Upload of sf2 files very slooooooow

Hi there!

All of the sudden, sf2 upload is taking about 60 times longer than usual. Normally a 100MB sf2 file would upload in under a minute. Now it takes about 20 - 30 min.

I have not changed anything in setup or the like. Webconfig works as expected.

The only thing I DID change was renaming soundfonts like so:

Grand Italian.sf2

pno: Grand Italian.sf2

EDIT: Problem persists after renaming “pno:” to “pno”

Maybe related issue:
Backup only works if I exclude

here’s my config:

200805 zynConf|690x375



my soundfonts directory is about 1.9Gig - am I running into SD-Card capacity issues maybe?

I also have the problem when I start the sampler all names of samplers disappear? sometimes shows again I hope that they make an update for it wait maybe yes? :v:

Sounds like you are using a very low end microSD to begine with. You say normally you can transfer 100MB in under 1 minute. That sound extremely bad. I would have expected you to say a few seconds for a 100MB file. I can transfer a 100MB via LAN in about 2 seconds and about 5 seconds via WiFi.

My 2 cents. Your issues may very well be all down to the microSD card you are using.

Kind regards

yes that’s true but when you start the sampler is the problem and hangs
probably i got the sampler from a korg and of course as sf2 it doesn’t work

As I’m using the fastest SD I coud find (class 10HC) i def rule this out. By now it does work again, I upgraded to the latest zynthian build - and even got a bigger SD card (32GB, class10HC) - eventually this was an issue with running out of space on the SD card.
