NAME

       TiMidity++ - MIDI-to-WAVE converter and player

SYNOPSIS

       timidity [options] filename [...]

DESCRIPTION

       TiMidity++  is  a  converter that converts some of MIDI files (supported formats: Standard
       MIDI files (*.mid), Recomposer  files  (*.rcp,  *.r36,  *.g18,  *.g36)  and  Module  files
       (*.mod))   into   formatted   audio  files  (e.g.  RIFF  WAVE).   TiMidity++  uses  Gravis
       Ultrasound-compatible patch files or Soundfonts (*.sfx, *.sf2) to generate  digital  audio
       data  from  MIDI files.  The digital audio data generated by TiMidity++ can be stored in a
       file for processing, or played in real time through an audio device.
       In real time playing, TiMidity++ can show the lyrics contained in KAR or WRD files.

FILENAME

       You can use the following expressions as the filename argument:

       -      Read a MIDI file from standard input.

       path/filename
              Read a MIDI file from the specified path on a filesystem.

       dir:directory
       directory/
              Read and play all MIDI files in the specified directory.  For example,

              % timidity some/where/

              plays all files in the directory some/where/.

       Archive File
              Extract and play the file(s) in the archive.  If you want to specify a certain MIDI
              file  in  the archive, append #<MIDI-filename> to the archive name.  The path after
              `#' allows the use of the wildcard expressions (case insensitive).
              You can use escape sequence \xHH, where `HH'  is  a  ASCII  number  in  hexadecimal
              integer.

              For example:

              % timidity file.zip#file.mid
                     Plays file.mid in file.zip

              % timidity file.lzh#*.mid
                     Plays any files that match the wildcard expression *.mid in file.lzh

              % timidity file.tgz#*
                     This expression is the same as file.tgz

              Since  these  mechanism are contained in TiMidity++ itself, you can use this syntax
              even in the MS Windows environment.

              TiMidity++ can handle the following archive formats:

              tar (*.tar)

              tar+gzip (*.tar.gz, *.tgz)

              zip (*.zip)

              lzh (*.lzh, *.lha)
                     (lh0, lh1, lh2, lh3, lh4, lh5, lh6, lz4, lzs and lz5 are available)

              Other archives can be expanded if expander command  is  specified  on  the  compile
              phase.  TiMidity++ will pipe that command.

       news://news-server[:port]/Message-ID
       news://news-server[:port]/newsgroup[/first-last]
              Play  the MIDI file in the specified article on the news server.  If a newsgroup is
              specified TiMidity++ plays all MIDI files found  in  any  article  posted  to  that
              newsgroup.
              TiMidity++  parses  MIME  Multi-part  messages in case of news://* scheme, extracts
              MIDI file that was post to  that  group,  or  in  case  of  normal  file,  you  can
              explicitly  handle  MIME  documents  by  naming that file with *.mime extension, or
              prefix that file with mime:

              The following MIME-types are allowed:

              uu-encoded file
                     begin
                     is required

              base64 encoded
                     Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
                     is required

              quoted-string
                     Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-string
                     is required

              Mac BinHex format
                     only HQX format is available

       http://address
       ftp://address
              Play the file specified in the URL.

              For example:

              % timidity http://www.goice.co.jp/member/mo/dist/midi/impromptu.mid
                     plays the specified MIDI-file directly from the network.

              If these expression are used in the *.cfg files, you can even use patch-files  (and
              others) from remote machines.

INPUT FILE

       TiMidity++ can handle the following file formats:

       .mid, .rmi (Format 0, 1, 2)
              Standard MIDI File

       .rcp, .r36, .g18, .g36 (Recomposer formats)
              Recomposer format which is product for COME ON MUSIC co.

       .mfi (MFi Version 3 - Melody Format for i-Mode)
              i-Mode is Japanese local mobile phone

       .kar (Karaoke format)
              Displays the lyrics as a Lyric Meta Event message.

