Grace 64 bit
City Piano SFZ version from http://bigcatinstruments.blogspot.co.uk/
There are four sfz files:
City Piano (Lite)...loads OK
Full City Piano...loads OK
ShootThe Piano (Lite)... get 'Value is not an integer' error message trying to load.
Shoot The Piano... get 'Value is not an integer' error message trying to load.
There is one folder of samples (used by all four sfz files).
All four files load OK in Plogue Sforzando.
Could it be that there is some info in the two 'shoot the piano' files that Grace can't understand?
I've downloaded City Piano and grace is now working fine with that version. (It wasn't originally for me.)
What's the download link for "shoot the piano" SFZ? I've looked through the page but can't see it.
Ah, I see that the link I gave you leads to his latest version which indeed is just one City Piano sfz file . I just looked back through my notes and realize that I got it from the following link (in the first post, 'SFZ thanks to Music Mayor'):
http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic … 2&t=400592
This link still downloads the four sfz files I mentioned above (zipped within a 'City Piano' folder), however, it seems that he (Bigcat) was not entirely happy with these... a couple of days ago on a thread of his on the Reaper Forum I referred him to my topic here and he replied:
"The Shoot the Piano is mentioned. It's a very odd beast which is trying to emulate the honky tonk piano with layers of detuned samples and offset samples. I think it is beyond Grace's capabilities, plus I don't think it really works quite right as a honky tonk anyway so not that big a loss."
You might want to have a look at that thread anyway, it's about converting SFZ to lpg.
So perhaps it's not worth worrying about 'shoot the piano'?
Shannon, something else regarding City Piano.
The version you downloaded has group 5 which consists of mechanical key release noises (The older versions did not).
If you look at the sfz text you'll see that this group has volume -35.
It seems that Grace is not picking this up and is playing these noises far too loudly.
Thanks for the links Clueless. I'll still look at fixing the bug. It's likely to show up again with other SFZ files.
I've just fixed the "value is not an integer" bug. SFZ import now also applies the group volume. Thanks for reporting the problems Clueless.
Grace 32bit version 22.214.171.124
Grace 64bit version 126.96.36.199
Thanks Shannon, both bugs fixed.
BTW, in your post above you've referred to Poise rather than Grace (the downloaded files are named correctly so no problem, but you'll probably want to mend this anomaly).
Thanks again, great stuff.
