What is a SF2 file?

The .sf2 file extension is most commonly used for SoundFont 2 sound bank files. These files define a group of audio samples (commonly referred to as a patch collection) that are played back using MIDI data on a user's computer. The SF2 file may contain loops, envelopes, layers, instruments and other sound bank information. The SF2 file format is commonly used to save custom patches and software instruments.
