#2275 closed defect (fixed)

ALL: FluidSynth too loud

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: eriktorbjorn

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.
