OK, I found the package here:

I installed the .deb, but I'm not sure  what it actually does. I have to
learn more about how sounfonts work.  Does the .deb  create a .sf2 file I
can load into Fluidsynth/Qsynth?
I've tried opening Qsynth and the FluidSynth DSSI plugin, but I can't find a
soundfont to load.

Over the past few days, I've experimented with what you talked about in your
original response.  I found I could record my voice to an audio track and
play it back.  Also, I could assign MIDI tracks to Hexter, Trivial Synth,
and Less Trivial Synth, and get some sound.  So, I guess it's some problem
with TiMidity.  Weird how it worked before, then just stopped working.  XMMS
can still play MIDI files with TiMidity.

I'm glad you're still willing to entertain these kinds of questions despite
being annoyed when they come up repeatedly.  Next time I'll spend more time
with the documentation before asking.
