So a strong attack, then fading away rapidly to almost nothing?

I haven't got that soundfont, so I can't compare here.  Certainly with 
the soundfonts I do have, Fluidsynth produces a long level string 
tone when I play a long note.  The fonts I'm using probably just 
contain fairly straightforward sample loops.

You could always just try another soundfont, although one supplied 
with a card is probably more likely to be consistent and well 
balanced.  Still, the one I use most (Musica Theory 2) has pretty 
adequate solo strings.  I think I got it from Hammersound.
