I'm a music crazy man, and I create a lot of musics using my Keyboard, and save them on diskettes to play on PCs. The problem is that, it sounds quite bad under Windows, but it's almost OK under my Linux box (Fedora Core 2) using timidity, which support sf2.
I've heard of Cakewalk and Cubase products, that are able to take care of those sf2 sound fonts, but they are a way too big for just playing MIDI files on a PC. I mean, they are supposed to be in Professionnal domains, where studios create their own musics; but what I want is, a smooth, fast, light MIDI player, with an excellent sf2 supports.
Curiosity: is there a timidity under Windows ?
