General MIDI Instrument Library

The General MIDI Instrument Library defines the sound of 128 melodic instruments and 47 percussion instruments. Here is a small sampling of sounds from the GM library. These were generated by converting a MIDIFile to a WAV file using the ME1000 Ringtone Engine, then converting the WAV file to an MP3.
