eawpats is a sound patches library for TiMidity++. This package contains
a patchset for the TiMidity++ MIDI player. A patchset is required for
MIDI files to be audible through TiMidity++. These patches also work
with applications that use SDL_mixer for MIDI audio.
Note that eawpats contains proprietary sound samples. According to the
"Half of the patches in eawpats are derived from original Gravis patches,
and therefore may have some intellectual property issues."
If this is a concern to you, use freepats instead (however, eawpats does
sound nicer). For more information, see /usr/doc/eawpats-12/copyrigh.txt
To use eawpats with TiMidity++ and/or SDL_mixer, edit /etc/timidity.cfg
and make it look like this:
