Ah, if that Roland Brass Section Soundfont is the one I'm thinking of, it is indeed a good one. It took me a while to find a decent-sounding Brass Section.

I have two requests: First, can anyone recommend a good Orchestra Hit Soundfont? Preferrably one that sounds natural (i.e., like an actual orchestra, not the more filtered/artificial ones)? Second, Saxophones. All of the Soundfont ones I've found suck... real bad. Any recommendations?

Oh, and as an aside, I highly recommend Extreme Sample Converter to anyone who works with Soundfonts. Lets you easily preview each instrument in all of your Soundfonts, and you can even export individual instruments as their own SF2 files, or export individual samples as WAVs. It works with lots of other sample formats, too.

Again, soundfonts.darkesword.com. Roland Orchestral Percussion for the hits, and the saxophone on there is the best one I have.

DEFINITELY the Roland Orchestral Percussion for the hits. Not only are they quality, but have several different samples based on mode (major/minor/diminished). You can get them from the URL below. You'll also find a high quality Soprano Sax soundfont here as well for your saxophone needs. Otherwise, you might try SampleTank 2 Free, which has a decent Alto Sax.

Does anyone know where I can find a good erhu patch?

I've already got the chinese orchestral erhu soundfont, but it's not the sound I'm looking for at all. I've also got the erhu rex loops refill, but it's useless to me as I want to be able to construct proper melodies with a patch.

If anyone doesn't know what an erhu is, it's that oriental violin type instrument, it was used in the Shenmue soundtrack.

I'm looking for an industrial drum set (with "trash can" drums and the like). I don't know if anyone would be able to find that, but if you already have something like it, an industrial drumset would be appreciated.

Not sure if this is the right forum, but

1. I want rainforest ambience sounds

2. I want them to be free

3. I want them at CD quality resolution

lol, is this too much to ask? I've done some research, but not really found any free stuff. I could splash out a few bucks for something, but I like free shit. :D

Hi I'm looking for some quality ethnic samples. Mostly Celtic, but others would be awesome too. Some primary samples I'm looking for are: Uillean Pipes, Accordion, Bodhran (Irish Drum), and an Ethnic Fiddle sound.

thanks!

p.s. is there anyway to search text in a specific topic? That way I don't have to scroll through 49 pages of posts just to make sure this hasn't already been requested 100 times?

Well choirs have been requested many times before, but none of the links are working whitch is not a big surprise concerning they are so old.

I need good choir ahh too. Also I would like a good flute soundfont and heavy metal guitar. Thanks from the help

Ok, it took me long enough to read through all of these posts and I have compiled a list of VSTi's, Soundfont websites and some sample sites mainly from this forum.

Thanks for compiling that list. I'll slap that on the front page.
