Everyone likes free stuff, right? Here is a listing of some of the better free soundfonts that I've found and used over the years. I acquired all of them free at sites such as Hammersound and Soundfonts.it. The problem with sites such as those is that the sheer number of available soundfonts often makes it difficult to find those of good quality. Here I have compiled a listing of some that, in my opinion, are the best that I've found.
Please contact me if you believe you have found a better sounding free soundfont than one of these. My goal is to have only the best on this page.
