What is a sound font? | Lightsaber Terminology
A lightsaber sound font, sometimes spelled soundfont, is a compilation of sound effects installed on lightsaber soundboard. Custom sound sabers may arrive pre-loaded with 1 or more sound fonts on the soundboard. Sometimes the user may purchase and install additional sound fonts onto the board. Other times, the lightsaber is only loaded with one fixed sound font that cannot be modified or changed.
