A SoundFont of FPD97/98's predecessor, FPD (Frostforest PCM Driver). This is a SoundFont using the PCM tone waveform data found in the multiple PCM driver FPD for NEC PC-98 computers. They also are used in the first FPD port for Windows 95, called FPD95. New versions (from FPD97 onwards) uses a different PCM sound set for MIDI and RCP playback, but the old sound set still is present. It has 128 presets and 1 drumkit.
I made it because someone requested it. Keep in mind that this SoundFont has only one sample per instrument (except the drumkit) so it maybe will disappoint you, and some presets uses the same instrument. Moreover it is not 100% accurate in the panning values used in the drumkit.
As I said before, new versions of FPD still includes this PCM sound set, but curiously FPD98 includes some unused ones which the original FPD does not have. Maybe they're for composers who used its built-in MML compiler.
