I have two sound cards in my machine:

cat /proc/asound/cards

0 [ICH5           ]: ICH4 - Intel ICH5
                     Intel ICH5 with AD1980 at 0xfebffa00, irq 185
1 [Quattro        ]: USB-Audio - USB Audio Quattro
                     M Audio USB Audio Quattro at usb-0000:00:1d.2-2, 
full speed

I start timidity:

timidity -iA --sequencer-ports=2 -B2,8 -Os -EFreverb=0
Requested buffer size 2048, fragment size 1024
ALSA pcm 'default' set buffer size 2048, period size 1024 bytes
TiMidity starting in ALSA server mode
Opening sequencer port: 128:0 128:1

Timidity works just fine with audio output on card0. How do I get 
timidity to use card1 for audio output?
