I use ubuntustudio-audio, which works nicly on my lenovo 3000 N1000 laptop.
I have a strange problem with a rosegarden (1.5.1) exported midi-file.
I have a choral midi file with 4 voices, and I changed the instruments
to markup up the voices (for sporan, alt, tenor, bass)
That was no problem, and I exported a midi file and with Kmid it semms
to sound correctly (flute and piano).
But when I listen it with timidity, I only hear the voice which I have
marked up - flute - (and a convertion in .wav does the same, I like to
burn a Audio-CD). .
If I reimport the midi-file to rosegarden, the file seems to be o.k.
all tracks visible and audible.
IMHO timidity works correctly and rosegarden certainly does also.
(I didn't find something special when exporting, nor hints in the
internet and I was just looking at the rg FAQ's)
Where can be my problem?
many thanks for the hints in advance

It could be our exported MIDI file is slightly weird in some way TiMidity
doesn't like. That's just a guess. If KMid is playing it correctly, it
can't be *that* weird.
I have no idea how any of the MIDI import/export stuff really works, so I have
to address a problem like this as just another user. My approach would be to
assume that there's something funky with TiMidity here, and try something
else, such as QSynth.
Or since your only real problem is playing the exported file with TiMidity as
a stand-alone player (I assume it plays correctly through TiMidity when you
play it live inside Rosegarden) then you could just record the audio while
it's playing, instead of using TiMidity as a .mid to .wav converter on a
static file. That's what you'd have to do with QSynth or really anything
else anyway, and it should be perfectly feasible, unless perhaps you have
very low spec hardware.
I probably won't find anything, but if you can send the file that's giving you
trouble, I can play with it and see if I do.
