How do I get soundfonts to work?

Alright, I really want guitar sounds. I watched the PCMSynth overview video and saw the Seagull Acoustic Guitar working so I found it, downloaded it, decompressed the SfArk to an SF2 file, and tried loading in the PCMSynth with no success. It isn't showing up in the list of options. I checked the SF2 in Viena to make sure it works (which it does) and even created another SF2 by running it through SF2 Splitter. I still can't get it to show so I need some help. What exactly is the process of using an SF2 file and why was it showing up in the overview video but not on mine? I looked in the manual but didn't see anything on it.

Thanks,
Bryson

What do you mean "list of options" ?

The easiest way to add sf2's is to copy them into the /caustic/presets/pcmsynth/ folder. Then press the preset display to bring up the selection popup. Your soundfont should be there...

I put the SF2's in the caustic/samples/pcmsynth folder. What I meant by a list of options was "sample options"... Anyway, it is working now so I thank you very very much.
