I'm the developer of Soundfont Midi Player (including mod2midi converter http://falcosoft.hu/softwares.html).
I have noticed that there are many experienced users on this forum so I ask my questions here.
in GM specification (https://www.midi.org/specifications/ite ... e-messages) there is a sysex message for controlling Master Balance(F0 7F 7F 04 02 xx yy F7).
Midiplayer uses this sysex if you choose the option 'use sysex for Volume/Balance'.
But I have noticed that SC-VA and the synths I have met so far do not support this message.
1. Are there any soft synths/HW devices that actually do support GM Master Balance?
I have experimented with GS Master Pan (F0 41 10 42 12 40 00 06 xx 3A F7) and SC-VA support this sysex.
(But it's GS only and other GS implementations e.g. MS GM/GS softsynth does not support this either).
2. Are there any equivalent Master Balance/Pan sysex message in XG ?
I have tried to find one but no trace of Master Balance in XG specification.
So actually I would like to find an universal way to control Master Balance the same way Master Volume can be controlled.
(It's not problematic if the program has to send more than one kind of message since unknown messages are ignored by synths anyway)
Thanks in advance:
It also has a bug when I start playing a file several times by clicking it rapidly the player does not change instruments but starts playing with all instruments as Piano (after GS reset).
It will skip the patch parameters like Reverb, Pan, Level, etc and start to play...
1. Clicking Play and double-clicking (from a Stopped state) the file should behave the same (they are not in this test build).
These 2 actions are not exactly the same. Double clicking involves midi data (file) reloading, but clicking play (in any positions including start) is not, since the file is already loaded.
