Hi there,
What Jerome said is not correct :
The Allegro softsynth can use his own softsynth if you use the "DIGMID"
driver (look at the "setup" programm, and in the documentation of the DIGMID
driver on the Allegro website, and be carefull to download the correct
version of Allegro for BeOS at bebits).

The softsynth is even able to read GUS and sf2 banks (but you need to use an
utility to convert the sf2 banks in order to use them), wich was not the
case of the R5 softsynth (if i remember correctly).
Using this DIGMID softsynth is not recommended though, as it has poor
performances (that's why the default setting is to use the Beos softsynth).
But it could be possible to optimize it.
