Hi guys I wanted to know what is the correct way to install Soundfonts on an External Hard Drive?
I can set a directory folder but it doesn't seem like the same thing. Cuz Fruity has a default sound font folder where it knows everything in that folder are going to be .Sf2 files.
First things first, hit the 'Reread' button (sort of like a refresh button) on your browser (it's a tiny button with an arrow pointing left, found at the top of the browser... alternatively hit Ctrl+R when the browser is selected). This should make any files that FL missed show up in the browser.
If it doesn't, then make sure file type of your soundfonts is .sf2. I'm saying this because it could be .sfz or .sfark, for instance. Those file types are special types of compressed soundfonts which will have to be opened with the free sfark or sfz programs.
If you're certain they're .sf2, make sure the files aren't hidden in the directory, make sure you're setting the right directory in FL and make sure the site where you're getting the soundfonts from is a trusted source, since it might be giving corrupted files. If you're not sure if the site is legit, try copy-pasting the default soundfont that comes with FL Studio (the string section one) into your new directory and see if FL recognises it.
In the case that none of the above worked... I'm stumped. So... yeah - hope I helped.
