I thought I'd try out Timidity as its in the feed for RC8.
However, playing ANY midi file on my C860, even when overclocked, just stutters or is quite choppy.
I've also tried dropping from X and doing it straight from the command line. Also tried outputting in Mono, 8 bit etc... to no avail.
Is there anything I can do to get this going ok? The only thing I've come up with that may work is to convert my midis to wav using timidity and then play them. I think its the 'on-the-fly' conversion that is causing the problems.
