Noah, how are you starting qsynth ? Specifically, what fonts have you
tried ? I think fluidsynth has some troubles with large soundfonts, at
least I've been unable to use qsynth with the Fluid_R3 font. Works fine
with Creative's 8mbgmsfx.sf2 though.
Youve connected qsynth's audio output to alsa_pcm in the Qjackctl audio
connections panel ? Volume is up on the mixer ?
Please let me know what fonts you've tried. Details help. :)
