I responded to a email re aeolus. I mentioned the capability that you provided to edit sound font files. I was asked questions that are over my head and decided to pass the thread, listed below, along to you or others to see if any of you would be willing to respond. Thanks.

I would be interested in seeing a converter script if or when you code
it up.

There is already a Python script for creating a SoundFont file from wave files. Its just a matter of adapting it to this special case. Is there
any information that can be derived from the name of the files for
Hauptwerk instruments? How do you tell what notes they are for example,
is there a directory layout?  If I knew these details, it would really
help ;)

Are you aware of Fons Adriaensen's Aeolus Pipe Organ synthesizer?  His
approach for sound generation is to create samples using additive
synthesis. The samples are created a priori and can be saved to a file
for future use.  I know nothing about the formats that he uses.  He
does provide a sound font editor that is capable of changing the sound

No, I haven't heard of that. Sounds interesting though. Is it really a SoundFont editor that he provides or do you just mean that its an editor
which allows you to change the parameters?
