Windows version

  • Could anyone explain to me step by step on how to install and get the Windows version of Timidity working properly?  Everytime I load it I get a Timidity.cfg error and on top of that there's no sound coming from any file I try to load.  I tried following instructions through the Setup.txt file but nothing works.

    • 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

      bank 1
      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)

    • You could try to download TiMidity++ from That version has an installer, though I have not tried it.
