Here is a link to a preview of the instrument database I am working on:

Its not quite yet ready, but it will give you an idea of whats in store.
It should work with GigaSampler at this point, but I haven't thoroughly
tested it yet.

I was thinking that bittorrent would probably not be ideal for an
instrument database.  This is because generally its a lot of downloads
spread over a wide selection of files.  bittorrent seems more useful for
the case when there is a new release of a large file that gets hammered,
but as the file becomes less popular the number of sources diminishes
drastically as users close their clients.  I was thinking of using the
edonkey network for this reason in addition to WWW/FTP mirrors (rsynced

Resonance Instrument Database features (some still in the works):
- ed2k links for the edonkey network
- All files compressed with CRAM (Compress hybRid Audio Media)
- rating/comment system
- instrument/sample information imported directly from patch files
- preview instruments using ogg streaming and a form for sending MIDI
notes (GStreamer media server using FluidSynth or other soft synth)

Not sure what kind of collaboration would make sense, but I'm open to
ideas.  Cheers.
