Problems with multiple SFZ player plug-ins?

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone,

Does anyone know how to successfully use multiple instances of the free SFZ player plug-in with REAPER? If I use one instance, everything works/sounds fine, but as soon as I add more than one instance of the SFZ player plugin, I hear a hideous crackling/popping upon playback.

I have seen this problem mentioned before, but my question is: is there any way to fix this? Some setting or something that can be adjusted so I can have more than one SFZ player plug-in active?

Any advice is appreciated - and again, my DAW is REAPER.

Thanks!

Do you mean sfz or sfz+?

If you mean sfz, I can't remember any problems with it (I'm also a REAPER user), in this case you might try using sfz+ (free as well) instead.

And if you meant sfz+, I can't use multiple instances with it either, so you will have to use up all the 16 channels of that single instance - you can route things nicely in REAPER, so other tracks can send their midi into the sfz+-track and recieve their audio from there (although you have to enable "allow feedback routing" in the project settings).

I'm not sure about Reaper, but I had a similar problem in FL Studio that I was able to fix by turning off multithreading in the options. Maybe it'll fix your Reaper problem?

Sounds like your CPU can't handle it! I have the paid version of SFZ personally(or, I would, if my computer was operational right now :neutral:) so I can just load up a bunch of stuff into 1 plugin, so I don't have that problem. Actually, I have similar problems(not using SFZ that much, by the by) in some of my more complex songs(esp. ones that use a lot of dblue glitch!). What are your specs?

Never mind, everyone - apparently I had an older version of the SFZ player; I downloaded the version at

and that SFZ player worked fine with multiple instances...I now have 8+ instances of the SFZ player (with different soundfonts, etc.) playing just fine.

Thanks everyone for the help...I guess sometimes you just gotta search around for a quick fix.
