Great, thanks for testing it.

I think this is probably the best reason to consider parallel loading.
Moving more into the direction of parallel operations and reducing the
size of mutex protected code areas is going to help to keep fluidsynth
relevant in the future.

So in my opinion, doing the work to make the sample cache and maybe
even the whole soundfont loading mechanism work in parallel seems like
a good idea and worth the effort.
