I write a lot of midi software in java, so I know this feature would be easy to implement with the standard java sound framework (I believe tuxguitar sticks to the standard api but I haven't looked around your code at all):

I would like to be able to choose to use an alternate soundbank. Just a simple thing in preferences to choose to load a different one off the hard drive instead of using the standard default one.
I didn't see anywhere in preferences to do this, and it would be a nice feature to have.

This feature is implemented for the java sound api plugin..
but it's not available on preferences, because not all midi plugins support this feature.
so on preferences you just choose one midi sequencer/port..
Then each plugin have (or no) it's own configuration..

if you have selected any Java Sound Api synthesizer.. so you can configure the default soundbank by going to Tools -> Plugins, and select the java sound api plugin, and click the Configure button..

but if you are running native synths, such as timidity, you can't configure it from tuxguitar.
