smsfimport - SpectMorph SoundFont importer


smsfimport - program to create SpectMorph models from SoundFont presets


smsfimport <command> <SoundFontFile> [OPTIONS] [ <command specific args>... ]


smsfimport can be used to convert SoundFont presets (.sf2 format) to SpectMorph instruments (.smset format). Since it does not implement all of the functionality provided by SoundFonts, the resulting files can sound different than the original SoundFont, and in some cases the import will fail completely.


smsfimport follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes ('-').

  • -h, --help
    Shows a brief help message.
  • -v, --version

dump <SoundFontFile> [ <PresetName> ]

import <SoundFontFile> <PresetName>

Imports a preset, creating a *.smset file. For preset "Grand Piano", the resulting output would be "grand_piano.smset".
