What is TuxGuitar-ALSA

TuxGuitar-alsa is a plugin for TuxGuitar. It connects TuxGuitar’s MIDI sound output to ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture). That means that with this plugin TuxGuitar will no longer use Java soundbank, but ALSA MIDI output.

TuxGuitar-alsa is still under development, but it works and can be downloaded from CVS repository.

TiMidity:

Yes, if you connect TiMidity++ to your ALSA, you get software synthetisizer for TuxGuitar which has really good sound quality, similar to GuitarPro’s RSE. Here is a link to TiMidity++ project. There are many patches (soundbanks) for TiMidity in FreePats project.
