Is there anyone who is writing SFZ code using Visual Studio Code?  With this stay at home order I see an opportunity to try my hand at this.  I kinow NOTHING about coding, but I would like to experiment w/ the many early SFZ and SF2 files I have, but don't use.  EMU Proteus 2 etc.  OR, a list of places that have tutorials going from simple to complex coding.  The latter are sorely missing w/ youtube.  The majority I found tend to assume you are a knowledgeable coder.

 

Thanks

Willard

I use vs code daily for type and java script. I connect to oracle with it. 

Vs code is a branch of atom. Idk if you have any advantage for using it over atom.

Java has libraries for dealing with SF2 - not sure about SFZ. 

What I do know is SF2 is a minefield for even an experienced programmer... but the Java libraries certainly make it easier to deal with.

Sfz takes no special editor.

They are text files with tags similar in appearance to XML.

Most of the sfz files I have created were based on existing files and the relevant chapters in Simon Cann's "Cakewalk Synthesizers." Thousands of sfz files were included in SONAR. CbB still includes the sfz-based Studio Instruments.

There are quite a few threads in the old forum on the subject.

Here is a link that may be helpful https://sfzformat.com/

SF2 is a completely different beast.
