Hey everyone,

Im using foobar2k for quite a while now and I don't want to use
another player anymore, but there's a little problem.

I've downloaded the midi plugin for foobar and put it into the plugin folder, and it works.
But the quality is not really good. If i listen to the same midi in wmp it sounds as it should do.

I'm using midi files for the rpg maker and when i listen to the midis there, they sound like in wmp, so i guess
somethings not right with the plugin for f2k.

Is it just bad or do exists other midi plugins?

There is no "should sound" to this whole format, unless the composer used a specific synthesizer when producing the file, and expected everyone who would listen would have the same exact synthesizer.

foobar2000 cannot use the system synthesizer because it does not support on-demand rendering, only real time playback.

If you really want it to sound like that horrible gm.dls bank, you may dig up Audio Compositor or similar and convert the bank to SF2 format.

I happen to flip around between a mix of Colossus.SF2 (not strictly legit) with SGM and AnotherXG, and the two Yamaha VST instruments, S-YXG50 and S-YXG2006LE.
