I have the above card and may upgrade to a SB Live card (not the Value edition) in the hopes of better sounds.
On my present card I play various MIDI files, most sound fair as you know. I have played them under my browser (Netscape) as well as independently outside of the browser.
People talk about a GS setting which I found on the Synth tab of the AWE64 Panel. I tried this setting and found little difference of the standard GM Midi mode.
Am I doing something wrong or using it for the wrong purpose?
Now some people also talk about how a MIDI file is optimized for the Roland XG setting or something like that and requires a load of a soundbank. WOnder if this would even make a difference in playing a MIDI file I find on the Internet.
Thanks for a reply.
