thanks a lot for your insight and comments (especially Adam for your time to
make measurements). After this short discussion I realize, that my approach to
control several softsynths by only one volume sweller sending Midi controller
message 7 to them individually seems not to be a good way to do it.

Obviously its far better to use a jackable master volume control device in front
of system playback (within QjackCtl) that is able to receive Midi controller
messages. I hope jackmix will do the job - I'm on my way to set it up. It seems
to be the program with the lowest footprint. If you have any other idea what to
use for the purpose please tell me.

Thanks again
