TiMidity++ is a software synthesizer. It can play MIDI files by converting
them into PCM waveform data or other various audio file formats.
-To add JACK support, install jack-audio-connection-kit and build with:
-JACK=yes ./TiMidity++.SlackBuild
-To add speex support, install speex and build with:
-SPEEX=yes ./TiMidity++.SlackBuild
-To use Xaw3d in Xaw interface, build with:
-XAW3D=yes ./TiMidity++.SlackBuild
TiMidity++ can also be run as an ALSA sequencer client. To do this, make
/etc/rc.d/rc.timidity executable and add this line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local:
-/etc/rc.d/rc.timidity start
+ /etc/rc.d/rc.timidity start
+Optional dependencies are jack-audio-connection-kit, speex, and portaudio.
You will need a set of instrument patch files or soundbank fonts for
-TiMidity++ to be of any use. The freepats and eawpats packages both provide
-a set of patch files, as well as the fluid-soundfont package, so one of those
-will be needed.
+TiMidity++ to be of any use. Install freepats, eawpats, or fluid-soundfont
+(or any combination of these) to satisfy this dependency.
