Title: Load Soundfont Button Fails Using Java Sound Synth

Detailed Description:

When you try to use the “Load Soundfont” or “Import Instruments” buttons, an error is reported, and it does not perform the requested action.

Cause Of Problem:

The Java Sound Synthesizer available with Java 1.6 does not currently support loading sound-fonts, or reporting the instrument definitions of the sound-font already loaded. At some point in the past, it used to support the loading of sound-fonts, and it may support it sometime in the future.


You can get around this problem by using SimpleSynth, AU Lab, or a VST sound-font player instrument.

Fix Available (in version):

No – There is no known way the software can work around this problem.
