Making soundfont; advice for looping?
Hi everybody, I'm making a guitar/bass soundfont with my own samples (Using amp modeling plugins from ignite amps-- great stuff!) and I want to know what you guys think:
How is polyphone's auto-loop feature? I've been using it because I suck at looping things myself, but of course it makes plenty of errors, so I'm looking for advice about how to loop my samples.
Also: any general advice? Tutorials or links to send me to? What does the MuseScore community want from an electric guitar soundfont? My goal is to make something I can use to write metal with a little more fidelity to the sound, but I can make anything from a clean sound to a jazz sound or metal or rock sound. I'm currently planning to do distortion guitar, overdrive guitar, palm mute, guitar harmonics, and maybe a new 'dead notes' sound. Well, I've got cheap instruments but I think I can do a good job and I want some feedback about what people want.
I'm doing this in my free time but I'll post a link to it when I'm done, along with the custom instruments.xml I use so I can switch voices on guitar (Like for palm muting). At any rate, I need advice about looping the samples.
