Getting all notes from a soundfont - Audacity?

  What I'm trying to do is to generate a set of MP3 files for various instruments (including synthesized sounds)  at each key of the chromatic scale over 2 octaves.    The brute-force method is to dig out the cheap old midi keyboard from the loft, put it through a software synth and record, note by note.  However,  I've just discovered Soundfonts which are a packaged set of samples at some (but not all) notes in the octave  for an instrument which are used to generate a full sample set for a synth.  This would appear to be a method which will give a better result for less effort.  Audacity apparently can do things with soundfonts, but will it allow me to generate a full scale?  Is there other (Windows) software available which will do what I'm after?
