KMid2 is a MIDI/Karaoke player for KDE4. It runs in Linux, using the ALSA 

KMid2 plays MIDI and karaoke files to hardware MIDI devices or software 
synthesizers. It supports playlists, MIDI mappers, tempo (speed), volume and 
pitch (transpose) controls and configurable character encoding, font and 
color for lyrics. The graphic views include a rhythm view (visual metronome), 
a channels window with solo/muting controls and instrument selectors, and a 
piano player window (Pianola).

Changes for this release:
* Automatic detection of text encodings for lyrics 
* Get channel labels from SMF metadata (track names)
* Pianola window: added labels showing the channel names
* Check the runtime ALSA driver version for advanced MIDI ports
* Patch from Kevin Kofler adding a "pulseaudio" option for TiMidity++
* Fixed a memory leak
* Fixed command line play lists handling
* Fixed settings dialog: soft-synth audio output combos and apply button
