Yes they are the same instruments. The select commands all point to the same instrument, as can be seen by the set of commands i've posted.

At the very least, the soundfont needs to be loaded though, and the `select ` commands need to be used because the fluidR3 default loadup has one channel set to standard kit while everything else is the yamaha grand.

I want to be able to pitch bend on 16 channels, so using 0 and 1 isn't an option. Still, using 0 and 1 seems fine, but as i said all other channels alternate between loud and soft.
By the way i use pure data to control the midi input to fluidsynth, so there's nothing on the midi end of things that will function randomly.
