I started using Synthedit to create my first VSTi. For those of you who don’t know what the heck a VSTi is:
A VSTi is a sound generating program that runs inside a host program (like Sonar, Cubase, Logic, Sibelius …) to create a tone. VSTi’s have been created to emulate and/or simulate pretty much every instrument known.
I couldn’t find one for Toy Piano. I needed one for the song “Kaboom!”.
I did, however, find a site that had chromatic samples of a toy piano. They were recorded well so I hacked each note out and started learning Synthedit today.
This is what I have so far:
I’m about halfway done so far. I don’t know if I’m doing it right, but it works in Sonar! This is what the interface looks like:
I’ll post the file for the VSTi as soon as I get all 25 notes embedded.
The file will be pretty big – It used 24 16 bit-44.1khz wav files
It’ll go up before the end of the week….
