    Just do a search on www.google.com. I found tons of places with free downloads, and some that charge minimal fees.
  3. Hi Whitenoise, sounds like you need some soundfont (.sf2) files.
    Soundfont files are basically .wav samples wich were converted into MIDI controlable instruments and can be loaded into the (soundfont compatible !) soundcard's memory. (Soundblaster AWE series, SB Live, SB Audigy, E-MU, ...)
    You can even make your own soundbanks with your own samples. (with Vienna sound studio)
    If you don't have a soundfont compatible soundcard, there is a software solution, but I can't remember the name of the program ... sorry.
