... I have enough. How is it loaded ? With "sfxload" ?

... "much better" is not so interesting to me (if you think about
noise and latency or so... ) All I want is: The SF2 instruments should
be correctly sythesised (unlike FluidSynth string creation) and the
wavetable synthesizer should not omit some
notes (unlike ALSA emu10k1 driver). Both offers AWE-64 with 24 MB RAM extention.

Ok! I'll make a try.
