    discoDSP has also released the Zvon Discovery Pro Wave Bank, a free bank for Discovery Pro users.

    The original samples from which this soundfont is derived are from the University of Iowa collection. The samples actually in the Zvon WB (Winds and Brass) discoDSP SoundFont are those new samples and none of the University of Iowa original samples are used in it.

    There are 15 programs. The first 7 are solo instruments and the 8 others are combis: Bass clarinet, alto sax, clarinet, oboe, trumpet, french horn and tenor trombone.

    Available from the discoDSP members area.
