OmegaGMGS2 GM, GM2, XG, and Roland GS custom soundfont by Rick Simon
I, like many others, love midi songs but have always thought soundfonts were a mixed bag. Some sound amazing on certain instruments, but horrible on others. I have every free bank that is available and have tried free and commercial soundfonts. Other issues I ran into:
-Soundfonts are only GM compatible, so Roland GS, Yamaha XG, or General Midi 2 songs will not playback correctly.
-Low quality samples
-Mish-moshed presets that sound good individually at times, but horrible in a mix.
So I made my own custom soundfont, OmegaGMGS2. I made it back in 2001 and have updated it periodically over the years. I am offering my soundfont to everyone...completely free of charge!
-GM, GM2, Yamaha XG, and Roland GS compatible (can playback any midi song in these formats!)
-45 Drum Kits (including Yamaha XG and Roland GS sets)
-24-Bit quality samples
-Currently only 119 MB in size!

Compare this to any soundfonts you own or that are available and please let me know what you think. I will let you judge for yourself.
All I ask: Please give credit where it is due. The soundfont has a lot of time, heart, and trial and error invested. If you use it to make a soundfont, or for productions, please give credit to me, Rick Simon.
