Where might all these samples be ?

A few of us are trying to put together a free and open General
MIDI compatible set of GUS pats, initially, in a way that the
raw samples can be built up into SoundFonts or even small light
weight gigasamples, or instrument patches of any kind.

Please excuse the blatant plug but I believe this is a good
cause and we _need_ (at first) free and open source samples
to suit GM/GS/XG instruments at http://freepats.opensrc.org
