It may be possible to launch LS from KMid, as a third soft-synth option? yes, it is, with some work. But is it worth? That is the important question for me.

The configuration page providing TiMidity and FluidSynth options is only to make easier the program usage for users not knowing too much about MIDI and ALSA sequencer in Linux. I've included both programs, because for some distros it is easier to get one program installed and running than the other one. Free soundfonts can also be distributed by some distros, like FluidR3, GeneralUser or FreePats, making it even easier to integrate everything as a whole, with little trouble for the final users. That is the job of the Linux distros.

Anybody being already a LinuxSampler user will be able to use KMid2 with Qsampler with little or no trouble at all.

One of the problems with LinuxSampler is that it may be much more difficult to integrate, and there is not a freely available GIG library providing the required 128 General MIDI instruments. You can buy such a library, and then you need to integrate the samples with LinuxSampler, which is not a trivial task. As far as I know, there is not a single Linux distro providing this service. On the other hand, you can say that commercial and expensive GIG libraries provide much more quality than free (gratis) sound fonts collections like the ones from hammersound.net, and you may be right. But you could also buy commercial soundfonts in SF2 format for FluidSynth providing high quality sounds.
