By my fellow Finn Lauri Polvinen:

LauGM_v1.1.sfkr . Compressed size: 39.5 MB, uncompressed: 124 MB. This is a GM SoundFont with 128  melodic GM presets and 7 percussion presets. Says Lauri: "I've prioritised expressiveness and decently small size over sheer fidelity, so don't be alarmed if you find some parts idiosyncratic or of lesser quality compared to some huge soundfonts. Nevertheless, everything should be fine for the purposes of playing PC games with General MIDI support. I also removed stereo effects from most solo instruments as it'd otherwise mess with panning. Often there was a specific kind of timbre I was looking for that'd make certain compositions sound the way I wanted them to. I also didn't include any GS instruments save for some drums."

NOW, how about a really LARGE one (published 4th July 2014):
When you are ready for something really large - and great - then download Musyng Kite SoundFont (extensive overhaul of Evanessence - formerly called Musical Box, which initially began as Musica 7) by Cose Vidal, from Galicia. The compilation is created by this devoted SynthFont and Viena user between 2011 and June 2014. Says Cose: "This Musyng Kite bank is mostly a mix and compilation of samples from my own collection and many collections of SoundFonts and samples in public domain - to all of you out there, many, many THANKS for making this possible. Add to this many hours of my own time and work. It is a free SoundFont, thus not meant to be sold for commercial purposes. But the SoundFont is royalty-free so you can use it in your personal and commercial tracks as you like. And you can edit it freely"

Musyng Kite sound bank features 5743 samples and 219 presets. The download file size is 339 MB and the  uncompressed file size is 990 MB.

Download it from But wait! There is more! Vidal has a still larger version of Musyng and you can get it here as well. The full Musyng is 573 MB as a compressed sfPack file and 1.6 GB as the uncompressed SoundFont.

You also need the old SFPACK SoundFont compression program to extract the SoundFont from the compressed file.
If you create symphonic music you may want to download this large package: the Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra by Mattias Westerlund.

The version offered here contains the audio material in the form of OggVorbis files while the original package contains standard WAV files. The package does NOT consist of  SoundFonts but of "SFZ" files (which are text files, easy to edit). SynthFont will extract the WAV files from the OGG files when needed, provided you have the latest installation of SynthFont with all required DLL library files. You can then remove the OGG files at any time later.

The package consists of 10 files in the WinRar archive format. You need WinRar or the free utility "7 Zip" to extract the package. The first 8 parts are 10MB in size, part 09 is 7.18MB while the SFZ archive file is only 25 kB. You need them all!
