Which .sf2 file are you using?

After unpacking the rar there are 22 files. I have tested`Bass/1276-FReTLeZzz.sf2` `Bass/336-ACBass.sf2` and `Bass/336-Squierbass.sf2` and they work just fine with a quick test.

I turned off Ardour - started another new project and all the sound fonts are working now. I guess that's good news, but I feel stupid. I even loaded up the apps that were started in Linux, and now adding a new midi track with the Fluid Synth works also. I can no longer duplicate the problem. Please close this one out. If it happens again, I'll try to figure out what is different in my setup. Thanks for checking this for me, and sorry for the misreporting.

No problem. I thought perhaps you have loaded the .rar file directly.. but if you can reproduce it again, please let us know. perhaps there's a detail we have missed.
