“As the name of the site says, you will find here a list mainly devoted to synthesizers, but you will find also virtual instruments of other types, much fewer…
This list of freeware is not like the others that are on the web and has something special : it gives to you links for only the best free virtual instruments (for Windows), and is the result of many and long researches, after testing around one thousand instruments. My purpose is to avoid you getting stuck with the same job… All instruments are classified, but in an approximative way… When available, versions for other OS and formats are mentioned”

RGB Music Lab-Pixels Into Music

“GB MusicLab converts RGB (Red, Green and Blue) value of an image to chromatic scale sounds. The program reads RGB value of pixels from the top left to the bottom right of an image. One pixel makes a harmony of three note of RGB value, and the length of note is determined by brightness of the pixel. RGB value 120 or 121 is the center C, and RGB value 122 or 123 is added a half steps of the scale that is C#. Pure black that is R=0, G=0, B=0 is no sounds.”
