Pedro, I won't call it controversy. I just pointed out that I'd rather work driven by requests than by wishes of completeness. Graham has given a reason good enough to not just update that driver but also give it some priority. I like that users get involved in development making requests in this way, it's usually better than we developers doing the things we like or feel compelled by. :)

Oh, sorry - forgot this one point as well...
If fluidsynth has ASIO support and this was available in Miditzer,
then we could use WineAsio drivers in WINE to connect straight to
JACK. Currently we can't use the built in fluidsynth that comes with
Miditzer when running it in WINE (Linux) - hugh latency, but use
Qsynth externally and re-route the MIDI data.

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!

Yes, it is planned to update and enable again PortAudio, which is already
present in the source tree, but currently doesn't compile. PortAudio V19
supports ASIO backend for Windows. There is some controvesy about
PortAudio here. You may want to add your comments to this ticket:
