This is also problematic because I can't use qjackctl to make the connection until fluidsynth is started but I don't seem to be able to start fluidsynth and give it a MIDI file without it starting to play the file immediately so by the time I've made the connections and hit "record" it is half way through.

You have to use a program that sync with jack transport. Both Rosegarden
and Muse can do this, and both come with fluidsynth.
