SF Pack is a useful program that can optimize SoundFont files by compressing them in order to reduce the occupied disk space. You can use the program as an alternative to the default ZIP packer from the Windows operating systems.
The SoundFont technology is used to package sound effects collections that can be used for music compositions. Although it is no longer used on a large scale, you can still use SoundFont banks with MIDI devices when creating music on your computer.
Since a music composer usually has large collections of sound samples, the required disk space tends to grow bigger as you create new compositions. This tool is designed to help you reduce the used space with minimum effort.
The interface is simple and allows you to add the files that you need to compress and process them with one click. SF Pack can pack all the files from the list and allows you to specify the output folder.
If you are worried about the sound quality of the archived files, you should know that the application uses a lossless compression which preserves the sample quality. You can change the default compression rate from the Preferences window which also allows you to encrypt the compressed files.
Unlike the common compression tools, the program is optimized for digital sound data which allows you to save more space. In our tests, this tool significantly improved the results of other archive creators.
If you need to minimize the disk space used by your SoundFont file collection, SF Pack is the right tool for the job. The shell integration allows you to easily manage your archives from the context menu.
