Ok, assuming one SF3 file x taking 5 seconds to load using one fluidsynth console application a1.

Now we should try the suggested test to run 2 fluidsynth console applications (a1, a2) at the same time (not sequencially) and measure the total time.

This will run your 2 applications in two threads and if your CPU has 2 cores this should take ~5 seconds to load the 2 files in parallel (instead of ~10 second on one CPU core).

This is the best we could expect using parallel loading.
