FluidSynth

FluidSynth

FluidSynth is a console based real-time software synthesizer based on the SoundFont 2 specifications.

FluidSynth can read MIDI events from a MIDI input device and render them to an audio device using SoundFont instruments. SoundFont files are composed of digital audio "samples" and additional instrument parameters. These files can be created or downloaded off the Internet.

FluidSynth also has support for controlling effects in real time and can play MIDI files. Simply run fluidsynth with the SoundFont and the list of MIDI files to play.

A number of applications depend or use FluidSynth including Swami, QSynth, MusE, FluidGui, and The Miditzer. It has also been used in the MicrotonalISM project of the Network for Interdisciplinary Studies in Science, Technology, and Music.

For an attractive interface for FluidSynth, check out Qsynth.
