Mats Helgesson is the man who, in 2003, gave to the world the best free piano bank, the famous Maestro Concert Grand v2. Like many people, I searched it on the web, found it, lost it again, because this bank appeared, and disappeared as Mats found a site to host it or not... Finally, with his permission, i decided to host it myself, in order to make it available for everyone.
But you must have a sampler that can read and play the gigasampler format to use it, like Halion, Kontakt, VSampler, or Gigastudio of course... The only freeware that can read this format are Synthfont
and Linux Sampler
