cross-platform SoundFont editor


Polyphone is an open-source soundfont editor, available for platforms supported by Qt5 (GNU/Linux, MacOS X, Windows). It can be used to create musical instruments by putting together a multitude of audio samples and configure them appropriately, which can then be used by synthesisers such as FluidSynth (also in MuseScore) and Timidity and played using a MIDI keyboard or other instrument.
