A. Create a Software Instrument track. Once it's created click the button. Select DLSMusicDevice from the Generator popUp (if this is not visible, click the Details button first to reveal it), and then click the icon at the far right.

Finally, choose the SoundFont you wish to use from the Sound Bank popUp menu.

NOTE: Some SoundFonts do not work directly with GarageBand. The first three I Downloaded did not work, but most of the rest I’ve looked at have worked well.

The shareware application SoundFont Synth is reported to handle all .sf2 files, and is reported to offer easy access to all the Sound Banks stored in a font (though I have never tested it myself) ... many controllers will also offer access to alternate banks.
