VirtualMIDISynth is an audio tool that makes it possible to get more out of the way you use MIDI files on your computer.
It’s a MIDI synthesizer that is used as a Windows multimedia driver and is made accessible as a MIDI output device. The application was designed to be a quality synth that does not require the use of any complex virtual MIDI chains.
Using VirtualMIDISynth is simplified to selecting a MIDI out virtual device, choosing the output from the running media player and then simply clicking the play button. It’s a simple to use solution that helps you solve the issues concerning poor samples, the lack of effects and mono sound.
VirtualMIDISynth enables you to load up to 30 SoundFonts and link them. While it is active, the application allows you to fine-tune the audio quality using a MIDI mixer that is available in the system tray.
The application can be set to automatically run when a track is being played and allows you to activate hardware mixing which is meant to improve the performance of your computer. It’s also possible to tell VirtualMIDISynth to preload the SoundFont files into the memory in order to improve playback smoothness, as well as increase the process priority to realtime.
VirtualMIDISynth also provides a series of shortcut keys that you can use to open the MIDI mixer and select the channel, increase or decrease its volume, as well as mute it. In case you feel that the sound isn’t the way you want it to be in terms of quality, the application enables you to switch off effects such as sustain and reverb while allowing you to set the maximum number of notes to play at a time.
In closing, if you’re looking for a method of improving MIDI output for simple listening or karaoke, then you can try VirtualMIDISynth.
