Apollo GMGS v1.103 (GM+GS soundfont)

by Caed

Uploaded on Aug 22, 2023 (and last updated on Sep 18, 2023)

This soundfont, which is 3.97 GB, is meant to be a high quality, high-end, and a decently balanced soundfont with decent sounds and a decent MIDI-listening experience. I took many feedback and such into consideration for this version of this soundfont, and make adjustments based on that to make this soundfont better than the previous versions. NOTE: I renamed this soundfont from "Caed's Ultimate Adequate GM" to "Apollo GMGS" as I thought the previous name was vague. It ...

SONOR Acoustic Drums

by Simone Piervergili

Uploaded on Jul 23, 2023 (and last updated on Jul 24, 2023)

Real life recorded from my neighbor's Sonor Acoustic Drums in his house's living room with my Samsung Galaxy A52 phone, samples are mono, although I cloned layers and added stereo pannings. Also, these are not complete drums, in fact, unfortunately, they don't even have crash cymbal, they only had ride cymbal and hi hat, but still sounds good. I just created an instrument layer for the ride cymbal samples, I added them now.

SINEFactory Orchestral Tools Ratio Grand Piano

by Simone Piervergili

Uploaded on Jul 13, 2023 (and last updated on Jul 14, 2023)

[UPDATE 1] Added more release to the higher notes range G5 to G8, the original VST plugin didn't add release there. Ratio is a Steinway B grand piano recorded at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, so this is supposed to be sampled. I still used LMMS to record samples from this plugin. This piano deserved a soundfont too!!!

Spitfire LABS Autograph Grand

by Simone Piervergili

Uploaded on Jul 11, 2023 (and last updated on Jul 14, 2023)

This is a free Yamaha C6 Grand Piano plugin by Spitfire LABS (Spitfire Audio), recorded in Woodshed Recording Studio in Malibu, it must be sampled. I must have arranged splits correctly, right? Just like the original VST plugin. Btw, this still deserves a soundfont.

Apollo GMGS v1.051 (3.89 GiB GM+GS soundfont)

by Caed

Uploaded on Jul 10, 2023 (and last updated on Aug 29, 2023)

It is recommended that you upgrade to v1.10, that features a bunch of fixes such as balancing. https://musical-artifacts.com/artifacts/3181 This soundfont has been renamed from "Caed's Ultimate Adequate GM" to "Apollo GMGS". I've spent almost 2 months making this version and making a bunch of well changes to this soundfont to achieve a better MIDI listening experience. I've removed many sounds from CrisisGeneralMidi3.01 and other bland samples and such and made this sound...

[GD] Steinway Model D274

by GD CRAFT

Uploaded on Jun 13, 2023 (and last updated on Jul 05, 2023)

[Update 1.1] [Velocity layer adjustments and optimizations again] A new SF2 based on the Steinway Model D, samples were carefully selected and edited to my liking. It has 41 velocity layers with bright fortissimos and dark pianissimos almost like the velocity layers of East West Pianos which are perfect for live playing. All samples are recorded in 48 khz 24 bit to ensure the best quality. Enjoy!
