This is now fixed in CVS. You might have to delete the lines concerning
timidity from your ~/.ecasoundrc ... (ecasound will insert new defaults
the next time you run it). Ecasound passes the sample rate (selected by -f
in ecasound) to timidity with its -s parameter.

Well, I rewrote the old fork code in ecasound, and as a result, adding
support for external programs is now quite easy. The current CVS tree
already has Ogg Vorbis support; both input and output (using ogg123 and
vorbize). All command line arguments are stored into ~/.ecasoundrc, so you
don't necessarily have to use the default apps.

I guess I could make this even more generic (possibility to add new
formats without modifying ecasound), but at the moment, I don't think it
would be worth the effort. Forking is a nice technique, when you need to
quickly add support for new formats, but it's always limited when compared
to native/plugin-based support.
