> Worth knowing, I guess.
> And, all of a sudden, it works!
> I had to link in iiwusynth (it had managed not to be linked in at
> compile or install time, for some reason), and I then ran it with
> 'iiwusynth -m alsa_seq Unison.sf2' (after downloading and gunzipping the
> soundfonts, of course). Tried jackd, which got blocked, and then tried
> rosegarden anyway. Disappointment - nothing. Or _was_ there?=20
> alsamixer time, and yes, once I upped the volumes, it all works.=20
> Fantastic. Time for some composing, methinks.
> Thanks for everyone's help. The moral: use iiwusynth, not timidity!
