Package details

Summary: Patch set for MIDI audio synthesis

Freepats is a project to create a free and open set of GUS
compatible patches that can be used with softsynths such as
Timidity and WildMidi. They are verified to contain no non-free
restriction. Freepats is distributed under GPL v2 or later, with
the follow exception clause about the relation of MIDI composition
and patches:

As a special exception, if you create a composition which uses
these patches, and mix these patches or unaltered portions of
these patches into the composition, these patches do not by
themselves cause the resulting composition to be covered by the
GNU General Public License. This exception does not however
invalidate any other reasons why the document might be covered
by the GNU General Public License. If you modify these patches,
you may extend this exception to your version of the patches,
but you are not obligated to do so. If you do not wish to do so,
delete this exception statement from your version.

This patch set is of limited quality, because some instruments are
still missing. For personal use, feel free to use other patch sets
(such as eawpatches which has excellent quality, but the site is
no more), or other free soundfonts.
