Title: Static-Sounds Heard While Playing Java Sound Synth

Detailed Description:

While playing the Java Sound (Gervill) Synthesizer, 'crackling' (static) sounds are heard occasionally, or the sound cuts-out a lot.

Cause Of Problem:

Your machine is not fast enough to play the Java Sound (Gervill) Synthesizer.

Work-Around:

Use Qsynth instead. Machines that are not fast enough to play the Java Sound (Gervill) Synthesizer may still be fast enough to play Qsynth – especially if you also use JACK. If it's not fast enough to play Qsynth, you can still play sound-cards having hardware synthesizers, or play an external synthesizer (or sound module) through a MIDI interface.

Fix Available (in version):

The only fix for this, if it's the latter problem, is to use a faster machine.
