Good Soundfonts? Was: [PlanetCCRMA] Tmidity Jack Support?

Thanks for setting the record (no pun intended) straight...  My bad!

LADSPA plugins were on my 'to do' list as well as soundfonts.  I suppose
that by the word 'plugins' in the actual link I'd have had a keen sense for
the obvious!

I think you're mistaken - that looks to me like Steve Harris' website - 
on the page holding releases of his LADSPA plugins. It's all good stuff 

I'm sure someone will have mentioned this previously somewhere, but... 
If you're happy to be restricted from using soundfonts comercially (read 
the details on the website) then you could always have a look at

They have a (nice-sounding and well-tuned!) drumkit soundfont, as well 
as a few others. Some of them use a lot of memory - but that's the way 
to get sampling to work well...

Hope this helps someone
