sounds, setBfree for organs); I'd add the jRhodes3 soundfont and (to a
lesser extent) the MDA ePiano plugin to the list for electric piano.

I recently wrote up some thoughts on Sonatina after writing a short
track with it here:

If you're looking for synth samples, then I'd playfully suggest that
you're Doing It Wrong :) If you want a good workhorse for typical synth
sounds, TAL NoiseMaker is a great option -- it's easy to program, sounds
great, and comes with a bunch of presets.

Definitely check out petri-foo (standalone app) and samplv1 (standalone
and LV2 plugin) -- they both combine simple sampling with a more
complete synthesis engine (envelopes, LFOs, resonant filters, etc.).
Neither will let you create an instrument that uses a bunch of different
samples, but they're very useful for turning a plain sample in to a more
expressive instrument.

Thanks
