hi, really great help, it was just as easy as you described, timidity 
starts now with jacklaunch.

the .cfg file looks like this:

# Instrument configuration file for timidity
# $Id: timidity.cfg,v 1.7 2005/09/03 19:26:03 hmh Exp $

# You can change just about every option in TiMidity++ using
# This config file.  Please refer to the timidity.cfg(5) manpage
# for more details

## If you have a slow CPU, uncomment these:
#opt EFresamp=d         #disable resampling
#opt EFvlpf=d           #disable VLPF
#opt EFreverb=d         #disable reverb
#opt EFchorus=d         #disable chorus
#opt EFdelay=d          #disable delay
#opt no-anti-alias      #disable sample anti-aliasing
#opt EWPVSETOZ          #disable all Midi Controls
#opt p32a               #default to 32 voices with auto reduction
#opt s32kHz             #default sample frequency to 32kHz
#opt fast-decay         #fast decay notes

## If you have a moderate CPU, try these:
#opt EFresamp=l
#opt EFreverb=g,42
#opt EFchorus=s
#opt s32kHz
#opt p64a

# Disabling some of the Midi Controls can help with the CPU usage a lot.
# The same goes to the VLPF, sample anti-aliasing and effects such as
# reverb and chorus

# By default, try to use the instrument patches from freepats:

source /etc/timidity/freepats.cfg

i dont know if i should comment out some lines.
have to experiment little more with!

thanks a lot,
