"decay" gets me:
-m msec, --decay-time=msec
Modify envelope volume decay time. msec is the minimum number
of milliseconds to sustain a sustained note.
-m0 Disable sustain ramping, causes constant volume sustains
-m1 Effectively behaves as if all sustains are ignored, vol‐
ume ramping is the same as normal stage 3.
-m3000 A note at full volume will decay for 3 seconds once it
begins to be sustained (assuming the regular stage 3 rate
would not cause it to decay even longer). Softer notes
will of course die sooner.
Enables Pseudo Reverb Mode. It sets every instrument's release
to msec ms. If msec is 0, msec is set to 800 (default).
Toggles fast envelopes. This option makes TiMidity++ faster but
the release time of the notes are shortened.
F args For effects. See below. In args option, you can specify
following effect options:
Sets delay type.
d, 0 Disabled delay effect.
l, 1 Left delay.
r, 2 Right delay.
b, 3 Swap left & right.
Optional msec is the delay time.
d, 0 Disable this effect.
n, 1 Enable MIDI chorus effect control.
s, 2 Surround sound, chorus detuned to a lesser
The optional parameter level specifies the chorus
level 0 to 127.
d, 0 Disable MIDI reverb effect control.
n, 1 Enable MIDI reverb effect control. This
effect is only available in stereo.
g, 2 Global reverb effect.
f, 3 Freeverb MIDI reverb effect control
G, 4 Global freeverb effect.
The optional parameter level specifies the reverb
level 0 to 127.
d, 0 Disable LPF effect.
c, 1 Chamberlin resonant LPF (12dB/oct)
m, 2 Moog resonant low-pass VCF (24dB/oct)
Enable the n th degree noiseshaping filter. The
distortion at decay stage is improved, but the
noise on human auditory feeling increases because
it shifts to a high frequency. In case of 8-bit
linear encoding, valid values of n are in the
interval from 0 (min) to 4 (max). Default value
is 4. In case of 16-bit linear encoding, valid
values of n are in the interval from 0 to 4.
According to the value, it works as following.
Default value is 4.
0 No noise shaping.
1 Traditional noise shaping.
2 Overdrive-like soft-clipping + new noise
3 Tube-amplifier-like soft-clipping + new
4 New noise shaping.
Enable/disable modulation envelope controlling.
it is quite a big page, so there is probably more there.