       .mod, mod.* (Module file)

       .wrd (WRD format)

OPTIONS

       The following command line options are accepted by TiMidity++:

       -A [n][,m](a)
       --amplification=n
       --drumpower=m
       --[no-]volume-compensation
              Multiplies  the  master  volume by n%.  Default value is 70%.  Higher amplification
              makes louder sounds.  You can specify the drum power, ratio of drum volume from the
              other  channels.   The  allowed  values of amplification range from 0 (no sound) to
              800.
              Optionally  to  put   `a'   character   along   with   -a   option,   or   to   use
              --volume-compensation,  instructs  TiMidity++  to  regularize  the volume.  You can
              easily gain dynamic range.

              For example:

              -A90   volume 90%, drum power 100%, compensation is off

              -A,120 volume 70%, drum power 120%, compensation is off

              -A90,120
                     volume 90%, drum power 120%, compensation is off

              -Aa    volume 70%, drum power 100%, compensation is on

              -A90a  volume 90%, drum power 100%, compensation is on

              -A,120a
                     volume 70%, drum power 120%, compensation is on

              -A90,120a
                     volume 90%, drum power 120%, compensation is on

       -a, --[no-]anti-alias
              Turns on anti-aliasing.  Samples are run through a lowpass filter  before  playing,
              which reduces aliasing noise at low resampling frequencies.

       -B n,m, --buffer-fragments=n,m
              For  the  Linux/FreeBSD/OSS/ALSA/Windows sound driver, selects the number of buffer
              fragments in interactive mode.  Increasing  the  number  of  fragments  may  reduce
              choppiness  when  many  processes  are  running.   It  will make TiMidity++ seem to
              respond sluggishly to fast forward, rewind, and volume controls, and it will  throw
              the  status  display  off sync.  Specify a fragments number of 0 to use the maximum
              number of fragments available.

       -C n, --control-ratio=n
              Sets the ratio of sampling and control  frequencies.   This  determines  how  often
              envelopes  are  recalculated  -- small ratios yield better quality but use more CPU
              time.

       -c file, --config-file=file
              Reads an extra configuration file.

       -D n, --drum-channel=n
              Marks channel as a drum channel.  If channel is negative, channel -n is  marked  as
              an instrumental channel.  If n is 0, all channels are marked as instrumental.

       -d dir, --interface-path=dir
              Specifies the directory containing installed dynamic-link interface modules.

       -E mode, --ext=mode
              Set TiMidity++ extend modes.  The following modes are available (capitalized switch
              means disable this feature):

              w/W, --[no-]mod-wheel
                     Enable/disable modulation controlling.

              p/P, --[no-]portamento
                     Enable/disable portamento controlling.

              v/V, --[no-]vibrato
                     Enable/disable NRPM vibration.

              s/S, --[no-]ch-pressure
                     Enable/disable channel pressure controlling.

              e/E, --[no-]mod-envelope
                     Enable/disable modulation envelope controlling.

              t/T, --[no-]trace-text-meta
                     Enable/disable tracing all Text Meta Events.

              o/O, --[no-]overlap-voice
                     Accept/reject pronouncing multiple same notes.

              z/Z, --[no-]temper-control
                     Enable/disable MIDI Tuning Standard temperament controlling.

              mHH, --default-mid=HH
                     Sets the manufacturer ID to HH (where HH are two hex-digits).
                     HH values of GS/gs,  XG/xg  or  GM/gm  are  understood  as  41,  43  and  7e
                     respectively.

              MHH, --system-mid=HH
                     Sets the system manufacturer ID to HH (where HH are two hex-digits).
                     In  this option, the manufacture ID is set unchangeable. Manufacture ID from
                     the input file would be ignored.

              bn, --default-bank=n
                     Use tone bank n as the default.

              Bn, --force-bank=n
                     Sets the bank number of all channels to n.

              in[/m], --default-program=n[/m]
                     Use the program number as the default instrument.  Any Program Change events
                     in MIDI files will override this option.
                     If  n  is  followed  by  /m  the  default program number of the channel m is
                     specified by n.

              In[/m], --force-program=n[/m]
                     Similar to -Ei but this ignores all program changes.

              F args For effects.  See below.  In args option, you can specify  following  effect
                     options:

                     delay=(d|l|r|b)[,msec], --delay=(d|l|r|b)[,msec]
                            Sets delay type.

                            d, 0   Disabled delay effect.

                            l, 1   Left delay.

