Just something to keep in mind. I don't know about your hardware, but 
with mine, theres a limit on the size of a sound font that can be loaded 
into the wave table. When I tried to load a 128MB file, only certain 
sounds got loaded. But with Timidity using the same sound font, it all 
loaded and was usable. Just something to keep in mind. I'm glad someone 
else posted this (prior) to me aquiring the 128MB sound font. Otherwise, 
I would have loaded it into the wave table and assumed that there were 
only a few sounds in the sound font. I probly would have disgaurded the 
sound font and lost out on some really good sounds.
