Akai EWI USB Control

Akai EWI USB Control 1.0.6 (Mac) 

Setup and MIDI filtering utility for the Akai EWI USB wind controller hardware. Provided to you free of charge by Cognitone.

Akai EWI USB Control reads MIDI data from your wind controller, filters and processes it and then sends it to your sequencer or synthesizer. You can setup filters that generate articulations (key switches) to control different timbres and variations of the sample library you are playing. Akai EWI USB Control is also a great utility to save different setups for your wind controller to files and restore them later.

SF2 File Converter/Compressor

SF2 File Converter/Compressor 1 (Mac) 

Convert SF2 SoundFonts to SF3 (Vorbis) or SF4 (FLAC) and back. This utility converts SF2 files to SF3 format, using Ogg Vorbis for sample compression (SF3 is natively supported by MuseScore). Conversion of SF3 back to SF2 is also possible, however since Ogg Vorbis is lossy, SF3 is not useful for archiving purposes.

Alternatively, sf2convert converts to a new proposed SF4 format (not a standard in any way yet), using lossless FLAC for sample compression. This format is well suited for archiving and maybe a workable replacement for the legacy sfArk format.

Requires Windows 7 or later.

Usage

Compression with Ogg Vorbis (o)
sf2convert -zo <infile.SF2> <outfile.SF3>

Compression with FLAC (f)
sf2convert -zf <infile.SF2> <outfile.SF4>

Extraction of any compressed format:
sf2convert -x <infile.SF3> <outfile.SF2> 
sf2convert -x <infile.SF4> <outfile.SF2>
For additional options, run the utility with an empty command line.
