Hi! I am an occasional listener of MIDI files and would like to improve how they sound. When I had Windows XP I did know the onboard sound system was using synthesis. Now, with Windows 7 hiding the setting from the Control Panel, I can only guess it is also synthesising because it keeps sounding as bad. I understand instruments can sound more realistic by using a wavetable: a bank with samples of real instruments. Can you point me to any free implementation? Any quality improvement will suffice. I am not asking for a dedicated MIDI player or a MIDI to WAV converter, just something that transparently directs MIDI commands to a soft table instead of a FM synthesizer. So, this will work with any application that generates MIDI commands. Thank you!
