Here in this topic me and James-F are trying to figure out how to build the best all-around midi player that not only useful for soundfont users but anyone.
Especially Roland HW/SC-VA and retro gaming are in the focus nowadays.
Current achievements are better compatibility with SC-55 and SC-VA including the most complete Capital Tone Fallback solution currently available.
Latest version added MT-32 support by integrated Munt VSTi.
Current development version can be downloaded from here (only exe files are included so downloading previous full version is required) :
Official release versions(x86, x64, +special Bassmidi edition) can always be downloaded from
Any suggestions are welcome.
