If linuxsampler provides the same gui/engine separation as fluidsynth
does it wouldn't be difficult to wrap it up with M.E.S.S or DSSI and
throw it into MusE or RG, together with a bank of good drumsamples and
some preconfigured "drumkits". Not to mention all the other fun things
you would be able to do... I don't know much about linuxsampler though,
does anyone know how it will work with LADSPA-fx, routing and midi? Will
it provide send-fx that could be controlled via midi, for different
channels etc etc or? Hmm, better check the archives...
