fluidProgramSelect

fluidProgramSelect — Assigns a preset from a SoundFont to a channel on a fluidEngine.

Syntax

fluidProgramSelect ienginenum, ichannelnum, isfnum, ibanknum, ipresetnum

Description

Assigns a preset from a SoundFont to a channel on a fluidEngine.

Initialization

ienginenum -- engine number assigned from fluidEngine

ichannelnum -- which channel number to use for the preset in the given fluidEngine

isfnum -- number of the SoundFont from which the preset is assigned

ibanknum -- number of the bank in the SoundFont from which the preset is assigned

ipresetnum -- number of the preset to assign

Examples

Here is an example of the fluidProgramSelect opcode. It uses the file fluidProgramSelect.csd.

Here is another more complex example of the fluidsynth opcodes written by Istvan Varga. It uses the file fluidcomplex.csd.

<CsoundSynthesizer>
<CsOptions>
; Select audio/midi flags here according to platform
;Anna.mid is a midi file, a song by The Beatles and can be found on the internet
-odac -T -F  Anna.mid;;;realtime audio I/O and midifile in
;-iadc    ;;;uncomment -iadc if realtime audio input is needed too
; For Non-realtime ouput leave only the line below:
; -o fluidcomplex.wav -W ;;; for file output any platform
</CsOptions>
<CsInstruments>

sr = 44100
ksmps = 32
nchnls = 2
0dbfs  = 1
