Arachno SoundFont is a General MIDI-compliant bank of 128 instruments/presets and 9 GM/GS drum kits, aimed at enhancing the realism of your MIDI files and arrangements.

It's meant to be used with a SoundFont 2.x-compatible MIDI synthesizer, either hardware (e.g. Sound Blaster Live!/Audigy/X-Fi) or software (like SynthFont, BASSMIDI Driver or CoolSoft VirtualMIDISynth).

This SoundFont project was first started somewhere in mid-2003, as a modified version of the "Magic SoundFont", by Dennis Deutschmann, for the author's own MIDI listening purposes, such as video game music listening or audio production.
