CoolSoft VirtualMIDISynth

CoolSoft has released version 1.9.0 of VirtualMIDISynth, a software MIDI synthesizer implemented as a Windows multimedia user driver, accessible as a standard MIDI Out device.

Version 1.9.0 adds a long waited (and popular) feature: *reverb and chorus* settings.
These settings are not “live”, they must be set through *Configurator -> Options* tab, so a VirtualMIDISynt restart is needed. (I suppose this is the best implementation because (usually) these settings are sent through SYSEX messages at the beginning of a song, not during play).

Changes in VirtualMIDISynth v1.9.0

  • NEW: Configurator settings for Reverb & Chorus effects level.
  • NEW: Configurator setting to override Reverb & Chorus SYSEXes received from MIDI (and force our custom levels).
  • NEW: Updated BASS to version 2.4.10 and BASSMIDI to 2.4.8
  • NEW: Added Magyar language support (thanks to Nádasdi Zsolt)
  • NEW: New setup commandline option “/skip_os_check” to let it run on misdetected systems.

VirtualMIDISynth is a free download for Windows.

Coolsoft has updated its VirtualMIDISynth software to version 1.4.0, adding support for 64-bit MIDI client applications.

VirtualMIDISynth is a software MIDI synthesizer implemented as a Windows multimedia user driver, accessible as a standard MIDI Out device.

It works on Windows XP / Vista / 7 (both x86 and x64), and is based on the great BASS library from un4seen.

Changes in VirtualMIDISynth v1.4.0

  • Drive
    • New: Added support for 64bit MIDI client applications (on 64bit OS).
    • New: Better compatibility with BASS based MIDI clients, like Karafun and Synthesia.
    • New: Default systray context menu item is now mixer which can be opened by double clicking icon.
    • Fix: Increased sound buffer efficiency and better threads management.
  • Configurator
    • New: Rewritten configurator with a new tabbed interface; now it could contain the new options in a more clean GUI.
    • New: Lot of new settings added:
      • “advanced” settings to reduce CPU requirements disabling some features (like effects, polyphony, …).
      • output audio device selection.
      • automatically open MIDI Mixer while playing.
      • raise MIDI player process priority to “High priority”.
      • enabling audio hardware mixing.
      • audio output buffer size (default 250ms).
    • New: Option to preload the whole soundfont file into memory before play (enabled by default). It increases the required memory and adds a small delay at start, but also gives a smoothest play because samples are already available in memory.
    • New: Horizontal scrollbar into soundfont list to allow reading long filenames.
  • Mixer
    • New: Better loking mixer VUMeter bar, it now appears like a LED stripe.
