Well, I've been playing around with SynthFont this weekend, and I thought I would post the fruits of my efforts. Here's "This Love" by Maroon 5 and "Bent" by Matchbox 20. Pop-rock at its best! I really like these bands, but they're not traditionally thought of as guitar bands, so backing tracks were hard to come by...I thought I'd take a shot.
I'd appreciate any feedback...I'm still new to this whole thing, so let me know what works and what doesn't work. I'm open to suggestions!
They're both directly from midi files I found, so the arrangements are a bit limited by the quality of the original compositions...I ended up removing a lot of additional tracks (beyond just guitar) because they sounded cheesy even with decent SoundFonts. I left some in...you'll know them when you hear them.
How do you all get around that? Just suck it up and remove that track before mixing down? Or are there SoundFonts that could make them sound decent? I turned the volume down and added some delay to the one at the end of the Maroon 5 song. That helped a bit, but it's still a little...ugh.
Anyway, here ya go!
