So i was on archive.org digging around like I tend to do when board and sound a killer sound font.
https://archive.org/details/SGM-V2.01
Has anyone her mess with it?
But the bigger question, can it be used with the sound blaster soundfount bank manger in 98 on a live or Audigy? \

I attached to samples of it.

I'm afraid not, because SBLive! can't load SoundFonts larger than 64MB and SGM is ~240MB, so even with the Audigy you might have trouble, considering most people have 256MB of RAM on their Win98 PCs. Maybe on an Audigy with 512MB RAM.

I didn't know Kx drivers surpassed that. However, Kx has no support for Windows 98 since version 5.00.3537
And yes, I did look it up to know if they even supported Win98 to begin with, and to my surprise, they did.

You asked about Windows 98, where you can't use more than 512 MB RAM anyway, unless you use rLoew's RAM patch. And Audigy is only limited by your system RAM anyway (so is Live! apparently with Kx drivers, but not with Creative Drivers, where it's limited to 64MB)

There is a newer version of this sound font that's approximately 300mg called "SGM-v2.01-NicePianosGuitarsBass-V1.2". There are also other variations people have made to this soundfont you can find online.

It is possible to commit no errors and still lose. That is not a weakness, that is life.
