Sibelius 4 + Wine (MIDI playback issues)
I wasn't sure if this belonged here or in Multimeda, but I think this forum is a safe bet
I'm using Timidity for midi playback, but there's some issues. For one, the sound set is completely different from the Windows default one. Numerous sounds are missing (for instance most of the synth tracks), and others sound completely different (this is a huge issue for the drum track since the tom sounds are extremely low and boomy).
Furthermore, playback can be very rough at times (speeding up and slowing down, skipping time, etc.) especially when there's a lot of notes at once.
These issues seem mostly due to Timidity, but I wouldn't doubt that Wine is compounding the problem.
Anyone have any suggestions? I've tried installing fluidsynth but this doesn't appear in Sibelius' MIDI playback dialog.
