First of all thanks to you all for the interest.

At this point I think I need to explain my project.
I'm working on a live and mobile midi expander using raspberry PI as hardware 
and linux as SO.
I thought that fluidsynth could be a fast and good engine due to low latency 
and the use of soundfonts as instruments, but not so good as a midi router.
In live performances I just would like to connect my controllers to the 
raspberry and use it.
So, as you can guess, I will not have so much control on it and for the first 
release I'm just trying to set up the software at home contextually to the 
performance I'm going to play.
Till now I've been able to setup fluidsynth to autostarting on boot and let to 
autoconnect the controllers to the hardware (raspberry PI).
This is the fluidsynth string on RPI autostart I'm using right now for a 
percussion pad controller: 
fluidsynth --audio-driver=alsa  -m alsa_raw -o midi.alsa.device=hw:1 -o 
audio.alsa.device=hw:0 -o synth.polyphony=16  -c 4  -g 1.4 /instruments/xxx.sf2
This configuration (for now) is a good compromise between my old RPI and low 

As you can see the midi alsa driver used is alsa_raw, that is the only method 
i've found to autoconnect the midi controller to the hardware.

I have to confess that i'm not so smart as programmer and honestly not so smart 
with the english language too :)

That said, I'm not really sure that all the tools you suggested will work with 
this configuration... what do you think about?

Regards, Max
