    Timidity works but no sound from Noteedit - Hardy

    I have a "tailor-made" minimal Hardy install with Noteedit and Timidity. While Timidity happily plays any midi file, I cannot get any sound when I try to play a score using Noteedit. I have tried all combinations of sequencers and port options under the Noteedit sound menu but no luck. Searches of the forums and Google have not revealed anything useful. My sound card is not capable of hardware midi synthesis but it played scores fine using Noteedit under Gutsy.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated. For reference, here is a list of installed modules. Cheers, Pat.

    Yes Loell, it is. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I suspect there is something I have not yet installed on my minimal install, but I cannot think what it might be. I still have the 7.10 version on a dual-boot too, so I can compare the installed programs in each version but cannot see any differences of significance.

    Cheers, Pat.

    i'm not sure if this even relates,in standard install PulseAdiou is installed. though i really can't see how this would affect a minimal install.

    Thanks again Loell. Tried pulseaudio but still no sound from Timidity.

    Re: Timidity works but no sound from Noteedit - Hardy

    Hello all,

    in case you still need help, I was able to make it work on my Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex.

    1. Launch Timidity++ as server with this command from Terminal:

    timidity -iA -B2,8 -Os -EFreverb=0 2>&1 &

    2. Open NoteEdit, go to Setting -> Configure -> Sound and select "Timidity port 0 128:0", "Apply" then "OK"

    Now pressing the play button it should work.

    Found this here:

    Rock On!!!
