Testing the sound in general is quite obvious - but what about midi? I was trying games at first but its not that straight forward and I don't have many games with good midi - and its hard to get them nowadays - also not very optimal to buy them just to test sound 😉 I even found a demo of Secret of Monkey Island (as it seems to be the benchmark for midi in many reviews + I love this theme) - just wonder if it features the sound from full version.
Anyway - testing with games does not seem the best way to do it - better would be to do it with some kind of midi player and some tracks. I'm not experienced in this area - my worries are - is there midi player that actually utilises midi on sound card instead of software conversion from midi (so not testing sound card midi at all). Also is there a library to get nice samples of midi tracks to test on?
