3.6. QSynth

QSynth is a Fluidsynth GUI front-end application written in C++ around the Qt3 toolkit using Qt Designer. Eventually it may evolve into a softsynth management application allowing the user to control and manage a variety of command line softsynth but for the moment it wraps the excellent FluidSynth. FluidSynth is a command line software synthesiser based on the Soundfont specification.

It could be useful to use soundfonts if you do not have a Soundblaster card. See Section
