Good General MIDI compatible soundfonts for use with Fluidsynth
 
Can anybody recommend me a good General MIDI sount font (.sf2) to use with Fluidsynth? I want to compose some good MIDI music and I really like Fluidsynth, but unfortunately a lot of sites lead to broken links and missing files.

I've been searching for a while now and I've not found a good GM soundfont as yet. I would be glad for any recommendations.

there is an 8mb gm bank here
http://members.lycos.co.uk/darrellnet/samples.htm
that is free and very good
i would avoid trying to buy the non free ones here, the guy is a jerk and the downloads are windows only

if you feel like using a bigger one my favorite is
http://www.personalcopy.com/home.htm
on the left click on soundfonts for linux
and download the one labled PersonalCopy 5.1f
it has an absolutely killer piano
beyond belief.

happy tunes
