    Hello,

    In the past that is 8 or 10 years ago I could listen to a midi music file with timidity. I just did a search for 'timidity morphos' but could not find this program. I specify that I have already installed timidity as well as geronto player. But I do not use aminetradio anymore.

    Hi,
    You can use wildmidi (shell program)

    Thanks. This works better than ANR which freezes quite often when playing midi. I renamed wildmidi-static to just wildmidi and added the mime type as seen in the photo below.

    Just double click on a midi to play in a shell. Use ctrl+c to stop it.

    Cheers

    If I may help, as a new MorphOS user, I was in the exact same situation :)

    Use DaPlayer (WildMidi, unfortunaely, gives horrible sounds).

    With DaPlayer, you just have to download GUS patches, put them wherever you want and modify timidity.cfg (in DaPlayer's drawer) to point to where your patches are. And voilĂ  ! You can hear MiDi files with excellent rendering.

    And BTW, DaPlayer can also read lots of MOD music formats (and OGG / MP3 of course).

    For me, this is the utimate audio player for MorphOS.

    (I do use ANR only for web radios.)

    Nice, thanks!

    Is it illegal to download the proper GUS patches, or where can one find them?

    I see there are many free versions too, I suppose it doesn't matter.

    It is no illegal to download them, there are many different sets.

    You can download those I am using here : https://www.amiga-ng.org/resources/Logiciels/Timi.zip

    Have fun !

    I test wildmidi, you can change settings and use timidity instead of the default configuration :


    wildmidi -c timidity.cfg file.mid

    if you have install SDL2 pack you can use :
    wildmidi -c LIBS:timidity/timidity.cfg file.mid

    and put -m 127 to put volume max.

    If you want put wildmidi working with typemine :


    Code:

    AMTD
    1
    Type audio/midi
    Name MIDI Sequence Audio
    Action
    Name WildMidi
    Event DoubleClick
    Command AMIGADOS wildmidi -m 127 -c libs:timidity/timidity.cfg %sp
    Flag cd source
    End
    End
