It probably makes sense to add a FluidSynth setting to disable the EMU10K1 compatibility mode, like synth.volenv = "compliant" or "emu", with "emu" as the default. I've added a ticket for this:


Quoting Sebastian Biallas <address@hidden>:

I'm using fluidsynth to play piano using rosegarden and an old MIDI
keyboard (technics KN440).

Since fluidsynth 1.0.9 the sound output is way too dynamic. If I press a
key soft it's barely hearable and if I press it hard it's way to loud.
The corresponding changelog entry of version 1.0.9 seems to be:

"Volume attenuation SoundFont generator now behaves more like EMU10K1"

I have a EMU10K1 and indeed, the asfxload sound behaves like the new
fluidsynth. Unfortunately I prefer the old behaviour...

Is there any switch to change this? I might have a crappy keyboard (I
only recognized 7 different volumes looking at the MIDI traffic), but
the old sound dynamic of fluidsynth was really good.

Best wishes,
