Research tells me that QSynth seems to be the only
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.
There is a list of applications using Fluidsynth in this page:
A few of them are GUI interfaces: FluidGUI, FluidSynthGUI and Gluid. FluidSynthGUI is for
windows only, and the Gluid web site is down now...
Anyway, I see that you already solved your problem. I want only to explain that the same
libfluidsynth engine is used (as a shared library or DLL) by the fluidsynth CLI program
and the QSynth GUI. You should be able to use the same settings on both front-ends,
getting the same results. The default settings may be different, though. To see the
current settings with the command line program, use the "settings" command at
the internal shell prompt. You can see the same data in QSynth: Setup button->Settings
