The audio/timidity port
timidity-2.15.0p1 – MIDI to WAV renderer and player
TiMidity is a MIDI to WAVE converter using Gravis Ultrasound-compatible
patch files or soundfonts to generate digital audio data from General
MIDI (GM) files. The data can be stored in a file for processing, or
played in real time through an audio device.
TiMidity has several different interfaces which can be chosen by appending
a character to the "-i" interface command line switch.
The defaults are:
-in ncurses interface
-iT vt100 interface
-id dumb interface
-ir remote interface
Some of the interfaces support "play tracing" which shows you the notes
being played in realtime. This can be enabled by appending a 't' to the
respective interface switch, e.g. to enable play tracing on the ncurses
interface use 'timidity -int <filename>'.
gtk2 - Build gtk+2 interface which may be used via 'timidity -ig'
(does not support play tracing)
xaw - Build Xaw interface which may be used via 'timidity -ia'
(support play tracing)
