When you play the Purcussive Organ on note G#/Ab2 and A2, they sound way too high, like D5 and D#/Eb5.

Confirmed. It seems like not just the usual issue of overtones being too pronounced, it seems like just plain the wrong pitches, just for those two notes.

Yes indeed s.chriscollins: it seems you need to be careful and watch exactly what Polyphone puts into its value fields before your commit your changes. It looks like 'zeros' ('0's) can be inserted into blank fields when that's not exactly what you mean. The solution/workaround is to check every input field in Polyphone and confirm it contains what you mean before you commit the screen to the file, so to speak.
I've found this as a general rule with Polyphone: check every field to make sure it contains exactly what you need (e.g. blank vs. '0' for instance) before committing your change.
Tricky little things to be aware of, but nothing you can't sort out once you know what's going on - just make sure your final screen contains the exact values you want for your sound fount before you commit your changes to the file.

Fix version 3.3.3

Seems fixed, at least I get the new 1.8 soundfont when building myself and the PR builds on Transifex and AppVeyor do too. So it'll be fixed in 3.3.3 (and will be in the next development build).

HQ soundfont (for updating via resource manager) will follow shortly
