Hi,
Soundblaster Audigy+ drivers support DLS but only as a format that the drivesr can convert to SF2.
So the interesting aspects of DLS that are not supported by SF2 (e.g. Bank MSB+LSB support so 16384 banks overall) are lost.

Apart from this DLS soundfont support would still be useful in Bassmidi. Even the same way as in SB Audigy+ drivers (only real time conversion to SF2).

There are no immediate plans for DLS support, but it would be a nice to have, so it may well appear in a future BASSMIDI release. I will try to look into it before the next release.

You can work on the Roland DLS included in windows as a good basis

Nice lan! Good luck.

Exactly, can try under dls1 (wav 8bit wav 16 bits with some features) first, before can try dls 2 (that is more closer to .sf2). According to Awave Studio .
