I'm trying to get my laptop set up for gigging so got a little USB
audio device. It seems to be fine with PulseAudio and sounds much
better than the built-in audio on the laptop.
I can set set pulseaudio to use the USB and problems like aplay and
rhythmbox use it. No problem.
But, timidity (from a command line) just continues to play though the
I can bypass with a command:
timidity file.mid -Ow -o - | aplay
and this works okay. It might be a good solution since aplay always
seems to select the "correct" port. Only problem is that I do get a
message (I think from timidity) "Illegal Seek: Can't make valid
header". Probably save to ignore.
I'm looking for a selector in timidity to pick the audio port?
Oh ... just figured it out. If I use -Oa it works just fine since this
sends it to the alsa port.
I'll post the message anyway just in case I forget or someone else is stuck.
