So now that Beast can read GUS files, I did some digging to see if this would also have the effect of loosely adding SF2 support to Beast.

oh really?
see, the GUS Patch loader doesn't really work yet. we're simply reading the
patches as ordinary mono samples, since the GUS envelope module isn't fully
finished yet.

unsf actually produces non-standard GUS Patch files, it uses its own
extensions to the GUS Patch format which would have to be implemented seperately in the GUS Patch Envelope modules. stefan, are you planning
to do this?
however long-term, native soundfont support would be nice to have
in beast anyways ;)
