Adds software MIDI and MOD playing to MMOS/2.

TiMidity plays MIDI and Module (.MOD) files. It does it in software without depending on any hardware MIDI support your soundcard might have. Sound quality can be much higher because it limited by your CPU's power and memory rather then your soundcard's power and memory.

TiMidity usally comes as a stand alone player. TiMidity MCD is a special version that installs at part of OS/2 Multimedia system so that most applications that played MIDI files through your soundcard before, now can play MIDIs through TiMidity at a higher quality. This includes the Multimedia Workplace Shell objects and the Plug-in pack for Netscape.

Bug: Be aware that there is if you play a MIDI using the Player menu item of a MIDI file or the MIDI app from the multimedia folder it will cause the Workplace Shell to crash. It you play a MIDI by double clicking it directly it will work. After you've played it once, the other methods of playing MIDI files will then work.
