How Soundfonts Can Enhance Your Music Production in FL Studio

Virtual instruments and pre-made loops are not the only tools a music producer has the option of using in FL Studio to create great instrumentals. Soundfonts provide great benefits in creating instrumetals as well.

An often overlooked option to add musical instrument sounds to your instrumentals are soundfonts. Soundfonts are sound files labeled with the ".sf2" extension that are created by using several WAV audio files and mapping them out so that when a person loads up a soundfont and uses their piano keyboard or computer keyboard, the keys will play various notes. Though soundfonts may be overlooked, they can be beneficial in several ways to use in creating instrumentals or beats of all kinds.

Soundfonts for one, drain less on computer power as they are smaller files when comparing them to virtual instrument plugins. For example, you may need to add an acoustic piano instrument into your instrumental. While you may have a special virtual instrument plugin that may achieve this, the size of it may be massive and drain on computer power. The soundfont however, can deliver great sound in a smaller size file, so loading it up tends to run more smoothly.

Another benefit of soundfonts is the cost in comparison to some of the more established virtual instruments available. While a soundfont may not completely mimic a virtual instrument in terms of articulation, it can still deliver a very powerful sound and will cost a lot less to your pocket than a virtual instrument will cost.

Another beneficial quality of soundfonts in comparison to pre-made loop kits or WAV files, is the ease of loading a soundfont. Imagine having to load up several WAV files of a violin to try to recreate the authenticity of the instrument. Loading up several WAV files would be a headache whereas with a soundfont, only one file of a violin instrument would be loaded, making setup in FL Studio much easier.

Soundfonts used to be a tool of the past, before the prospect of virtual instruments came into the picture. However, soundfonts still prove to be very useful today. if you search the internet, you'll find a great variety of free soundfonts, as well as soundfonts to purchase, that will elevate your instrumentals or music production in general. And with the ability to add effects to the channels they're being used on in FL Studio, you can create an even greater tool than you imagined. Soundfonts are, and still prove to be very valuable today.
