I have just installed timidity 2.13.2 on WINDOWS/cygwin but when the program runs I get the following message:
timidity: Can't read any configuration file.
I note the same problem has been reported on Mac OS X at http://www.versiontracker.com and and udated installer made available. Has the same been done for cygwin?
You have to type/make your own timidity.cfg and put it in the same directory of the timidity exe. This cfg file contain something like
1 %font fontfile 0 1
1 is the channel number of the midi file (ranging from 1-128)
"font file" is the name of sf2 file or pat file (for pat file d not type the extension) and
0 and 1 is the bank and program number inside the sf2 font (pat file do not need these two number I think)
