    Hi!
    as i understand, sound-font files can replace the sounds that the computer
    uses to play midi files.

    I did a goggle search on "The Sound Site" and it came up with this URL.
    http://www.smm.org/sound/nocss/top.html - sponsored by the Science Museum of
    Minn. I found NO fonts, buts its an interesting site.

    I too know of that site, but that is not the one I am speaking of. www.thesoundsite.net appears to be non-existant.

    To do this, you need soundfont compatible hardware (Creative Labs
    SBLive/Audigy/AWE cards), or some kind of software soundfont player, or a
    plugin software sampler that supports soundfonts (if you are using a
    plugin-capable sequencer)

    www.hammersound.net is getting a bit old now but still has some decent
    content.
