I did this (except I installed the 4MB version straight away - unsure why I'd need both) but even though I can select Yamaha SoftSynth in MidiMapper, I don't hear any sound from it when I play midis Any idea what could be wrong? (I can hear things if I change it back to Windows Midi.)Timar wrote:I don't know if this is already known here, but there is yet another (very simple) way to obtain a decent MIDI sound on Windows XP (it just works on XP though).
Microsoft is giving away the faboulous Yamaha Softsnyth S-YXG50 with a 4MB wavetable for free (yes, indeed, Microsoft!).
All you need, the download link and a setup guide you'll find here on Wikipedia:

Make sure you download the version with the 4MB wavetable, and to change the registry key for the sampling frequency from default 22.050 to 44.100khz.
Now you can select the Yamaha Synth as MIDI device and enjoy the sound of your favourite ScummVM games
I'm running Vista. I changed the Registry settings as advised (oddly they were set for the 2MB version?). I even copied the 2MB version into System32 to see if that would help
