    Importing http://zenvoid.org/audio/acoustic_grand_piano_ydp_20080910.sf2 produce this acoustic_grand_piano_ydp_20080910.ins

    How does this translate into the intended sound? The resulting sound is the same as with

    [General MIDI]
    0=Acoustic Grand Piano
    [Roland GS Capital Tones]
    0=Piano 1
    [XG Bank 0]
    0=01 GrandPno
    

    in gmgsxg.ins.

    Thanks!

    You need to load the soundfont file into a MIDI synthesizer, and connect VMPK to that synthesizer. For more details, please read http://vmpk.sourceforge.net/#MIDI_concepts

    VMPK does not produce sound by itself. This sentence is written on several places, but is seldom understood.
