If you need that musical sound from an 80s rock band or a Homestar Runner cartoon, this sample library could fit the bill! I built this virtual synth from samples, recorded using a vintage keyboard, that just appeared one day. When we were kids, my brother and I spent countless hours playing around with it. I even composed some of my very first melodies of music using this keyboard.

AVL Drumkits are a free GPL collection of sampled drum sound libraries in various formats recorded...
The complete Korg M1 drumset. The drums are organized as a standard GM drumset.
I have only created 1 GM set, although a couple of more could easily be made
by selecting from the avalible basedrums, snares and hi hats. All individual
drums from the M1 are included, though.
A drumset from the Roland R8 drum machine. The soundfont consists of two drumsets,
both organized as standard GM drumsets. Excess sounds (a couple of snares)
have been put in the octave below the GM bassdrum 1 (C1). This drumset was
based on samples freely available on the net.
An acoustic kit built from samples of more than 30 acoustic percussive instruments.
There are quite a lot of useful sounds here, both standard percussion and weird
ethnic variants. The kit was based on samples freely available on the net.
A drumset based on samples from the famous Linn Drum Machine (LM-1). This is
the classic 80's drum machine - it began the whole drum machine phenomena.
The Linn Drum uses great sampled drum sounds, which at the time, was a fresh
alternative to the electronic drums of the 80's. It has been used by Phil Collins,
Thompson Twins, Stevie Wonder and The Art of Noise. Since I have never heard
this drum machine myself, I could need some help tuning and adjusting the drums
Yet another drumset from the legendary Roland TR-808 drum machine. The drums
have been organized into the GM format by Jeremy Arsenault. It contains 6 sets.
All have been set as percusive pools and melodic pools.
All the drumsamples from the Pampus Magic (http://hem.passagen.se/haschin/)
website. Drum´n´Bass DrumKit, GoaTrance DrumKit, Club DrumKit, HipHop DrumKit,
Tambourine Kit. This soundfont contains one instrument with all the kits crammed
into one. The kit is not GM compatible. If anyone wants to create (several)
GM compatible instruments from this one, let me know.
