Batch/mass MIDI to WAV converter?

    Does anyone know of a good MIDI to digital sound renderer that would
    support mass/batch conversion? I searched for those and found just two
    suggestions - MidiSyn and Wavmaker. I tried MIDISyn, but it produces
    awful files that don't sound anything like the input MIDIs; I wanted to
    see how WAVMaker would performs, but this one refuses to process
    anything except its own sample MIDIs. (I want something that uses
    soundfonts, not its own patches, so Wingroove or Timidity don't
    count...)

    Are there any others to try? Of all the MIDI-WAV converters I tried, I
    liked the results of MIDI2WAV the most, but unfortunately, it doesn't
    have batch conversion...

    AFAIK timidity does supports soundfonts and is particulary suited for the
    job of mass conversion (at least on linux): with a simple script you can
    convert thousands of MIDI into wav. Using soundfonts.

    Roland VSC3 does it better than anything out there. You can still get one
    at www.pgmusic.com if you buy something else you get it for minimal payment.

    TiMidity++ does support using the sf2 of your choice and batch
    conversion using playlists. But as you know it is not very well
    documented. I have devoted a web-site to TiMidity++ to help with this
    problem. Here you can get a simple installation that uses soundfonts,
    links to other high quality free soundfonts, installation help files,
    and a Q&A Forum that I host. Try it, you will like it! If you have
    problems, use the Forum and I will help.

  5. My free tool, SynthFont, can do this as well (only MS Windows version
    available). Go to www.synthfont.com and have a look. But, wait one day
    or two as I am about to release version 0.9 that has support for VST
    effects.

    Cheers