                            r, 2   Right delay.

                            b, 3   Swap left & right.

                            Optional msec is the delay time.

                     chorus=(d|n|s)[,level], --chorus=(d|n|s)[,level]

                            d, 0   Disable this effect.

                            n, 1   Enable MIDI chorus effect control.

                            s, 2   Surround sound, chorus detuned to a lesser degree (default).

                            The optional parameter level specifies the chorus level 0 to 127.

                     reverb=(d|n|g)[,level], --reverb=(d|n|g)[,level]

                     reverb=(f|G)[,level,scaleroom,offsetroom,predelay]

                     --reverb=(f|G)[,level,scaleroom,offsetroom,predelay]

                            d, 0   Disable MIDI reverb effect control.

                            n, 1   Enable  MIDI  reverb  effect  control.   This  effect  is only
                                   available in stereo.

                            g, 2   Global reverb effect.

                            f, 3   Freeverb MIDI reverb effect control (default).

                            G, 4   Global Freeverb effect.

                            The optional parameter level specifies the reverb level 0 to 127.
                            For Freeverb effect, additional parameters scaleroom, offsetroom  and
                            predelay   can   be  specified.   scaleroom  and  offsetroom  specify
                            variables for the room size calculated as
                            roomsize = C * scaleroom + offsetroom
                            where C is  the  reverberation  character.   predelay  specifies  the
                            factor  for  pre-delay  time of reverberation in percent.  Any of the
                            optional parameters can be omitted.  Default values are 0.28, 0.7 and
                            100 respectively.

                     vlpf=(d|c|m), --voice-lpf=(d|c|m)

                            d, 0   Disable LPF effect.

                            c, 1   Chamberlin resonant LPF (12dB/oct) (default).

                            m, 2   Moog resonant low-pass VCF (24dB/oct)

                     ns=n, --noise-shaping=n
                            Enable  the n th degree noiseshaping filter.  The distortion at decay
                            stage is improved, but the noise on human auditory feeling  increases
                            because  it  shifts  to  a  high  frequency.  In case of 8-bit linear
                            encoding, valid values of n are in the interval from  0  (min)  to  4
                            (max).  Default value is 4.  In case of 16-bit linear encoding, valid
                            values of n are in the interval from 0 to 4.  According to the value,
                            it works as following.  Default value is 4.

                            0      No noise shaping.

                            1      Traditional noise shaping.

                            2      Overdrive-like soft-clipping + new noise shaping.

                            3      Tube-amplifier-like soft-clipping + new noise shaping.

                            4      New noise shaping.

                     resamp=(d|l|c|L|n|g), --resample=(d|l|c|L|n|g)

                            d, 0   No interpolation.

                            l, 1   Linear interpolation.

                            c, 2   Cubic spline interpolation.

                            L, 3   Lagrange method.

                            n, 4   Newton polynomial interpolation.

                            g, 5   Modified Gauss effect (default).

                            This option affects the behavior of -N option.

       -e, --evil
              Make  TiMidity++  evil.  For the Win32 version, this increases the task priority by
              one.  It can give better playback when you switch tasks at the expense  of  slowing
              all other tasks down.

       -F, --[no-]fast-panning
              Turns on fast panning to accommodate MIDI pieces that expect panning adjustments to
              affect notes that are already playing.  Some files that don't expect  this  have  a
              habit  of  flipping  balance rapidly between left and right, which can cause severe
              popping when the -F flag is used.
              In the current version of TiMidity++ this option is a toggle.

       -f, --[no-]fast-decay
              Toggles fast envelopes.  This option makes TiMidity++ faster but the  release  time
              of the notes are shortened.

       -g sec, --spectrogram=sec
              Open  the  Sound-Spectrogram  window.   This  option is activated if the system has
              support for the X Window System.

       -H n, --force-keysig=n
              Specify the number of key signature.  MIDI file is performed with transposition  to
              the  key  of the number of sharp (when n is positive) or flat (when n is negative).
              Valid values of n are in the interval from -7 to 7.  For example, if n is  1,  MIDI
              file  with any tonality will be performed transposing to 1 flat (i.e., F major or D
              minor).  Therefore, it is convenient to use for the accompaniment when practicing a
              musical instrument by the tonality which is easy to perform.

