Here's my setup:
Redhat 7.3 Valhalla (latency kernel patch)
60GB UDMA, optimized
I've been on this setup for several months now. One day I just went
cold-turkey Linux and I have no regrets.... . except now I'm having
trouble replacing Cubase and Cakewalk features under Linux.
Looks like things are REAL close. For HD multitrack audio recording,
I'm working on getting ARdour going. But for composition... ahhh
Rosegarden looks like the one!
My BIG question: SOUND FONTS?
My 2nd Biggest question: Fatar MIDI keyboard. I can't seem to activate
my sound card's MIDI port in Linux for some reason. Where do I start?
I have a nice commercially licensed soundfont collection that I'd love
Given my system above, if anybody has particular knowledge with
goods/bads about it with respect to Rosegarden, please enlighten me.
Soundfont pointers are most welcome.
Thanks in advance.

We're getting there.

What about them? Load them into iiwusynth and play them through
Rosegarden like you would any other synth instrument. It's not a
problem. Alternatively if you have a soundcard you can load your
soundfonts on to do it that way.

What's your soundcard? Is it supported by ALSA properly? Have you
got ALSA installed properly? Check out the alsa-devel and alsa-user
mailing lists to get this working. I presume you're using ALSA
already in preference to aRts?
