Thanks again for the detailed explanation.

As I also wrote on the Fluidsynth dev list I'm essentially after two 
possible use cases:
1. Record different instruments from a "general midi" soundfont (on 
different midi channels) independently e.g. in Ardour on a track per 
2. Record drums from a drum soundfont independently to their own track 
in the DAW (Ardour). In that case I would be sequencing each drum on its 
own (MIDI) channel.

I'm not sure if / how -L might help on 2. as there still doesn't seem to 
be a way to route a (midi) channel to an audio output.