       -h, --help
              Show the help message.

       -i mode, --interface=mode
       --realtime-priority=n
       --sequencer-ports=n
              Selects  the user interfaces from the compiled-in alternatives.  mode must be begun
              with one of the supported interface identifiers.  Run TiMidity++ with the -h option
              to see a list.
              For  ALSA  sequencer  interface,  optionally  to  use  --realtime-priority, set the
              realtime priority by n, and to use --sequencer-ports,  set  the  number  of  opened
              sequencer ports.  Default value is 4.
              The following identifiers may be available:

              -id    dumb interface

              -in    ncurses interface

              -is    S-Lang interface

              -ia    X Athena Widget interface

              -ik    Tcl/Tk interface

              -im    Motif interface

              -iT    vt100 interface

              -ie    Emacs interface
                     (use ``M-x timidity'' in Emacs)

              -ii    skin interface
                     Environment  variable TIMIDITY_SKIN must be set to the path of the skin data

              Interface options
                     Option characters may be added immediately after the  interface  identifier.
                     The following options are recognized:

                     v, --verbose=n
                            Increases verbosity level.  This option is cumulative.

                     q, --quiet=n
                            Decreases verbosity level.  This option is cumulative.

                     t, --[no-]trace
                            Toggles  trace  mode.   In trace mode, TiMidity++ attempts to display
                            its current state in real time.  For the Linux sound driver, this  is
                            accomplished through the use of short DMA buffer fragments, which can
                            be tuned via the -B option.

                     l, --[no-]loop
                            Loop playing (some interfaces ignore this option)

                     r, --[no-]random
                            Randomize file list arguments before playing

                     s, --[no-]sort
                            Sort file list arguments before playing

                     D, --[no-]background
                            Daemonize TiMidity++ in background (for alsaseq only)

       -j, --[no-]realtime-load
              Enable the loading of patch files during play.

       -K n, --adjust-key=n
              Adjusts key (i.e., transposes the song) by n half tones.  Ranges from -24 to 24.

       -k msec, --voice-queue=msec
              Specify audio queue time limit to reduce voices.  If the remaining audio buffer  is
              less  than  msec  milliseconds, TiMidity++ tries to kill some voices.  This feature
              makes it possible to play complicated MIDI files on slow  CPUs.   Setting  msec  to
              zero tells TiMidity++ to never remove any voices.

       -L path, --patch-path=path
              Adds  path  to the library path.  Patch, configuration, and MIDI files are searched
              along this path.  Directories added last will be searched  first.   Note  that  the
              current directory is always searched first before the library path.

       -M name, --pcm-file=name
              TiMidity++  can  play a PCM file instead of a MIDI file.  If ``auto'' is specified,
              TiMidity++ tries to open foo.mid.wav or  foo.mid.aiff  when  playing  foo.mid.   If
              ``none'' is specified, this feature is disabled.  Otherwise just plays name.

       -m msec, --decay-time=msec
              Modify  envelope  volume decay time.  msec is the minimum number of milliseconds to
              sustain a sustained note.

              -m0    Disable sustain ramping, causes constant volume sustains (default).

              -m1    Effectively behaves as if all sustains are ignored, volume  ramping  is  the
                     same as normal stage 3.

              -m3000 A  note  at  full  volume  will  decay  for  3  seconds once it begins to be
                     sustained (assuming the regular stage 3 rate would not  cause  it  to  decay
                     even longer).  Softer notes will of course die sooner.

       -N n, --interpolation=n
              Sets interpolation parameter.  This option depends on the -EFresamp option's value.

              cspline, lagrange
                     Toggles 4-point linear interpolation (default is on).

              newton n  point  interpolation  using  Newton polynomials.  n must be an odd number
                     from 1 to 57.

              gauss  n+1 point modified Gauss interpolation.  Ranges 0  (disable)  to  34  (max),
                     default to 25.

              In either way, linear interpolation is used if audio queue < 99%.

