3.5 Gb Of Hq Ochestral Sf2! 2010-09-23 12:50:39 Reply

Over the last 6 months, I was forced to rebuild my soundfont collection, since I had lost it due to a computer change. During this time, I scoured the internet for some of the highest-quality soundfonts, finding some truly unique ones and some great sites. I could just tell you where to find these soundfonts, but it's easier for you if I just give you all of the ones I use. So enjoy 3.5 gigabytes of soundfonts, all grouped into convenient categories.

Percussion
Part 1 (182 mb)
Part 2 (163 mb)

Strings
Part 1 (171 mb)
Part 2 (117 mb)
Part 3 (28 mb)

Brass and Woodwinds (166 mb)

Choir, SFX, and Various (138 mb)

Collections- soundfonts that feature many instruments spanning several categories, such as GM banks.
Part 1 (191 mb)
Part 2 (163 mb)
Part 3 (180 mb)

Note: All files are compressed in .rar format, so you'll need winrar to open them. Also, Bellatrix Orchestral, by far the largest soundfont in this collection, is compressed in SFark format. You'll need SFark to use it.

Wow, thanks for the samples man. Downloading at the moment, can't wait to use them. I need to start writing some classical stuff soon, so this will be really helpful. :)

Wow, wish I knew about these sooner.

That is, before I got East/West Symphonic Orchestra :P.

But in all seriousness, really amazing finds. I heard the song you submitted late to the NGADM. Does it use the soundfonts you linked here? If so then these are some pretty darn good soundfonts O.O.

Yes it does, and everything I used is included in these packs.

I spent a LONG time getting these soundfonts together, so I'm glad they're getting some hits.

And if you need the sites I downloaded them from, just send me a PM

I was not able to download the Strings Part 2 file. If you can link me to another uploader site, that would be awesome.

Hmm that's odd... it worked for me when I tested on downloading that file.

Maybe the ad that follows when clicking on the download link screwed you over (for me it did, but I saw the download beginning). Try this link (it should begin downloading immediately upon clicking) and see if it works.

I noticed the collections soundfonts aren't getting downloaded as much as the other ones. That's where I put the best soundfonts in my arsenal though: Bellatrix Orchestra Final, SJ Orchestral GM, and Church Combo. The name might be weird, but there's some useful stuff there.

BTW, feel free to post links to soundfonts that you think I don't have. I can pretty much recognize all the soundfonts I've downloaded and used, and there's a couple of good soundfonts I know are out there that I just didn't bother to download.

Some sites I used:

freesf2.com
flstudiomusic.com
soundfonts.it (now changed, you can download everything they had in one package)
http://www.ethanwiner.com/ewsf2.html
soundfonts.darkesword.com
soundfonts.homemusician.net
http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.
php?t=28724
(thread is old, many of the links are now dead, but found SJ Orchestral this way. I have SJ in the package though, and I personally fixed the corrupted portion of the font. If you experience trouble, just download Viena Soundfont Studio and edit it like I did, it's likely going to be a viola sample that's giving you trouble.)
http://www.personalcopy.com/home.htm

Also, I found all of these just searching the internet. You'd be surprised what you can find just using google and some targeted queries.

Thanks, dude! This will be an awesome addition to my collection :)

I'm wondering how it will sound stacked up to my East West stuff. It will be interesting to say the least ^_^

Thanks again!

I don't often make music nowadays, but I'm downloading them anyway, might come in handy.
Free HQ stuff is always a win. Anyway, the first of the strings one is the only one that isn't working (because no server with the file is available), but I'll try that again later.

Thanks muchos sir. You deserve fifteen cool points. and 3 internets.

Thanks for telling me. I'll wait it out for a day, to see what's going on. If it's still acting up monday, I'll upload another copy, and might just add some extra stuff for the hell of it.

They are all free. It's completely legal. I spent months building this collection, and it simply wouldn't be right for me not to share this, especially since most people don't even have half of the number of soundfonts I have in my collection, or know how to find this stuff.

It's called Black Abyss because of the depth that is the amount of instruments you gave me and because of your name; among other things.
