Someone on another list proclaimed without rational reason or
explanation ( I have not received his official permission to quote
his post but would welcome a reply):
"more ore less absurde quality judgments are
exhibited in public." ..."...
It is still impossible to compare the Grand-Orgue sound engine
with, e. g.,
jOrgan Fluidynth sound extension, whilest the hobbyists are
"better" and "bader" of dispositions.
I suggest to compare the Grand-Orgue sound result with the result
state-of-the-art Hauptwerk dispositions, to avoid any errors of
regarding the sound quality of Grand-Orgue dispositions."
As I consider myself a hobbyist, my opinions have apparently been
judged "absurd" and "errors of judgement" and I took
this somewhat personally. Yet I find nothing in this posters
comments to support his claim that various audio sound engines
cannot be compared. It only seems logical to do so, and we all know
that it can be done because we all do it.
I would welcome enlightenment on the reason that FluidSynth sound
generation should not be compared with those used in GrandOrgue or
Hauptwerk. The latter appear much higher quality to my ear. I
cannot think of a logical reason why open source audio reproduction
should be any lower quality than closed source, yet my ears do not
lie to me.
