I’m working on making these soundfonts bassmidi compatible. Mostly so they will work with Zoltan’s excellent program, Falcosoft MidiPlayer. I’m also working on a version for fluidsynth and the Raspberry Pi.
SOUNDCLOUD PLAYLIST WITH SAMPLE MUSIC
I’m releasing these in two formats, SF2 and SFOGG. SF2 is uncompressed and very large, this is basically the “sourcecode” for the thing. SFOGG is a custom format used by FalcoSoft MIDIPlayer (based off of SF2Pack). It’s WAAAAY smaller for 95% the same quality. Some versions also get a SF3 version to be used in MuseScore.
DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE KOR SOUNDFONT
- THE K.O.R. GM COMPLETE SOUNDFONT V.5.0
This is a GM complete and tuned soundfont, it’s not really GM/GS compatible yet but it’s pretty close. This version’s goal is to be under 2gb while staying as realistic as possible.
- THE K.O.R. ORCHESTRA ADD-ON V.2.1
This is a addon pack for the GM Complete soundfont. It has higher quality samples and a few more variations of different instruments.
- THE K.O.R. GM BASIC SOUNDFONT V.0.6
This is a sample reduced version of the GM Complete soundfont. The main goal of this version is to be under 800mb. It is also the most GM Compatible of all the soundfonts, because of this most games seem to sound the best with this soundfont.
- THE K.O.R. GM TINY SOUNDFONT V.0.6
Basically the same as the Basic soundfont but the goal is to be under 500mb instead (not quite there yet). Most of the work on getting this one so small was done by the Strix Soundfont Team.
- GM Tiny
- GM Basic
- GM Complete
- Orchestra Add-on
- Older versions
I’ve only used samples from places with compatible licenses to to GPL with a exception to allow the music made from this to be sold for $$$.
What does this mean? Do what you want with this, You can also make your own version of this soundfont, as long as you license it in a similar manner.
