un soundbanks es un banco de sonidos, que "java" necesita para reproducir sonidos.
apartir de la version 1.5 de la runtime de java de sun, este archivo no esta indluido por defecto, y lamentablemente por su licencia tuxguitar no lo puede incorporar..
es por eso que lo tenes que descargar e instalar manualmente.

Aqui tienes un link para descargar y con instrucciones de instalacion:

I have downloaded all 3 soundbanks found at

then as suggested I moved then to the */lib/audio directory
(mine is /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-

inzupped them and tried them all linkind soundbank.gm to the chosen one.
Well, I alwas get the same error....no available soundbanck?
What can I do, apart changing my laptop or starting learning piano? :)

Maybe, there is another problem before and it causes soundbank not loaded...
can you run tuxguitar under a terminal and paste here the error log ?

Sorry for the bad formatting, but here it is.
It seems there might be problems with permission of audio device maybe? Not sure if it helps, but I can perfectly use for example mplayer and xmms.

well.. that's another known exception.. java seems use OSS as output ( not really sure ) and that cause problems on some PC..

Try follow this instructions:

if they don't work.. try install tuxguitar-alsa plugin, and use a software synthesizer as output. ( like timidity )

Também pasei pelo mesmo problema e encontrei a solução colocando o arquivo "soundbank-deluxe.gm" no seguinte diretório:
C:Arquivos de programasJavajre1.6.0_02libaudiosoundbank-deluxe.gm

English also isn't my native lang.. so it's no easy for me write it well.

>they say 'do this' and then some PC
Well.. the problem, is there are 2 different errors posted on this topic.

there are 2 known problems with tuxguitar sound:
MidiUnavailableException and Unavailable Soundbank

the first, happends when java can't found a "midi system" on your OS.
the second is when there is no a soundbank to play sounds.

but because a tuxguitar bug, "MidiUnavailableException" is not detected. and if it happends you will see "Unavailable Soundbank" error.

So well.. the MidiUnavailableException happends only under GNU/Linux.
are you running tuxguitar under GNU/Linux ???

if yes, try run tuxguitar under a terminal and paste here the error log.

if you are under Windows. the problem is your soundbank as the error say.. so follow that instructions:

Don't be overwhelmed when shopping Christian Louboutin Pumps for women's high heel shoes, you don't have to be psychic to know which heels will be wearable. You must avoid the killer heels that rub in every direction and kill after 10 minutes. When some women buy these killer heels, they get turned off to all heels. There are different discount louboutins heels for different occasions. You can wear some dressier and daring heels with black slacks Christian Louboutin Slingbacks to work, under discount christian louboutin shoes flirty cheap christian louboutin skirts to a party, or even thrown under jeans for a trip to the mall. Always walk around the shoe store with both heels on before making Christian Louboutin Sneakers your decision. The heels that surprise you with their comfort are the heels that will last you in the office or on the dance floor. If you love them, get them
