That's a problem with the "bassmidi.dll" library that drives the VirtualMIDISynth synth.  This also affects 1.13.0.  An update was just released fixing this problem and should hopfully be used/ported for everyone in the next alpha and release.

CoolSoft VirtualMIDISynth 2.0.0-alpha13 released

Alpha13 has just been released.
Here's a list of new features:

v.2.0.0-alpha13 - 2015-04-29

  • NEW: Gain can now be set for each soundfont, allowing quieter/louder soundfonts to play together.
  • NEW: Virtual devices count is now a user configurable option, from 1 up to 4. Once changed, VirtualMIDISynth must be restarted to enable it.
  • NEW: Dialogs can now be snapped to all active windows.
  • NEW: Upgraded bassmidi.dll to version 2.4.9.8 that brings noticeable improvement in MIDI rendering efficiency with less CPU usage.
  • NEW: Added a new "About" tab to configurator, with some runtime informations.
  • NEW: A warning message is shown if the synth is closed with active clients.
  • FIX: Fixed Options tab controls overlapping.

1. Black window/resize bug has hits again,  it is a regression.

2. More weirdness, you know what I mean. ;-)

3. Volume control doesn't work below 100% :(

I just send VMS13 video report, have fun. :D

So far Alpha13 has been very good at my end.  However, I'd like to mention that while the bassmidi.dlls have been updated in Alpha13, however it hasn't been updated in 1.13.1.

You're both right, fixed it in 1.13.2, sorry.

  1. fixed, it was a regression due to an update of the underlying Win32++ dialog library
  2. really can't reproduce it on my side, will mail you the details
  3. you mean that setting SF gain to a value < 100% doesn't work?
    Could you please elaborate?
    I pass that value to BASS_MIDI_FontSetVolume() function, will investigate.

  1. Great :)
  2. Yeah, this is realy weird... Maybe I have some more ideas how to reproduce that, this realy bothers me.
  3. Yes, SF gain, a value higher than 100% works
