.sf2 soundfont conversion not working in GarageBand X

Postby TWHansen » Mon Feb 29, 2016 5:28 pm

Was excited to try Sforzando as GarageBand X has lost the capabilty to switch between individual instrument voices in .sf2 banks, but the .sf2 to .sfz converter function isn't working for me - every time I import an .sf2 file it gives me this message:

ARIA Import

Cannot import ******.sf2
Converter was unsuccessful.


I've tried this with all 92 soundfonts I have... not sure what to do now

This is because of the sandboxing "feature" of GarageBand which prevents to do some things.
What you could and that would work is to use the standalone version of sforzando and convert all the sf2 you wish to use,
they will all show up in the instrument menu afterwards in GarageBand.
