Sound Files for Notes on a Guitar

Hey everybody,
I'm looking for somewhere online that I can find sound files for every note on the guitar (minus duplicates). For example, a sound file for a low E, then a F, then F#, etc.. They would need to be just a few seconds long each. Has anybody seen such a collection anywhere on the web?

A good sample library isn't going to run cheap, but if you don't need perfect quality, you can try the Fluid R3 soundfont. It's free, but you'll need a soundfont player and a DAW to use it.

Quality doesn't have to be great. However, I'm hoping to find something in a typical file format like mp3, wav, etc. Thanks though!

Why? what possible use do you have for individual samples of every note on the guitar?

Can't you just play the guitar notes yourself?

I mean, Cav's right about the Fluid R3 soundfont library, but you're still better off picking up your guitar and recording that. Unless your problem is that you're too lazy to save up for a proper interface and just want to manipulate soundfonts to put songs together -- which is a BAD idea.

I'm writing an iPhone app where you can strum chords (or individual strings that are in the proper finger position of that chord). The file types have to be in a standard format in order to be compatible with iOS devices. And I don't have a guitar/mic to record with.

Soundfonts are a fairly standard format for sample librarys. The specification is open so you should be able to write your program to use soundfont files.
Alternatively, get a free soundfont player VST plugin, the REAPER trial, and make a quick midi file to play every note in the guitar's range, then render the track to a stem and split it up into individual .wav files for each note.

I don't think you could ??

because sound fonts or samplers are designer for the keyboard range that's 88 keys there are alot of notes that over lap on a guitar 132 notes on a 22 fret guitar.

so you would have to refine the range you want to capture.

He said minus duplicates so it needs to cover 4 octaves (E2 - E6, 48 notes) which should be well within the range of a standard guitar. It may not work for dropped tunings but I don't imagine an app like this would be supporting alternate tunings.

Wouldn't there be an issue with using someone else's work for an app?

Especially if you put it up for money or monetize it through advertising?

that is my point he asked for every note that's 132 notes, Yes there only 46 notes but if you have not noticed there is alot of tone variation in the string and fret position.

he really need to do it myself to work out what he really needs, not just download something.

I think you missed this in the OP

So there's 46-48 notes because he said he doesn't care about the duplicates.

Chem has a point though, even if we knew somewhere that had the sounds, you will need to get author permission to use it.

You guys are correct about the "minus duplicates" part, I just need each note (A, A#, B, C..etc) not every single fret position. And it's for a school project so I don't plan on publishing or making it public or anything. I know there would probably be some rights barriers which I'm trying to avoid.

I'll see if I can get it working with the soundfont files you guys are talking about. Thanks for all the tips.