       -O mode, --output-mode=mode
       --flac-verify
       --flac-padding=n
       --flac-complevel=n
       --oggflac
       --speex-quality=n
       --speex-vbr
       --speex-abr=n
       --speex-vad
       --speex-dtx
       --speex-complexity=n
       --speex-nframes=n
              Selects  the  output  mode from the compiled-in alternatives.  mode must begin with
              one of the supported output mode identifiers.  Run TiMidity++ with the -h option to
              see the list.
              Special  in  Ogg FLAC output mode, verifying generated data (will be a bit slower),
              the size of header padding (default is  4096),  the  compression  level  (0  to  8)
              (default  is  5),  and  enabling  OggFLAC stream can be specified by --flac-verify,
              --flac-padding, --flac-complevel and --oggflac options respectively.
              Special in Ogg Speex output mode, the compression quality (0 to 10) (default is 8),
              Enabling  VBR  output, enabling ABR output and setting the ratio to n, enabling VAD
              (voice activity detection), enabling DTX (discontinuous transmission), the encoding
              complexity  (0  to  10) (default is 3), and frames in a single Ogg packet (0 to 10)
              (default is 1) can  be  specified  by  --speex-quality,  --speex-vbr,  --speex-abr,
              --speex-vad,    --speex-dtx,   --speex-complexity   and   --speex-nframes   options
              respectively.
              The following identifiers are available in all versions:

              -Od    Outputs via audio device (default)

              -Os    Output to ALSA

              -Or    Generate raw waveform data.   All  format  options  are  supported.   Common
                     formats include:

                     -OrU   u-Law

                     -Or1sl 16-bit signed linear PCM

                     -Or8ul 8-bit unsigned linear PCM

              -Ou    Generate Sun Audio (au) data

              -Oa    Generate AIFF data

              -Ow    Generate  RIFF  WAVE format output.  If output is directed to a non-seekable
                     file, or if TiMidity++ is interrupted before  closing  the  file,  the  file
                     header  will  contain  0xffffffff  in the RIFF and data block length fields.
                     The popular sound conversion utility sox is  able  to  read  such  malformed
                     files,  so  you  can  pipe data directly to sox for on-the-fly conversion to
                     other formats.

              -Ol    List MIDI events

              Format options
                     Option characters may be added immediately  after  the  mode  identifier  to
                     change the output format.  The following options are recognized:

                     S, --output-stereo
                            Stereo

                     M, --output-mono
                            Monophonic

                     s, --output-signed
                            Signed output

                     u, --output-unsigned
                            Unsigned output

                     1, --output-16bit
                            16-bit sample width

                     2, --output-24bit
                            24-bit sample width

                     8, --output-8bit
                            8-bit sample width

                     l, --output-linear
                            Linear encoding

                     U, --output-ulaw
                            u-Law (8-bit) encoding

                     A, --output-alaw
                            A-Law encoding

                     x, --[no-]output-swab
                            Byte-swapped output

                     Note  that  some  options  have  no  effect on some modes.  For example, you
                     cannot generate a byte-swapped RIFF WAVE file, or force  uLaw  output  on  a
                     Linux PCM device.

       -o file, --output-file=file
              Place output on file, which may be a file, device, or HP-UX audio server, depending
              on the output mode selected with the -O option.  The special  filename  `-'  causes
              output to be placed on stdout.

       -P file, --patch-file=file
              Use patch file for all programs.

       -p [n](a)
       --polyphony=n
       --[no-]polyphony-reduction
              Sets polyphony (maximum number of simultaneous voices) to n.
              Optionally   to   put   `a'   character   along   with   -p   option,   or  to  use
              --polyphony-reduction, instructs TiMidity++ to enable automatic polyphony reduction
              algorithm.

       -Q n[,...](t)
       --mute=n[,...]
       --temper-mute=n[,...]
              Cause  channel  n to be quiet.  n can carry out package specification by `,'.  If n
              is 0, all channels are turned off.   Continuously,  specifying  -n,  channel  n  is
              turned back on.
              On  the  other  hand,  to put `t' character after -Q option or to use --temper-mute
              describes temperament mute.  This mutes channels of specific  temperament  type  n.
              For  preset  temperament,  n can range 0 to 3.  For user-defined temperament, n can
              range 4 to 7.

