I had the same issue with tiMidity; it's even mentioned as a bug in the man
page. I was also using it for Rosegarden4, which I now have working very well
using Qsynth (which requires soundfont files installed) for midi and qjackctl
for audio. Also I recommend the realtime-lsm module for better latency.
It should be possible to run these programs as a normal user; are you a member
of the audio group?
