I tried on my P166 MMX with Bassmidi:
NT4: does not laod as expected.
does load, set Airfont 340 GS as default soundfont. Playback with default bassmidi setting is stuttering due to CPU power problems. GUI gets unresponsive.
With just the base player window open and record thread stopped it plays less stuttering but GUI interactions result in bluescreen in VWIN32.VXD. Such as pressing "stop".
If I end the player application with space Win98SE recovers to normal operation. Reducing bass settings to 32 voices polyphony and no 32 bit samples may increase performance even more, but as long as GUI interactions after playback start cause the blue screen I stopped further testing.
The blue screen appears only when using bassmidi, with actual hardware midi device the player works.
