Alright here's the problem.
I want my computer applications to be able to play midi files and have them come out of my audio speaker/monitors again.
I recently got an EMU 1820m
audio interface, but I don't know how to use midi with it very well. It has midi in and out, which is fine if all i want to do is send midi informition between hardware and computer sequencers. What I want is to be able to hear windows media player and other applications easily play midi files like they used to be able to do when i was using the soundblaster card with a built in midi wavetable synth.
Is there anyway to accomplish this again with my current set-up? or am i going to have to revert back to by soundblaster card if i want to hear applications with midi sound in them?
(and i dont want to have to get my computer to output the midi to my crappy yamaha keyboard, which is the only thing i can think of that can translate midi into sound)
