Hello Jimmy,

I was also experiencing this. Try increasing the Jack timeout delay (-t 2000 for example, to set it to 2 seconds).

I'm not sure why this is occurring. Makes me wonder if its related to what SoundFont is being loaded though.. Hmm.


Quoting jimmy <address@hidden>:

This is with this weekend SVN checkout of Fluidsynth, trying with a single soundfont for each of


playing the midi file from

   "mmacdonald.com/midi/XG/Conquistador 3K MM.MID"

wiht Unison.sf2, Fluidsynth completes the music OK.

I restart jackd, fluidsynth, aplaymidi everytime. The problem is when using SGM-V2.01.sf2 (always), or PC51f.sf2 (sometimes), Fluidsynth gives me error message that it lost connection to Jack server. The first 2-3 tries with PC51f.sf2, Fluidsynth never completed playing, after a few more tries, it does seem to play to completion. I still have yet to get to the conclusion of the song with SGM-V2.01.sf2. The messages:

cannot read server event (Connection reset by peer)
zombified - calling shutdown handler
fluidsynth: error: Help! Lost the connection to the JACK server

The error can be earlier (more consistent) with Fluidsynth "-v" (verbose) option.

The machine is 2.4GHz, 1 GB RAM, fairly recent Debian Sid. May be more problematic on slower hardware.
