It is an extremely busy site so the average load is heavy.  There are
mirrors that are faster though, one of them being fl.linux-speakup.org.

Well, I don't know what it is you are trying to do that is different
from what else has come along but you can find all the documentation
on synthesizers I've been able to accumulate at
ftp://linux-speakup.org/pub/linux/goodies/synths-documentation/.  If
anyone comes accross synth docs I don't have there I'd appreciate them
sending it to me so I can make it available.
