Hello all,

i'm trying to use fluidsynth 1.0.5 under Mac OS X 10.3, but I have a strange error during at the start:

fluidsynth: error: Couldn't find the requested midi driver
Failed to create the MIDI thread; no MIDI input
will be available. You can access the synthesizer
through the console.
fluidsynth version 1.0.5

Type 'help' to get information on the shell commands.

I don't know which midi driver I have to use. Basically what I want to do is to use a midi player that see the fluidsynth as a software synth, instead to use the internal midi player.

You need to install MidiShare for OS X available from <http://www.grame.fr/MidiShare>

You also need to read the REAME-OSX file which gives a detailed account of how to install FS on OS X. If you check out the CVS version you will be able to get this README-OSX file.

Another question, I tried to see in the online help but i had no success, how can I assign to all the channels the same soundfont?

Could you supply more details: I am not sure I fully understand your question.


P.S. I will be away for 10 days so if nobody has answered your questions by then then I'll try to help.
