Thanks!

Can CoolSoft MIDIMapper will have "MIDI file coverter" like VirtualMIDIsynth?

Thank for making my MIDI back to life again.

No, MIDIMapper doesn't have any MIDI synthesis feature, and it won't have in the future because it's not its job.

It's better to install both CoolSoft MIDIMapper and CoolSoft VirtualMIDISynth for the same (free) price ;) and let each software do its own job as best.

Re: CoolSoft MIDIMapper beta5 released

Hi again,

Just uninstalled to test, but for some daft reason wmplayer will not play any midi files at all.

"Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file"

Tried resetting the Media Player with

msdt.exe -id WindowsMediaPlayerConfigurationDiagnostic

In applying the fix we have

"Configuration settings might be set incorrectly"

But no remedy applied.

The odd thing is the files will play with other apps e.g. Reaper:

Provided here is a complete reg uninstall file for 64 bit- is it correct?

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]
"midimapper"="midimap.dll"
"midi"="wdmaud.drv"
"midi1"="wdmaud.drv"
"midi2"="wdmaud.drv"
"midi3"="wdmaud.drv"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]
"midi1"="wdmaud.drv"
"midi2"="wdmaud.drv"
"midi3"="wdmaud.drv"
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\MIDIMap]
"szPname"="Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth"
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ActiveMovie\devenum\{4EFE2452-168A-11D1-BC76-00C04FB9453B}\Default MidiOut Device]
"MidiOutId"="FFFFFFFF"
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ActiveMovie\devenum 64-bit\{4EFE2452-168A-11D1-BC76-00C04FB9453B}\Default MidiOut Device]
"MidiOutId"="FFFFFFFF"

Hoping something is wrong with the above, because have no idea what else to try, sorry.

Also after uninstalling, these keys were still active:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ActiveMovie\devenum\{4EFE2452-168A-11D1-BC76-00C04FB9453B}\CoolSoft MIDIMapper
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ActiveMovie\devenum\{4EFE2452-168A-11D1-BC76-00C04FB9453B}\VirtualMIDISynth #1
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ActiveMovie\devenum\{4EFE2452-168A-11D1-BC76-00C04FB9453B}\VirtualMIDISynth #2

Also in uninstalling right click to remove process only gets "copy to clipboard." I think you may have addressed that.

Also, as an adjunct to the above issue, this reg file verifies the keys in VMSynth are consistent with the setup. Is this correct as well?

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]
"midimapper"="VirtualMIDISynth\VirtualMIDISynth.dll"
"midi1"="VirtualMIDISynth\\VirtualMIDISynth.dll"
"midi2"="VirtualMIDISynth\\VirtualMIDISynth.dll"
"midi3"="VirtualMIDISynth\\VirtualMIDISynth.dll"
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]
"midi1"="VirtualMIDISynth\\VirtualMIDISynth.dll"
"midi2"="VirtualMIDISynth\\VirtualMIDISynth.dll"
"midi3"="VirtualMIDISynth\\VirtualMIDISynth.dll"
 
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\MIDIMap]
"szPname"="VirtualMIDISynth #1"
 
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ActiveMovie\devenum\{4EFE2452-168A-11D1-BC76-00C04FB9453B}\Default MidiOut Device]
"MidiOutId"="1"
 
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ActiveMovie\devenum 64-bit\{4EFE2452-168A-11D1-BC76-00C04FB9453B}\Default MidiOut Device]
"MidiOutId"="1"

Thanks for reading. :)

Re: CoolSoft MIDIMapper beta5 released

Regarding the above issue, removed and then added WM_Player. Same issue- but weird things were happening with the progress bar in the addition phase. Closed off the CP form with the progress bar at 50% and re-opened it and WM_Player was suddenly installed.

The "encountered a problem while playing the file" issue was still present unfortunately.

Since then did absolutely nothing with any midi settings- and only hibernated the computer- no restart. And all of a sudden today the midi files play!

Go fig!

So absolutely no problem then.

You may be interested in FalcoSoft SoundFont MIDI Player. Despite the name, it's a great free MIDI player for use with any software or hardware MIDI device.
