 +Many different projects and environments use FluidSynth to deliver audio output from MIDI.  Desktop environments can be configured thus, for sound cards with no built-in MIDI capability. ​ [[apps:​all:​qsynth|Qsynth]] and [[apps:​all:​fluidsynth-dssi]] both provide GUIs, and there are others.
-In addition, a lot of other applications use FluidSynth, in its shared library version, for sound synthesis.  +{{tag>​alsa_seq jack_midi Softsynths_And_Samplers LASH LADSPA JACK soundfonts_and_related}}
