the button. Select the Edit Tab towards the Top Right. Select DLSMusicDevice from the Sound Generator popUp, and click the image under the words "Sound Generator".
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.
