This is Steinway_IMIS soundfont, version 2.2.
This version fixes the issue with loops. I hope this is the good one
and there are no more remaining major bugs.
Marcos is a little busy right now, so he asked me to make this fix. He
is thinking to make other improvements, so expect more updates soon.
Does anyone know of a good plugin that will generate subharmonics?
I would like to put a little more low frequency "oomph" into my bass
track. Preferrable LADSPA, but VST would work, too.
Thanks for any help!
Research tells me that QSynth seems to be the only currently
available/usable GUI for FluidSynth, but I get big xruns whenever I try and
use it. FluidSynth itself doesn't cause me problems (I know because I'm able
to use the FluidSynth-DSSI plugin fine in Rosegarden etc). The problem is
that I want to use FluidSynth with Ardour3, but Ardour3 doesn't support DSSI
plugins yet. So the only solution I have is to find a standalone interface
for FluidSynth and then to link up using Jack. I looked at the old GUI
'FluidGUI' but it seems to be so old that it won't properly install on
recent versions of Ubuntu.
So does anyone know of:
1) A GUI for FluidSynth other than QSynth and FluidGUI?... or
2) An application other than the above 2 which would allow me to load
Thanks in advance.

i have a machine with two pci devices of the same type. how can i ensure
persistent device indices?
the wiki  mentions a way for a way using vid/pid, but for pci devices it
suggests to write a udev rule.  has an example, but it only describes how to
set up the device names in /dev/snd. but how do i bind a specific device to an
alsa device index (hw:X)?
i recently built a 64 bit Ubuntu studio machine, and am looking for 64
bit packages - the Linux sampler home page only has 32 bit though.
does anyone know where i might find a package, compiled either for
Ubuntu or Debian?

Nice. It's probably quicker to copy the jack_ringbuffer.c file out of jack

Those friends can be really cranky sometimes though.
By using atomic operations instead, it's possible to avoid
a lot of headache by not having to synchronize at all.
Performance might be better too. Midishare has lockfree
atomic functions for lifo and fifi queues:
Probably not the greatest display of what you can do with a linux box
this, but we just released two albums and an ep yesterday. The albums
are grindcore of the short variety (both albums are 19 songs in just
above 2 minutes), but the ep (The Piece.....) is a simple acoustic
song in 5/4 with some weird stuff on top. Even managed to use zita-at1
in there. It'll only take you 7 minutes to listen to all the three
releases, so take a listen to the band that only exists because we
thought it was funny that noone had ever used this word in a bandname
I apologize for cross posting. I asked this on Alsa-Users a couple of
days ago but haven't received any responses. As it's about shopping I
might do this weekend I figured I'd try here also. Thanks in advance.
I'd like to pick up something to do simple mobile recording gigs with
my laptop. It needs to be USB 2.0 based, have 2 XLR inputs, support
headphone monitoring and preferably do 96KHz.
The M-audio Fast Track Pro seems to come closest although as I
understand it that device won't do 96K on all inputs and outputs at
the same time. Not a huge deal but one tick against for that.
What other devices do folks suggest I take a look at?
