Build Error: pyfluidsynth 1.2.5 for Python 3.8.2 on Mac

Hey Folks,

I had a build for mingus ( that was working and wanted to add fluidsynth to it.

I tried specifying an alternate version, but that failed.

Also, I note that the error message about invalid version syntax is a bit too sticky. When I removed the invalid syntax and put in valid syntax, I still had the error message (as show in the embedded screenshot.)

  • pyfluidsynth 1.2.5


  • Test failures: pyFluidSynth


  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.8/lib/python3.8/site-packages/", line 40, in <module>
    raise ImportError("Couldn't find the FluidSynth library.")
ImportError: Couldn't find the FluidSynth library.

Hi @zakg,

Thanks for reaching out. In regards to the sticky validation; thats as designed. The text field gets validated onClick of the OK button so you should be ok to continue with the version you’ve entrered.

For pyFluidSynth it looks like we’re missing the FluidSynth binaries in the build machine. I’ll report the issue to the build team and report back when I have more info for you. I added some additional logging information to your ticket that I was able to track down.

Hey @careyh! Any update here?

Morning @zakg,

I’ve reported the issue to the build team. I don’t have an ETA on when the issue will be resolved though.
