timidity++ with PulseAudio output just works for me.
I am going to give that a try, as I would like to see if I can find something
acceptable with pulseaudio (haven't tried fluidsynth with pulse, only alsa, but
that was definitely very good).
I should note that I am using the default, ie., FluidR3_GM.sf2, sound font.

Duh? Maybe Kevin understands what that means.
If you go the timidity way, timidity.cfg should work out of the box.
Well, it didn't. Tell me what arguments I am supposed to start it with and I
try running it from the command line before I call kmidi2. When I let kmidi2 start
it, I got horrible sound (alsa default, didn't try pulseaudio), kind of like it was
coming from deep under the ocean.
Timidity uses the "patches" format of the same default
"Patches" means lower quality and less instruments.
Yes, I noticed that patches are huge, so I didn't download any. The default
timidity.cfg calls for share/soundfonts/default.sf2, which is a symlink to
FluidR3_GM.sf2. I think this is a sound font, not a patch file.
