Description:

Gangstas Paradise (Coolio). Something to have a play with, I can not get it to sound rite.

Comments:
I think you imported a midi file and made a big mess of it :-)
Problem 1: Your Fantasy Bell track is actually the drum track. LMMS cannot import the drum track from a midi file correctly and the soundfont player indicates "Stereo Grand". Thus you have to change the patch in the soundfont player. Choose bank 120 and patch 0 "Standard Drums" and the soundfont player will play the drum track correctly. Analyzing it you will see that the drums don't only consist of bass drum and clap!
Problem 2: If you use samples like heaven_strings01.ogg you have to set the green marker in the Audiofile Processor to the note the sample is recorded. Default is A5, but heaven_strings01.ogg is recorded in E4. So Move the green marker from A5 to E4. Otherwise the notes will be played totally out of tune. But better use a ZynAddSubFX string sound. It will sound better anyway.
Problem 3: If you change from soundfont player to ZynAddSubFX you have to shift the notes one octave higher. Otherwise they will be played one octave too low.
I hope I could help you to fix your remake in order it will be played correctly.Posted by: Peter F on 2016-12-29 07:13:59
