Yeah! for example... This song sounds like a song from the N64, and contains some of their instruments.
I think this song could be very nice with the N64 instruments ;D

This song always reminds me the Castlevania 64:

Indeed, some of music in Dawn of Sorrow sounds like Castlevania 64, and there's a reason for that.

Both Dawn of Sorrow and Castlevania 64 share one composer: Masahiko Kimura.
Masahiko Kimura also worked on converting the music from DraculaX: Rondo of Blood, to SNES chiptune music.

It's possible that some of the non-Rondo tunes (such as the pre-battle ominous music used before the first boss in the SNES game) were done by him.  However, since there are multiple composers credited for Rondo of Blood and DraculaX, this is cannot be confirmed.

Now i understand everything! that's really interesting!

The first time when i heard one part of the song "Dracula's Tears" i was thinking that song is a remix of "Castle Center" from Castlevania 64.

Oh... Castlevania 64 was my childhood :'(
but changing the subjet... I made this recently. But the last instrument sounding in the song isn't from the castlevania 64 soundfont. That instrument is from the Command and conquer Soundfont for N64 (nothing to do).

When you get to the chime instruments used in the Tower of Sorcery, you'll be able to recreate the last instrument at the end of the Dark Chapel music loop.
Sounds great so far!

Strange as this may seem I have noticed that the instruments for LOZ:OOT and Paper Mario 64 sound remarkably similar to CV64's and CVLOD's instrument set. (I have a soundfont based on instruments from Zelda 3 and OOT made by TSSF if anyone is wondering)

Haha, I was exporting the instruments from Castlevania LoD. That's why i couldn't find the Violin, But Finally we did it! ;D

I Don't know what the hell is happened with my notebook XD But anyways... Here are the links:

http://www.mediafire.com/?1ej8dn4kjptbzf6 (Violin 3)
http://www.mediafire.com/?od4d4bbmp8355pj (Violin 4)

Although I may not be available all the time (stupid social life, always cutting into my projects!), I can try and help like I did before.

EDIT:
Here's a little test I did.

Nice sample, but it only works with long, sweeping notes.  You couldn't use it for short notes because the attack is too long.

I have Patricio's Soundfont and a Castlevania 64 and Legacy of Darkness roms (I didn't have these two games in my childhood :( ) and his SF sound a bit incomplete,so....

Here's a soundfont I tried to rip from the CV roms....
http://www.mediafire.com/download/kb235rqjr5u5k98/Castlevania_64_and_Legacy_of_Darkness.sf2

....And some examples:

http://www.mediafire.com/listen/8awclm41fw6027h/Master_Librarian's_Theme_-_CV64_Style.mp3

I didn't made the MIDIs.... I just took The Pinnacle from some site I forgot.... (But I think who made it was Jorge Fuentes) and the rest, from vgmuseum.com/mrp/ (Author: Mina-chan)

I did it because of a old topic named "Castlevania 64 Instruments! (link)" made by PHBelmont and this soundfont is like a gift for his great Castlevania remixes, but why not share with anyone else?
So.... enjoy! :D

Up-to-date 07/14

I update the soundfont and their respectives examples musics:

- Sorry for the Demon Guest House error  :-[
- Sorry for the sound mess called DoS Vampire Killer, but if anyone liked it (?), it still up there  :)

Up-to-date 07/26

Soundfont updated again and now with the Intro violin..... but as Fuentes already said, this notes are long and it's very difficult to make them shorter....
And CoTM Vision of Dark Secrets (vgmusic.com) is there as violin example.

Up-to-date 08/08

Soundfont updated with new instruments and with the Mysterious Coffin Soundtrack bug fixed.

Final (?) Up-to-date 31/12

First: Happy New Year, mates.

Now about the Soundfont:

- I managed to short the Violin's sound. It's in New Violin for people who liked to use the old long one.
- Bongos :D
- Different crash cymbals for each Drumsets.
- And Master Librarian's Theme for Bongo examples.

Sorry for the very long time to make this update post, 'cause I'm working on a 'lil project. >.>

So... Enjoy! :)
