A huge collection of 128 instruments and 8 drumkits created by Ian Wilson.
The instrument sounds include emulations of Yamaha DX-7 and TX81Z, Roland D-50
and Casio VL-1 as well as a lot of other analog / vintage / synthetic sounds.
The drumkits emulated are Roland TR808, TR909 and CR-78, dnaloR TR-101 (Imaginary
Roland :-) ), Analog (Lots of Depeche, Yazoo stuff here), Electronic (Small
cheesy kit) and Kraftwerk (Small set of blippy drums).
Ian Wilson spent about a year creating this soundfont, without using samples
taken from synthesizers. Instead, the sounds are designed around simple waveforms
like Sine, Sawtooth ... etc. The soundfont is thus very small, but surprisingly
versatile since it contains a full complement of 128 instruments (no variations),
as well as 8 drum kits. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED!
