#2275 closed defect (fixed)

ALL: FluidSynth too loud

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: eriktorbjorn
Priority: normal Component: Audio
Keywords: Cc:


I've heard reports that the FluidSynth MIDI driver is
too loud. This probably depends on which SoundFont is
used. With the one I tried, the default volume was much
too low, so I cranked up the "synth.gain" setting from
its default (0.2, I believe) to 2.1. I'm not sure how
gain is defined, but it might be dB.

So perhaps we should make this configurable, but I'm
not sure what the best way to handle floating-point
settings is.

The attached patch is completely untested, and might
not even compile. I've never managed to compile
FluidSynth under MinGW.

I've lowered the default gain of FluidSynth, and made the
setting configurable. Currently there is no GUI for it, but
it should still be enough to close this bug report.
