This soundfont contains the Contemporary (default) GM2 sound set of the Edirol SD-20 sound module, for the most part. Though it is not possible to conform to the GM2 standards due to lack of Bank LSB with soundfont technology, however, I added most of these additional patches in place of their respective GS ones, meaning the GS support is about Roland SC-55 coverage, with a few additions. Note that this can be a bit confusing, because these are not sampled from its GS soun...

This is my first recording of a kalimba. There aren't too many kalimba soundfonts out there, so now here's one. All 17 keys were sampled from a Gecko Kalimba K17M (tuned in standard C major). There are two variations: the default with one velocity layer, and the other with three velocity layers.

This soundfont was sampled from a Korg AG-10, one of the earliest GM sound modules (released in 1993). It's up to you what you wish to use it for, even if it's low-fi sounding these days. It has 128 General MIDI sounds and 4 Drum Kits (GM Kit, Power Kit, Analog Kit, Brush Kit). Note that there is no Room, Electronic, Jazz or Orchestra Kit here.
Some demos (for comparisons with the sound module itself) are available on Google Drive, here:

I, stgiga, made this layered mashup of the Yamaha Tyros 4 fixed Soundfont by Milton Paredes (which was fixed by RolandKnight) and the JV-1010 Soundfont. This results in a layered GM bank with snazzy timbre and it sounds really really good with many MIDIs. The acoustic guitar is really realistic, among others.
I hope that you enjoy this!
No quality was sacrificed during the making of this.

This is my first attempt at creating a soundfont based on a Roland JV-1010 sound module (one of my favorites), in an attempt to mimic its neat GM patches. It will obviously not sound exactly like the real thing, but it's still better than nothing if you don't have this sound module.
Bear in mind that regarding percussion, GM only needs to support keys between 35-81, so anything below (27-34) or higher (82-87) is only used by GM2/GS/XG MIDIs. The drumsets here also have th...

This is the LiLVintage Soundfont: a mixture of various individual instrument patches, spiced up with a few GUS and a lot of GUS PPL 1.61 patches for the retro vibes, as well as with hand-picked choices from "RealSound GS 2.0" and "GM2 Map Soundfont" patches, and it comes with the Utopia Soundbank's drumsets. So it's quite the mixture. Basically I aimed for a more 'palatable' GUS PPL based soundfont.
NOTE: There are two editions for this soundfont. The difference for the s...
Since the soundfont uses some GUS patches and some unknown sources for some patches (obtained through the net long ago), I'd say it can be used for free purposes, but not commercially.

This is intended to be an orchestral soundfont for GM (General MIDI), compiled from various other soundfonts. The reason being is that I couldn't find a decent orchestral GM soundfont (for my needs), so I decided to compile my own by carefully picking samples from other sources.
Feel free to use this for whatever you want to, but remember that these samples aren't mine, so it's all a grey area.
Update: Added 309 GS patches. The GM only version can still be downloaded fro...
