[PlanetCCRMA] No sound from swami
Fri Sep 15 10:40:02 2006
I am trying to use swami for the first time. The CCRMA version is
loaded. Fluidsynth loads fonts and plays midi by itself. It appears
that swami is not configured correctly to interface with fluidsynth.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. The details from a session are
presented below. Thanks.
FROM TERMINAL SCREEN:

Load sound fonts and intrument (Piano 1) from swami. No sound occurs
when the piano keys are pressed. Lines apprear under keyboard leading
me to believe that fonts are loaded.
I then Edit->Preferences and note:
Device blank Default checked
Buffer Size 16 Buffer Count 2
Device bland Default checked
I tried different configurations jack, alsa, etc. Setting don't seem
to be saved because the old preferences pop up with is try preferences
