    I have recently downloaded timidity and have several SF2 files but cannot figure out how to fix the timidity.cfg file so i can actually convert midi files to better-sounding mp3's. Does anyone have any ideas of how to make timidity work?

      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 
      where 

      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)