       -q sec/n, --audio-buffer=sec/n
              Specify audio buffer in seconds.  sec maximum size of buffer, n  percentage  filled
              at  the beginning (default is 5.0/100) (size of 100% equals the whole device buffer
              size).

       -R msec
              Enables Pseudo Reverb Mode.  It sets every instrument's release  to  msec  ms.   If
              msec is 0, msec is set to 800 (default).

       -S n, --cache-size=n
              Sets  the  re-sample  cache  size  to n bytes.  If n equals 0 any sample caches are
              disabled.  The default value of n is 2097152 (2MB).

       -s freq, --sampling-freq=freq
              Sets the resampling frequency (Hz or kHz).  Not all sound devices  are  capable  of
              all  frequencies  --  an  approximate  frequency  may be selected, depending on the
              implementation.

       -T n, --adjust-tempo=n
              Adjust tempo to n%; 120 play MOD files with an NTSC Amiga's timing.

       -t code, --output-charset=code
              Sets output coding of Japanese text.  Possible values of code are:

              auto   determined by the LANG environment variable.

              ascii  Translates non-ASCII code to period.

              nocnv  No conversion.

              1251   Convert from windows-1251 to koi8-r.

              euc    Outputs EUC (Japan) coding.

              jis    Outputs JIS coding.

              sjis   Outputs SJIS coding.

       -U, --[no-]unload-instruments
              Unload all instruments from memory between MIDI  files.   This  can  reduce  memory
              requirements when playing many files in succession.

       -V power, --volume-curve=power
              Set  the  power  of volume curve.  The total amplification becomes volume^power.  0
              (default) uses the regular tables.  Any non-zero value causes all midi to  use  the
              new  user  defined  velocity/volume/expression curve (linear: 1, ideal: ~1.661, GS:
              ~2).

       -v, --version
              Show the version string

       -W mode, --wrd=mode
              Play WRD file.

              Allowed values of mode are:

              x      X Window System mode

              w      Windows console mode

              t      TTY mode

              d      Dumb mode (outputs WRD events directory)

              -      do not trace WRD

              R[opts]
                     Sets WRD options:

                     a1=b1,a2=b2,...
                            Sets the WRD options.  an is the name of option and bn is the value.

                     d=n    Emulates timing (@WAIT, @WMODE) bugs of the  original  MIMPI  player.
                            The emulation levels are:

                            -WRd=0 do not emulate any bugs of MIMPI

                            -WRd=1 only emulate some bugs (default)

                            -WRd=2 emulate all known bugs

                     F=file Use file as WRD file only no file matching *.wrd is found.

                     f=file Uses file as WRD file.

              WRD  mode  must  also  use trace mode (option -i?t) or the timing of the WRD events
              will be terrible.

       -w mode, --rcpcv-dll=mode
              Extended mode for MS Windows.  The following options are available:

              -w r   Use rcpcv.dll to play RCP/R36 files.

              -w R   Do not use rcpcv.dll (default).

       -x str, --config-string=str
              Configure TiMidity++ with str.  The format of str is the same as timidity.cfg.

              For example:
              -x'bank 0\n0 violin.pat'
              Sets the instrument number 0 to violin.
              Character `\' (Ascii 0x5c) in the str is treated as  escape  character  like  in  C
              literals.  For example \n is treated as carriage return.

       -Z file, --freq-table=file
              Cause  the  table  of frequencies to be read from file.  This is useful to define a
              tuning different from 12-equal temperament.  If ``pure'' is  specified,  TiMidity++
              plays in trial pure intonation.

              -Zpure[n(m)], --pure-intonation=[n(m)]
                     Play  in trial pure intonation by Key Signature meta-event in the MIDI file.
                     You can specify the initial keysig by hand, in case the MIDI file  does  not
                     contains  the meta-event.  Optionally, n is the number of key signature.  In
                     case of sharp, n is positive.  In case of flat, n is negative.  Valid values
                     of  n  are  in the interval from -7 to 7.  In case of minor mode, you should
                     put `m' character along with -Zpure option.

       --module=n
              Simulate behavior of specific synthesizer module as  much  as  possible.   For  the
              moment, the value of n defined is as follows:

              0      TiMidity++ Default
