Suggestion #4: Better GM-Soundbank/VST-Support?

Oracle is offering Soundbanks as download for Java-Sound API,

Three versions of enhanced MIDI soundbanks are available in different sizes from the Java Sound web site:

Files to download:
==================
soundbank-mid
soundbank-deluxe
soundbank-min

From that source I got the actual soundbank for my PC.

-- But, would it be possible to add this three soundbanks into the TuxGuitar-Distribution-Packet for Windows? I don't know who has the copyright, but Oracle takes no charge for this download...

Furthermore, there's an interesting Source for MIDI-knowledge at:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/sound-dev-guide-1-159173.pdf

If Sun/oracle ist not willing to permit copies of that files in a TuxGuitar Distribution, these links could be added to the Help-Files.

-----------------------------------------

Could it be that a next TuxGuitar-Version might support Virtual Studio Technology (VST, developed by Steinberg) and VST-Instruments? That could mean much improvement for sounds, I think.

If you have some time, listen to some samples at:

Sounds great, compared with GM, doesn't it?
