Anthony Deaton has announced the release of Anthony’s Philharmonic, a free collection of orchestral instruments in SFZ and SF2 (soundfont) formats.

New sample library in 44.1 kHz 16 bit. Three velocity layers of chromatically sampled instruments with major and minor trills, long and short crescendo, and long and short diminuendo.

Just go to and click on the picture of the instrument that you would like to download. Then you will have the choice of SFZ or SF2. SFZ is the recommended format.

I hope you find this project useful.

Currently, the collection contains 6 free instruments: flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, alto saxophone and steinway grand piano.
