I've finally got sound for midi working with Mandrake 6/ kmultimedia
1.1.1. Kmid sound is terrible (checked all 6 combos). Is there a
better synthesizer? The sound with Kmidi is ok - I went out and
picked up some patches. Sure is a cpu penalty w/ timidity - 80-90%
versus 3-5% w/ Kmid synth. The main problem with Kmidi is that it is
not dragon drop and cannot make midi file packages readily.
All-in-all, the sound doesn't come up to the quality in windows. I'm
running YamahaSoftSynth with Juke as a front end. Real tough time
finding midi stuff for linux... seems like it's becoming a dead art.
