ATM, you can only get the names of the soundfont presets, see preset iteration 


Everything below that level, i.e. which samples belong to which instruments and 
which instruments to which presets, is currently internal to fluidsynth.

What could be implemented pretty straight forward is iterating over all the 
samples that a soundfont has. This might also include lonesome samples, that 
are not linked to any instrument. Also, you would not know which samples belong 
to which preset and the soundfont instrument layer would be invisible as well.

Implementing an iteration over all instruments of a preset as well as all 
samples of an instrument would need some discussion, but it would make sure 
that you only see instruments and samples that are actually used. In this case 
it would be good to know what's the benefit you're intending by displaying 
sample names to the user and what else you're planning to do when you have the 
sample. Thinking of e.g. changing the sample's wave form and manually spawning 
voices from it.
