Run latest timidity (not the one from kmidi, I mean, the real timidity++) 
with -iA (if I'm not wrong, I'm saying it by memory) and then configure 
kmid to use it, et voilá! you have kmid with software synthesizer.
Don't forget to use good patches like the ones from eawpatches.

I have real HW and it runs with it and with the soft synth the last time I 
tried. I should say that I'm not very good maintainer because I'm really 
busy lately (and even more in June :-( ), so I'm afraid I won't have time 
to look at it until beginning of July (but definitely before KDE 3.2)
