A real-time software synthesizer based on the SoundFont 2 specifications. It can be used for live audio synthesis of MIDI events or for rendering MIDI files to disk, using SoundFont instruments. It can also be embedded in other applications.
This is not a application with a graphical user interface, however there are several GUI applications which utilize FluidSynth.
- Live playing: play on your MIDI keyboard and hear the results
- Play back MIDI files (or render to disk)
- Embeddable library: use as a renderer in your own application
how do you run this?
