Thanks Pedro,

I have created an account on the trac but can't login yet... so
sending some comments here:

The jOrgan and Miditzer virtual pipe organ projects (jOrgan is
opensource and free - Java based and runs on Linux, Win32 and Mac,
Miditzer is closed source but free and runs on Win32 - or through
WINE) both use fluidsynth as sound sources. On the forums for both of
these programs there are always complaints about latency issues,
particularly as the sample sets get bigger and more complicated. Some
have moved to SFZ or Linuxsampler as both of these offer ASIO audio,
which allows the latency to be significantly reduced. If adding
PortAudio to fluidsynth will allow fluidsynth to use ASIO devices
drivers in Win32 then this would greatly simplify the use of
fluidsynth with these programs and would get more people using

Thanks for all the work that has already been done to get free
non-card based sf2 to normal users like us!
