Hi, Christian
Many thanks for this interesting study about the 'state of the art' of the SoundFont format and 'sampler' synthesizers.
When you write "It is 2016. Gone are the days when dedicated audio processing hardware is required to achieve a professional sound....".
You are right. In fact this is true since years 2000. Hardware sampler AWE 32 was born in 1996 and it was 32 voices polyphony capable.
Now, on a 2.4 GHz CPU (only one core) one can run FluidSynth with 336 voices polyphony, that is 10 x AWE 32 with the bonus of
Many thanks for you chart tests. Just one question, how long it took to do this work ?
I encourage anyone who is interested to give it a read.

Have a great day too.

Dear FluidSynth developers and fellow SoundFont aficionados,

I have recently completed a very thorough review of the current landscape of SoundFont-compatible software, including DAW plugins, virtual GM devices and SoundFont editors. You can read the results of this study in my blog post, Using SoundFonts in 2016. I ran a number of SoundFont synths through my test suite, and FluidSynth came out the big winner. Besides test results, there is also a wealth of SoundFont-related info, so I would encourage anyone who is interested in the current state of the SoundFont format to give it a read.

I hope you all have a great day!
