Always used to think that MIDI music was ugly? Think again!
Arachno SoundFont is a General MIDI-compliant bank of 128 instruments ("presets") and 9 GM/GS drumkits, aimed at enhancing the realism of your MIDI files and arrangements.
This bank includes many famous sounds from the best synthesizers by Roland (D-50, Sound Canvas...), Korg (M1, X5...), Yamaha (MU, Clavinova...), Fairlight (CMI), E-MU (Emulator), Ensoniq, and many others.
It's meant to be used with a SoundFont...
Most portions of this bank actually come from other sources (SoundFont and GigaSampler libraries, third-party synthesizer samples), credited in the official documentation, although I've been unable to remember where I found a few presets and samples, here and there.
You're free to use Arachno SoundFont in any of your projects. But, please be aware that this bank is primarily distributed for private, non-commercial purposes only, as it uses portions from other authors. If you want to use it for commercial purposes, please obtain a written consent from the original authors credited in the Preset list and Copyright information and credits sections of the documentation.
De nombreuses portions de cette banque proviennent de sources diverses (collections de banques SoundFont et GigaSampler, échantillons de synthétiseurs tiers), décrites dans la documentation officielle; bien que j'avoue avoir été parfois incapable de me souvenir de la provenance de certains sons et presets, ici et là.
Vous êtes libre d'utiliser Arachno SoundFont dans tous vos projets. Mais, gardez à l'esprit que cette banque vous est avant tout proposée pour une utilisation privée et non commerciale, vu qu'elle utilise en partie le travail d'autres auteurs. Si vous souhaitez l'utiliser à des fins commerciales, je vous saurais gré d'obtenir une autorisation écrite de la part des auteurs originaux mentionnés dans les sections Liste des presets et Informations liées au copyright et crédits de la documentation.

This libre Soundfont is a fixed version of Micasddsa4000's Jummbox Soundfont. I, stgiga, fixed the pitch, OPL2 samples, modulators, and mappings, and also added Zandro Reveille's OPL3 drums (TheFatMan is part of the equation, including OPL2 booster drums too) (also William B. Santos's YM2612 and Piconica (free basic waveform synth tool of sorts) drums were used to boost the range again, followed by little-scale's and drunkenjesus's OPLL drums, resulting in a drum range of ...
Beepbox and Jummbox are under the MIT license, and Zandro's OPL3 and OPL2 are under CC-BY-SA4, which is compatible with the MIT license. The William B. Santos stuff is Public Domain.
OPLL stuff is libre.

This my merger and fix of the Hedsound MT32 soundfont and Hakerg's GM version. Hakerg had forgotten the fret noise which broke certain songs, so what I did to fix that involved me putting the Guitar Harmonics thing there. Also I did some link-related stereo fixes without affecting the MT32's special stereo. I also painstakingly made the SFX kit into individual GS SFX items, while also making Bird Tweet better. I mapped the SFX also into the MSB Bank 64 XG SFX bank so that ...
