EdgeSounds has released the SoniqBear GM120Pro, a 120 MB General Midi (GM) SoundFont bank.
The SoniqBear SF2 bank was created keeping in mind the needs of contemporary pop-music production. It is suited for projects in Dance, Techno, Pop, House, Jungle, Hip-Hop, New Wave or Alternative music genres. But, as a quite large sound library it can be creatively used for many other music styles as well, or even to generate unusual sound ideas.
SoniqBear contains 1531 waveforms, which constitute the 120 MB of quality samples: 668 instruments set in 513 patches arranged in 4 complete General MIDI compatible banks plus a bank of 30 XG compatible drum kits for easier switch between various MIDI (GM, GM2, GS, XG) standards. In addition to conventional GM instruments, included are some ethnic Russian instrument samples, like Balalaika, Bayan, some Siberian flutes, percussion and others. Specifications:
