The crapness I noticed quite some time ago. I've been using the
eawpats set by Eric Welsh on my workstation for a while now, and it
sounds quite considerably better.

It's been on my todo list for months now to package this thing, but
I've put it off because it's big, and I only have a 56k modem at
present. Seems like an opportune time to get around to it.

Most of the set is public domain, but it contains a few patches which
have "no commercial use" clauses; notably, a couple of pistols and the
entire analog drum set. I'm going to experiment with removing,
replacing or remapping these, to try and create a free package (if I
can, I'll upload it to main and the removed patches to non-free).
