But how will you choose your soundfont?
As we all know, there is a considerable difference in the construction of a Sith’s Lightsaber VS that of the Jedi Knights. The Sith were the first to wield the plasma blade, and synthesize the crystals used in its chamber. Because of their loyalty to tradition, the Sith have continued to synthesize their crystals, often making them much more unstable than the refined blades of the Jedi. The energy of the blade crackles giving the idle hum a more menacing and electric sound.
Because of the instability of the crystal and its energy, the hum and swinging sounds of the Sith’s sabers tended to be a deeper, almost darker sound. The saber to saber clashes almost resembled the sound of a downed power line or sparking wires, and added a truly terrifying element to the battle when paired to a Sith’s clawed emitter and traditional crimson blade.

The blades of early sabers used by the Jedi Knights were much more stable as they were powered by a belt-mounted power supply, but came with several shortcomings such as a quickly drained and limited power supply, and a tether to the power pack. Eventually, the Jedi would adopt the Sith-advanced technology of the Superconductor, allowing them to discard the old “battery” technology. Due to the seizing of the vast majority of crystal mines by the Empire, the Jedi eventually constructed their sabers with natural crystals mined from Illum. The natural crystals generated a more stable, but often less powerful blade than those of the Sith.

The blades of a Jedi Knight idly hummed with a stable, noble, unwavering buzz. There were no cracks of electricity until blades met in combat, and the swing was solid, accenting the fight, almost giving it a dialog. The ignition sound of a Jedi’s blade was a fluid crisp electric sound that announced the start of a battle.
