[linux-audio-user] rosegarden & fluidsynth/qsynth questions...

Hi all,

Thanks for all the help so far!

I've downloaded myself a nice-sounding drumkit soundfont, and have it 
loaded by fluidsynth (using qsynth).

I played with the settings in Rosegarden, by clicking my right mouse 
button on the appropriate MIDI track name. I can now hear all the 
samples when I click my left mouse button on the notes at the left of 
the notation editor.

However, when I throw a few notes together and press 'play', I only hear 
the note(s) which falls directly under the playhead at the moment 'play' 
is pressed.

Rosegarden seems to be sending the right MIDI notes somewhere - the 
little indicator flashes away just as I would expect. Correspondingly, 
the indicator in qsynth only flashes once, as the first beat is played.

Have I configured something incorrectly, or is this a bug? Please let me 
know if more (or clearer) information would help.

I did have this working some months previously - although I was never 
confident that I understood fully which MIDI output to pick in 
Rosegarden (especially when I had more than one instance of fluidsynth).
