    If you have a proper MIDI device, e.g. Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth, selected in your multimedia audio properties box, Windows Media player should play MIDI files well.

    I use a variety of different programs to play an view MIDIs. First there is the good old MIDISOFT STUDIO 4, which is very old fashioned, but quite good. Then FINALE for arranging and printing MIDIs, and last not least CUBASE to produce MIDIfiles to real Songs.

    My Sequencing is based upon VST-Instruments and sf2-Soundfonts, which have an very realistic sound.

    I use Winamp to check them out and Cubase SX2 to mess around with them or create them, then I use my Korg Trinity to play them as backing tracks for the band. The Trinity has a very powerful editor but I prefer the bigger screen of my PC.....
