I need JACK because I include audio files in my sequences.  I can even use it on a 450 megahertz machine.  I've learned a lot about using it in the past few years.  I use Rosegarden, and it's easiest to record audio tracks using Rosegarden. 

I have learned how to use FluidSynth both ways, so I certainly can use it without JACK, if I choose to do so. 

Still, I appreciate your advice.

Aere, thank you for reporting this issue. I'd be willing to test this out but I actually have a deadline soon for some music I need to compose with FluidSynth. I can't have FluidSynth break in the next few weeks. Therefore, I'm very glad you warned me and I'll hold off upgrading to 11.10 until I finish this music.

After that (in about two weeks), I'll do the upgrade and then report back with my findings.

One thing to try though: you say you're using JACK. I've had serious problems with JACK in the past and decided it wasn't worth it. For years, I've just been using FluidSynth with ALSA and/or PulseAudio (it doesn't make much difference to me). So you might try those and see if they work for you.
