Not fluid or a sound font, but nicer sound anyway :)
Open Ardour
Add a midi track
Put DrumGizmo in the processor box
jack_lsp output shows:
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 3
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 4
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 5
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 6
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 7
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 8
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 9
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 10
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 11
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 12
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 13
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 14
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 15
ardour:MIDI/audio_out 16

You can either process them externally or send them to their own tracks 
and process internally.
