Hello all, I've started trying to use midi and I found the General Midi 1 soundfont relatively quickly. However I'm trying to find a download of the General Midi level 2 soundfont and I can't find it anywhere. thị trường bất động sản Since I have really no experience with midi yet I might be missing something obvious. If anyone can help me out that'd be great.

Sorry to be pedantic, but what is 'the General Midi 1 soundfont'?

Usually, a 'soundfont' is a file of digital data (like .wav or mp4 data) to be used to create the sound of instruments. There is certainly not ONE of such a file, I'm sure there are a number, of varying size and quality, some free, some costing money. I use one called 'Timbres of Heaven' and it's quite good. I've heard some pretty poor ones as well.

There are certainly files providing sounds for GM instruments (i.e. GM1, or just GM). There are other files with extended facilities, but maybe not as far as full GM2, as GM2 is a LOT bigger than GM

The list of instruments for GM is pretty standard, so you can find 'the list'. I have seen lists for GM2, but these tend to vary (somewhat) between manufacturers so I'm not certain that GM2 is as 'standard' as is GM (1). Standard enough for most purposes, I guess. But not 100%??

Coming back to 'soundfont' files, if there are any complete enough to be worthy of the name, they may not be 'standard' enough to count??
