Realistic Metal Soundfonts?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend any free realistic sounding Heavy Metal Sound fonts?

I generally use an SC-55 Sound font, but I'd love to experiment a little.

I think SGMv2.01 does really well as a metal soundfont:

Layering any of these 3 drum soundfonts (RealAcousticDrums5, MelottiDrums, or TamaRockSTAR) overtop makes it much better:

The best metal guitar soundfonts I've found are LP.sf2 (Les Paul soundfont) and Heavy_Guitar_Collection.sf2:

I have a huge soundfont comparison video here, so you can compare various soundfonts, including the drum-only and guitar-only soundfonts that are great for layering over existing soundfonts:

If you want listen to/download/muck with as many soundfonts as possible, you can find tons of them here:

I too agree about the SGM soundfont, I'm using the drums for a "I sawed the demons" remake I'm doing and it sounds amazing. As for the others, ill check them out.

Touhou might also be a great soundfont for this:
