Hi all,

* The warning will not be noticed if lazy desktop users will use qsynth 
(except qsynth grabs the output and converts it into a message box or 
something else)

* The issue came up when I tried a cool Rhodes soundfont which I found 
on http://learjeff.com/sf/sf.html
The soundfont is at 44.1kHz, while my USB audio card only runs at 48kHz.
This leads to a detuned result. I was asked if I couldn't use permanent 
pitchbend but it's not enough: The detune is slightly more than two 
semitones ;-) .

The question is if fluidsynth will ever be able to resample soundfonts 
on the fly to avoid detuning. I have not enough technical knowledge; I 
guess it could be technically done while the audio result is not 

Any opinions?

Thanks & best regards
