           Summary: Wine Midi Mapper takes preference over TiMidity,
                    stopping midi playback in some cases
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.35.
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://www.clickteam.com/webftp/files/tgf2/Demo/TGF2Demo
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-multimedia
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: philip.kent at ntlworld.com

If like me you use TiMidity to play MIDI, especially with Wine, no MIDI would be
played back unless the application lets you pick what MIDI Mapper you want to
play back on (such as Noteworthy Composer, I can put the Wine Midi Mapper into
Disabled, and put one of the TiMidity options into Enabled). This is because the
Wine Midi Mapper takes preference over TiMidity.

Users should have option in winecfg to adjust the default playback/recording
device for each category (so it could also work for Wave playback for example).
This could be done with a button called Make Default, which makes the device the
default device for that category.

This way, I can set TiMidity to be the default device for MIDI playback, and
then I can play MIDI from all applications, not just ones that have the option
to set the playback device.

(The URL shows an application that is affected by this bug, if I was to set MIDI
playback in it, it would not play as it goes through the Wine MIDI).
