Sure it does, several.
-i mode, --interface=mode
Selects the user interfaces from the compiled-in alternatives.
mode must be begun with one of the supported interface identi-
fiers. Run TiMidity++ with the -h option to see a list.
For ALSA sequencer interface, optionally to use --realtime-pri-
ority, set the realtime priority by n, and to use
--sequencer-ports, set the number of opened sequencer ports.
Default value is 4.
The following identifiers may be available:
-id dumb interface
-in ncurses interface
-is S-Lang interface
-ia X Athena Widget interface
-ik Tcl/Tk interface
-im Motif interface
-iT vt100 interface
-ie Emacs interface
(use ``M-x timidity'' in Emacs)
-ii skin interface
Environment variable TIMIDITY_SKIN must be set to the
path of the skin data (compressed data are also sup-
-ig GTK+ interface
-ir Launch TiMidity++ as MIDI server.
-iA Launch TiMidity++ as ALSA sequencer client.
-iW Windodws synthesizer interface
-iw Windodws GUI interface
-iP PortMIDI synthesizer interface
-ip UMP interface
I tend to use the -ig interface.

I like the concept, bear in mind that Ipx wide lines in a 64x64 icon will
disappear when it gets reduced to smaller sizes (as it inevitably does. I
like the concept, but I would remove all the lettering and notes and perhaps
just have a waveform in the specimen jar.
