Free Soundfonts - Download Sounds For Free

Free Soundfonts - Download Them HereFree Soundfonts - are they still of benefit?  Do they still exist today?  And do they get the job done when using them to make hip hop beats or other types of instrumentals?  While some think that the soundfont is extinct, or something of years past, the truth of the matter is, soundfonts are still being widely used today, and are still of great benefit in using them for music production.  They have proven to remain in the world today, even when other types of files or software has been pushed back to be replaced by other newer types of plugins and software.  So exactly what sustains the longevity of soundfonts?  And why are these sounds beneficial?

Free soundfonts have weight in being used to make tight rap beats, emotional R&B instrumentals, and other types of instrumentals or beats.  Actually, soundfonts in general, whether free or to buy, have weight in music production.  You may be wondering what keeps these sounds in the mix, and what makes them a benefit.  Here are some points that make them valuable today:
  • Imitation of Instruments - If you are looking for a musical instrument sound to add into your music production, whether you're using FL Studio, Reason, Cubase, or other software, soundfonts do a good job of imitating the instrument that it was created to be.  So, you won't need to visit your local piano player to add a piano sound to your mix for example.
  • Load Only One File - Unlike the counterpart WAV Samples, soundfonts are usually created as one instrument composed of WAV samples, and then packaged in what is called a Soundfont file.  So while you may find yourself loading 20 WAV Samples into your music production software to replicate an instrument, soundfonts are already created in that manner so that all you have to do is load one soundfont file which has 20 WAV samples packed into it, so that when you play your MIDI keyboard, it imitates the notes rather than you having to tweak each WAV sample individually.
  • Free Soundfonts Galore - It's harder to find a variety of free WAV samples that have all the notes of an instrument, versus finding lots of options to download sounds for free in the soundfont format.  You can find free soundfonts at SoundsForBeats.com on their free sounds page.
  • Works On Most Music Production Software - You'll find a great variety of music production software that soundfonts work well for, such as FL Studio, Reason (in the NN-XT rack tool), Cubase, Reaper, and others.  Simply load up your soundfont player plugin (Cakewalk's SFZ+ tool to me is the best recommended option) and load up your favorite soundfonts into your music!
With those few points above mentioned alone, soundfonts are worth their weight in gold, and show why they have sustained the hands of time, and why they are still beneficial.  You can load soundfonts into your digital audio workstation, add some effects, and completely enhance your instrumentals!  Make hip hop beats that blaze with them.  Create deep movie scores with them.  They are indeed versatile, and very beneficial to use in your mix.

If you have not yet used soundfonts before, or if you already use them when making hip hop beats or other instrumentals, you can jump on some free soundfonts with this article alone!  Download sounds for free and start making some powerful instrumentals today!
