Being an amateur music composer who likes instrumental music, why are so many MIDI programs so outdated and neglected in FreeBSD? Somebody on this forum mentioned that rosegarden was supported. They didn't mention that it is one of the oldest versions of that software. So much for that. I feel cheated. Why isn't higher versions of MIDI software available on FreeBSD? Yeah, timidity is also quite an old version in FreeBSD compared to Linux. x( Also I am editing this to ask if anybody on FreeBSD has got software synth working. timidity fails to play any midi file and so does fluidsynth with soundfont loaded.
