At first, because of recent discussion on the list about using all Linux
software and no external hardware (where do you draw the line? Should a
musician give up his guitar or MIDI keyboard or sax?) I was going to do
this entirely within Linux except for the MIDI data stream (no audio)
from my Yamaha P90 digital piano into the computer.

I found two patches in ZynAddSubFX that sounded great layered, the "Soft
Arpeggio3" and the "Ice Rhodes2," but every time I recorded the piece
routing the audio output of ZynAddSubFX through Jack to Rezound, I would
receive just one or two brief overruns. These became frustrating, so I
instead reluctantly resorted to using one of the sounds from one of my
external MIDI tone generators, the SRX-02 "Concert Piano" expansion
boand in my Roland FantomXR, routing the audio into the computer via an
M-Audio Delta 1010 sound card.

However, I must say that I was very impressed with the sounds that
ZynAddSubFX produces and I hope to do more study and resolve Jack's
overrun issue because I would very much like to record using "soft
synths" such as ZynAddSubFX.
