Though I should say it is totally counterintuitive. No user would guess how
to solve "open /dev/snd/midiC0D0 failed" problem. No wonder google does
not provide any examples of alsa_raw usage. Nobody managed that :-)

Hm... I beg to differ.

But I agree that the current command-line interface is a little counter intuitive when it comes to the options.

I would add this example to FluidSynth wiki so there were at least one proper place
that have workable example.

Thanks, that would be a very welcome contribution, I think.

I would also suggest developers to update man
and --help to cover this issue, and may be add separate options for specifying
device, when using alsa_raw. As a user I would expect to have such option.

FluidSynth has many, many options. Adding a dedicated switch for every one is not really possible, imho.
