It is dramatic. It is very dramatic! Please have a look at


and compare the hardware synthesis with FludiSynth synthesis.
You need practically "no ears" to hear that there are no
strings, at all. That disfigures the whole bigband sound.

But I think I can stop the discussion here: The newest CVS version
of TiMidity++:


does the job very well. You cannot hear any difference
between TiMidity++ synthesis and hardware synthesis.
And if: TiMidity++ is better.
