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
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 http://ocmnet.com/saxguru/Timidity.htm. That version has an installer, though I have not tried it.
