Ok, I got it! At the end of:


You'll find 3 files:

   - strings_hardware.mp3 (67K)
   - strings_timidity.mp3 (121K)
   - strings_fluid.mp3 (71K)

produced by hardware midi synthesizer, TiMidity++, and
FluidSynth. It is the same midi and the same
soundfont (8mbgmsfx.sf2).

In contrast to TiMidity++ and the hardware midi synthesizer
FluidSynth produces a clear attack.

Inside a big orchestra this leads to inaudible strings.
Or - if you increase the volume - to "attacking" strings.
