TiMiDitY MOD Player & Audio for Linux

TiMidity++, originally and still frequently informally called TiMidity, is a software synthesizer that can play MIDI files without a hardware synthesizer.

It can either render to the sound card in real time, or it can save the result to a file, such as a PCM .wav file. TiMidity++ primarily runs under Linux and Unix-like operating systems.

Feature set:

  • Plays MIDI files without any external MIDI instruments at all
  • Understands SMF, RCP/R36/G18/G36, MFI, RMI (MIDI)
  • Autodetects and supports GM/GS/XG MIDI
  • Understands MOD, XM, S3M, IT, 699, AMF, DSM, FAR, GDM, IMF, MED, MTM, STM, STX, ULT, UNI (MOD)
  • Does MOD to MIDI conversion (including playback)
  • Outputs audio into various audio file formats: WAV, au, AIFF, Ogg (Vorbis, FLAC, Speex)
  • Supports NAS, eSound, JACK, ALSA and OSS drivers
  • Uses Gravis Ultrasound compatible patch files and SoundFont2 patch files as the voice data for MIDI instruments
  • Supports playing from archives (zip, lzh, tar…) and playing remote data from the network
  • Timidity++ can be used as an ALSA sequencer device
