When I import a MIDI songfile all the tracks default to “a-Reasonable Synth”.
I’d like to change that to “a-Fluid Synth” with a gm compliant soundfont. I would be nice to be able to easily change the default soundfont.
I tried “Calf Fluidsynth” Ardour 5.12.0 on a Ubuntu Studio 18.10. It crashes when I try to add to the plugin.
In test cases, I tried a lot of ways to change Reasonable to Fluid synth. Most of them didn’t work. So far, the best I have been able to come up with is tedious and time-consuming. Maybe, there is a better way I have not found.
I was wondering why there is not an option to delete a single plugin in a chain just “Clear (all)”, “Clear (pre-fader)”, and "Clear (post-fader). I would think folks replacing a single plugin in a chain would be fairly common. But, what do I know? I’ve just begun trying Ardour. And, I have not had time to do more than scratching the surface of the documentation.
