There are other softsynths available for linux that aren't listed on this site. Some of them I simply haven't added yet, and some I've chosen to not include because they don't permit patch saving and loading -- a fundamental requirement to modern sound synthesis, in my opinion. After all, having to re-tweak an afternoon of work at every next session isn't very practical. And besides, sharing patches is part of the fun! :)

The Music! page has songs and other works using these synths in a larger context. Some songs and jams are mine, the rest have been generously shared by others.
