(This function is part of SDL_mixer, a separate library from SDL.)


Set SoundFonts paths to use by supported MIDI backends.

Header File

Defined in <SDL3_mixer/SDL_mixer.h>


int Mix_SetSoundFonts(const char *paths);

Function Parameters

const char * paths Paths on the filesystem where SoundFonts are available, separated by semicolons.

Return Value

(int) Returns 1 if successful, 0 on error (out of memory).


You may specify multiple paths in a single string by separating them with semicolons; they will be searched in the order listed.

This function replaces any previously-specified paths.

Passing a NULL path will remove any previously-specified paths.

Note that unlike most SDL and SDL_mixer functions, this function returns zero if there's an error, not on success. We apologize for the API design inconsistency here.


This function is available since SDL_mixer 3.0.0.
