All I need to do in F8 is to run "timidity file.mid" and it plays via
pulseaudio. As a test I can run Audacious in parallel and let it play
via its pulseaudio output plugin, too. I haven't set up anything for

timidity outputs to the normal PCM device, because it is a software
wavetable player.

Ok, running Timidity works perfectly for me.  But when I tried to run
this midi file with Audiacious, what is odd is that it does not allow me
to run the file with it's default configuration.  Granted, I tried to configure
the Midi Add-in I:

1) Added the Soundfonts (PCLite)
2) Enabled 14:0 Midi Through:  Midi Through Midi Port-0
3) The default 'ADmidi' backend is ALSA backend 0.8b1, and
    did not work so I selected: FluidSynth Backend 0.8b1
4) Applied the changes

Then clicked the Right-Arrow (Play) button and it sounded like
only treble was playing - tinny sound.  Missing was the base
clef.  So how do I make sure that the configuration is properly
setup here?
