By default noteedit plays on MIDI hardware.
If none is attached to your computer, you won't hear anything,
but you can see it: the note just playing is marked red.
To hear the output without MIDI hardware,
install timidity and then in noteedit, go to
Settings - Configure Noteedit - Sound.
Choose Timidity port 0 as MIDI device.

I had the same problem. Thanks for your answer. Noteedit seems to play something (each note becomes red), but I still don't hear anything. How could I check 1) that timidity works correctly, 2) that Noteedit effectively sends its output to timidity?

I d'ont speak english bat " He tenido el mismo problema y para poner los puertos de timidity hay que mirar en el acchivo que está en root/ etc/ default/ tymiditi y editarlo y modificar una linia que lleva un rem y por lo tanto no se ejecuta la llamada al ALSA . queitar el rem y guardar
 aactivar los puertos y luego reiniciar y ya funciona el sonido.
Yo tengo una pregunta. ¿ Como se indican en la partitura los "matices".

Translation of what mibana said, for those of you who don't speak Spanish:

I've had the same problem and to set Timidity's ports you have to check the file that's in /root/etc/default/timidity and edit a line that's commented out with REM (which is why it doesn't call ALSA). Remove the "REM" and save it. Activate the ports and restart, and now the sound works.

I tried Paul Volker's suggestion. It didn't help with the sound.

I looked for the file that mibana (Diego Argueta) referred to and didn't find any line referring to ALSA that was REMed.

I did find the following lines:

       # Enable MIDI sequencer (ALSA), default is enabled
       # Disable it if you have real MIDI hardware

       # Setting overrides (of /etc/timidity.conf) for the ALSA sequencer daemon

Does something need to be changed there?

Yani Raafezaj (ytraaf) said : #6

Here's what I did to get it working:
1) Reinstall every ALSA module using Synaptic
2) Get timidity
3) Before running NoteEdit, TuxGuitar, etc., run this:

timidity -iA -Os&

and leave it open. The MIDI programs now work. When you're done, kill it with CTRL-C.

Mibana: Creo que no se puede indicarlos en NoteEdit. Ahora uso MuseScore; le da muchísimo más control, y se puede instalar "sound fonts", con que se puede tocar la música pero con grabaciones de instrumentos actuales, no sintesisados.

Can you help with this problem?
