I am using music composing software like NtEd and Denemo. The problem is that when I play the score, I dont hear anything. This is not the case for other programs like Youtube on Firefox, or playing DVDs or listening to MP3s. The problem is only with these music composition softwares. Any suggestions?

You will need to install timidity, which should come with it's own soundfont.

Timidity is already installed. I think the problem is that each staff has its own individual volume control. I heard nothing in all the programs except a VERY faint noise in Denemo, so I poked around and found a volume control. I hear it now but not as loud as I would like. This might be the case with the other programs too.

Denemo seems to be the best one out there so I am just sticking with that. Its too much of a hassle to tweak the other programs and find their controls.
