Two New Freeware Soundfont Players Available


If you’re still looking for a plugin to become your favorite Soundfont player VSTi, you’ll be up for a treat today!

DSK Music has released DSK SF2, a compact Soundfont player which can load one SF2 file of unlimited size per instance. With it’s easy to use interface and standard sound shaping controls, it could easily become one’s go-to Soundfont player for basic use.

Prodyon Virtual Gear released Phenome, an 8-part multitimbral Soundfont Player VSTi. Note that at least Windows XP with SP2 is needed to run this plugin.

  1. I tried them both, and while Phenome clearly wins GUI- and Feature-wise, the DSK plugin proved to be the more compatible one. With the prodyon plug I had several problems with accessing the different presets contained in the soundfonts, most of the time I could only play the first one. Now I’m using DSK SF2 and it seems to be fine!

      yeah, i like the simplicity of the DSK pluggie too. still using sfz for soundfonts though, but it’s just a habit i think.

  2. SFZ is a good and simple plugin, I just have one problem with it: I can’t use more than one instance of it in reaper, or it will produce some overload and weird noises… so these two plugins came just in the right moment!
