XenFont Stats Report
SF2 SoundFonts alive and well after xenharmonic reanimation
Since its public release on February 3, 2013 - in just a mere three month period - there have been 6,818 downloads of the XenFont VSTi, making it, by far, the most popular of all the Xen-Arts instruments.
Perhaps the most surprising part of seeing this level of enthusiasm, is a previously held preconception, that the SF2 SoundFont format was basically obsolete, and for this reason, there would likely be very little interest in a fully microtonal SF2 VSTi, however, this has proven to be entirely incorrect.
As well as the uniformly positive feedback from computer musicians and composers around the world, it has also been an honor to have the instrument featured on a variety of great music technology websites such as:

It's been thrilling to see this truly astonishing level of interest, in this, and the other Xen-Arts VSTi, and as always, if you create xenharmonic and microtonal music with these instruments, get in touch to let us know about it, as the ultimate goal of this effort is to inspire computer musicians and composers to explore the vast expressive possibilities of composing and performing with alternative intonation systems.
To all of the friendly people who have posted comments, shared music and written privately, it's been great to hear from you and learn about your interest in xenharmonic and microtonal music.
