SF2 since there’s tons of samplefont libraries out there for grabs. Akai, SFZ, & .nki would be cool too.
Agreed! I've been requesting this since day 1.
It would be AWESOME!
Yepp, proper SF2 support (without the need to import/convert) with preset selection could be handy.
This way we could use the 'SF2 banks' and select the sounds using program-change.
Another option would be to load the SF2 'bank' to a 'bank' where each pad pointed to a 'preset/patch' in the SF2 file. If the SF2 file contains more than 128 presets an additional bank is created. 'Keys' mode could then be used to play up to 128 instruments in a bank. (And well, bring back the option to 'explode' a banks pads into separate tracks in the arranger).
A 3rd one would be an additional 'pad mode' (Ie. Plug-In, Sampler, Midi Only & SF2).
We'll see where things go
