I have converted this SoundFont to the SF3 format (Oggvorbis compressed SF2) and shaved off roughly 100MB from the size. Would you like me to use that one instead in order to save space on the server and speed up downloads?

SF2 Advantages:

  • Probably slightly better sound quality
  • Original file from author
  • More widespread support

SF3 Advantages:

  • Hugely smaller size (20MB instead of 120MB)
  • Faster downloads and less space required on server

A third option would be to create two eopkg files, one with SF2 and one with SF3. Then the user could choose to download only the SF3 file if that's all he needs. It does take some more space on the server, but I think this would be the best solution.
