Hi Rick,

CM and MIDI stuff in Linux have gone a long way. May I suggest the
following options for using timidity with ALSA:

(setf *midi-player* "timidity -Os")

I have found the following switches good on timidity:

timidity -Os -A130 -p3 -Ei5 -module=2 -q20 -T140 test.midi

-Os        Use Alsa
-A100      Scale amplitude by factor(100)
-p3        3 voice polyphone
-Ei5       Sound (patch) 5
-module=2  Roland 88 behaviour
-q20       Audio Buffer size of 20/100 default 5/100
-T140      Tempo of 140 bps
