    I really like Roland VCS and it's not really expensive!

    no idea, didn't realise there was much of a difference from player to player as they would all use the same soundbank? but i'm probably wayyy wrong

    Midi players can usually play many types of audio files. There are many out there mostly freeware.

    software or hardware player? for software, roland Vsc is the best... for hardware, there are also Roland MIDI Players which has a built-in floppy drive for you to play MIDIs on disks!

    Man there are some trash posts here. babysham i cant think of a player that just does midi only. I would reccomend you have a look at vanbasco's player. http://www.vanBasco.com

    I use Winamp 2.91 with the 2.x MIDI plugin, because it is capable of dynamically loading individual parts of a SoundFont. This is especially important if you have limited memory. I have 149MB max SoundFont cache, but Crisis GM v1.8 (250MB) plays perfectly with Winamp's MIDI capabilities. You can also send Sysex commands live while the MIDI is playing!

    I use WinJammer 32 for all my midi needs. It's not the best, that's for sure, but it's all I really need. It plays midi files fine.

    I used to use Winamp but I always get error messages and crashes.
