edit: the demo had issues that were fixed, so I remove the post,
and below is a simplistic
list of steps for layering 2nd, 3rd and more sounds,
hopefully will aid a first-time user someday...

To layer a second sound, at the mixer panel,
activate the second channel by pressing the number 2
atop the channel, at the bottom of that channel strip,
select midi channel 1.

In the Part Settings numeric pad (upper-left)
click 2

In the browser panel, choose a second sound.

Back in the Mixer panel, the second sound's name
should now appear atop the channel strip.

Now you have a multi-timbral layer, both sounds
played on midi channel 1

repeat for 3rd and 4th and more sounds.
Easy, but with great potentials.

edit: these results were in the DEMO,
so I'm deleting them...
....ZAPPPP....

amsynth standalone works
calf instruments standalones work
commercial zyn-fusion standalone virtual keyboard works

commercial zyn fusion standalone from midi keyboard doesn't work.

Same behavior in unrelated distros.
Same result regardless of commandline options

I just can't be THAT unlucky! :wink:

Plugin results:
lv2 version works in qtractor, vst isn't getting scanned,
but I've experienced weird qtractor vst scanning behavior lately)

vst works in bitwig

in mixbus 3.6, the browser lacks content, and the interface
seems mostly frozen against browsing, and the volume
meter is lit up from the onset, with no note-on ever given.

The file import functions needs help, a full function
cursor and a proper file requestor would be nice,
and free choice for bank locations in the /home/.user area
would be a help.

Cheers

Concerning the standalone not outputting audio,
I had to go back to a 2.4 era release to find a working
zynaddsubfx standalone. Other instruments in the
interim, and to this day, worked and work as expected.

Might be worth a peak at code changes back then.
Strange days.

The midi input and audio output driver code was rewritten around the time of 2.4.1, so I'd assume that's what you're running into.
Prior to that the zyn standalone would only be able to use the audio/midi backend that was selected at compile time.
More recent versions let you select the audio/midi driver at runtime.

Defaults can be selected at compile time and they can be overridden with command line flags.
I'm guessing that the defaults aren't what you were expecting.
Distributions can change this, but without any extra configuration it tries to run jack audio output and alsa midi input.
Zyn also ships with different desktop shortcuts to run with pure alsa or pure jack.
These shortcuts run "zynaddsubfx -I alsa -O alsa" and "zynaddsubfx -I jack -O jack" respectively.

This issue has been replicated and fixed in debug builds.
It was a data race when launching the GUI, so reopening the UI is a workaround until the release is uploaded (hopefully 3.0.1 is finalized today).

File selector issues are being documented at:
https://github.com/zynaddsubfx/zyn-fusi ... s/issues/6

Cursor for using editing text/names/etc:
https://github.com/zynaddsubfx/zyn-fusi ... /issues/16

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "File requestor"

Choosing bank locations will be taken care by the setting view which is currently not implemented:
