FPD98

This is a SoundFont of a shareware Japanese software synthesizer of the 90's, called FPD98. The software synthesizer FPD98 contains many additional functions, such as:

  • Composing music using its own MML syntax implementation
  • MIDI/RCP/WAV playback, including the FPD format
  • Conversion of MIDI/RCP to the propietary format "FPD"
  • Sampling/editing PCM tone waveform data files (FPV) using PE98
  • etc.

For MIDI/RCP/FPD playback, it uses a variety of PCM tone waveforms. The tone waveform data is created based on a license agreement with KORG Corporation. FPD98 has a built-in software effector for MIDI and RCP playback that is compatible with MIDI CCs (chorus, reverb, etc.) as well as MMX effects. PCM waveform and envelope data (ADSR, looop points, etc.) are stored in FPV files. I converted FPV files to wav, and recreated the loop points and envelopes.

The reason why I made this SoundFont is because:

  1. MIDI and RCP data can't be played for more than 30 seconds, as a restriction of the shareware limitations.
  2. I can't buy it.

Note 1: In the original software synthesizer, some programs have tempo-dependent vibrato (this means that vibrato will be faster or slower, depending on the tempo in which the sequence is in) sadly, in the SoundFont format isn't possible to do that. :( Yeah, I did put vibrato in some preset just to make them sound (at least a little bit) decent.
Note 2: FPV files (that I converted to WAV to make the SoundFont) can contain 8-bit or 16-bit PCM data, so if you hear quantization noise in some presets, it is because the sound uses 8-bit PCM data.
