I'm not satisfied with my purchase, can I get a refund?

All digital download media (Saber fonts) sales are final and not eligible for return or refunds. All our sound fonts product pages have a video demo for all customers to see and hear the sound fonts in action prior to making a purchase. This is done to set expectations and so everyone can make an informed purchasing decision if this item is right for you, prior to making the purchase.

*Please note - If you do not know how to install a saber sound font into your saber, or do not have the required soundboard (OS), this is not a reason to ask for a return/refund. Please do your research prior to purchasing and make sure you have the right compatible soundboard (hardware) with most current soundboard OS (software).

A font that I purchased a while back is now on sale, can you refund me the difference?

While we sometimes do runs sales from time to time, we are sorry to inform that all purchases are final and we cannot refund the sales price difference.

PRODUCTS

What is a Saber Sound Font?

A "Sound Font" is a preconfigured array of sound files to load into your (compatible) saber. These sound files are the saber hum, swing, blaster blocks, lockup, etc sounds that breathe new life into your own personal saber with authentic and realistic saber sounds based off the movie(s) or fantasy. A Saber Sound Font is responsible for the audio you hear playing out of your saber and each different "sound font" offered is preconfigured to mimic certain styles or characters.

What saber soundboard formats will these sound fonts work with?
All our sound fonts are both Proffie and Crystal Focus (CFX) compatible only. Each purchased digital download with contain folders for both formats in the same purchase.
  • Please make sure your saber soundcard is up to date and compatible. Some older style soundboards that haven't been updated (operating system) in quite some time may not be compatible with these up-to-date saber fonts and their naming conventions. Chances are, if your using a sound board that's 1+ years old, it most likely wont be compatible with these fonts unless you update your board OS.
  • Updates for CFX
  • Updates for Proffie
  • Minimum Required Soundcard Boards (hardware):
    • CrystalFocusX - (OS) v10.003 or higher
    • Proffie v2.2 - (OS) 4.5 or higher
Can I share my purchased sound font with my friends/family/saber community?
No. Your purchased Sound Font is for single personal use only. While you can load your purchased sound font into all the sabers "you" own, however it is not permitted for distribution, sharing with others, retail sale or resell use unless permitted & agreements made prior to doing so by sound font author (BKSaberSounds). Persons caught stealing, sharing or distributing such items are punishable by law. Piracy will not be tolerated.
Can I use these sound font files for other purposes like 'movie effects', 'fan films', 'music production', 'song writing'?
The short answer, No. There are 2 big reasons why this can't be done. Firstly, these saber sound fonts are made sonically and tailored specifically for sabers and their smaller mono 22-28mm saber speakers. To try to use these for other purposes other than that would yield unsatisfactory results and expectations for major audio production or movie/film where a stereo, hi-dynamic ranged, full frequency spectrum is wanted. Secondly, these saber sound fonts are not royalty free audio/music. Meaning the sole purpose of these are for single sole personal saber use only, not for distribution, sharing or any other purposes other than what they were built and intended use.
Do sound font purchases come with visual soundboard "blade profile styles"?
Sorry, when you purchase a saber sound font, you are purchasing just the saber "sound" font (audio). Blade profile styles (visuals) are something completely different. We do not sell, nor assist in helping you with creating saber blade styles, color effects, or visual saber effects. We sell only the saber audio (sounds). You could try these links below for experimenting with blade profile styles:
Are there ever any updates to these sound files?
Yes, we are constantly always trying to make things sound better. If a product has been updated, you will be notified via email that there is a new update/version of your purchase available for you to download, at no additional charge. This notification email will contain the new download link(s) for your convenience.  Once a purchase has been made, it includes lifetime downloads of every recent update that is available of the item. Also review the "readme.txt" files in your font file folder to see the changelog of whats been changed to see if the update applies to you.
  • *Note - We encourage you to save a copy of your old version prior to installing the new update if one is available. For what ever reason if you prefer the older version, it is upon you to have it saved to your personal belonging. Once a product update is made, we will not be saving the older versions and they will not be accessible. 
How come my sound font I just got doesn't sound as lush, bright and loud as your demo video?
Not all sabers are created equally. There are many different factors why a sound font might sound different from one saber to the next. Saber 'speaker' size & type, 'resonance chamber' and how well ventilated your pommel is all play a huge role in how your saber will sound, not just with my sound fonts...but with anyone's. 
  • In my product 'Demo Videos', what you are hearing is the direct injected raw saber sounds passing from the saber sound board into a recording interface, this way you can hear the raw audio files themselves. But for reference, my personal sabers have a 24mm 2W/4ohm bass speaker, and my resonance chamber (distance in-between the speaker to the pommel) is about 1".
Do you do commission font making, or make me a one of a kind font?
Sorry, but at this time we do not make custom request sound fonts or commission fonts. 

AFFILIATIONS & DISCLAIMERS

Do you work for or affiliated with Disney / Lucas Films?
No, we are not. All our products are made using outside sourced sounds, as well as in-house created sounds. These "inspired by", "re-imagined", "re-creations" while are influenced on our favorite movie lore, they are rightfully protected and covered by the Fair Use Act Copyright Law ; sections 106, 106A, 107 as being researched for these "inspired by" & "re-imagined" sound creations. Time, creativity, labor, and equipment used are what determines on how we price our products to make them compatible for specific device types and a realistic immersive experience.

SUPPORT

Do you support other sound boards that are not Proffie or CFX?

At this time, our sound font files are only pre-configured for Proffie or CFX.

While these sound files (16bit/mono) can work with other sound boards (Verso/Golden Harvest/etc), the individual sound file names have to be re-named to match that soundboards naming requirement. Users can try this at their own risk. A useful forum thread was made to identify all the specific naming conventions or each specific sound board HERE.

Again, we do not offer support and troubleshooting in sound font installation. Installation and customization is the customer/users responsibility.

Got any tips and tricks to help a newbie out?

Heres a few sure ways to help a smooth install that should be issue free:

  • Use a quality SD Card in your soundboard. Try to get something that is rated at a fast read/write times. Usually these are labeled as speed class V10/U1 or V30/U3. Anything less that that and you can experience sound drop outs, sounds being cut off mid play, or jitter/static/distorted sounds.
  • Sometimes SD cards can go corrupt over time if you are the type of person who loads many fonts over multiple periods of time on the same card. This also can cause jitter/static/distorted sounds if done too often. The best way to remedy this is to copy all of your sound fonts off the SD card and move them to your computer desktop (temporarily). Then simply wipe clean and reformat your SD to bring it back to a new/unused state. Load all of your fonts back on to it, and this should help clear up any corrupted SD card issues.
  • As always we suggest that your soundboard is up to date to the latest version (OS) to ensure proper functionality. Please visit your soundboards support page to get the latest OS downloads and update your soundboard to its latest version.

Will you help me install these sound fonts?

Sorry, we cannot. Installation is up to the customer/user. You can refer to your saber soundboard user manual, or there are plenty of tutorials online regarding sound font installing. We will not be liable for improper installation of our saber sound fonts, or failure to check if you have the compatible soundcard hardware. Also, please do make sure your sabers operating system is "up to date".
