CoolSoft has updated the VirtualMIDISynth software MIDI synthesizer implemented as a Windows multimedia user driver, accessible as a standard MIDI Out device.
v.1.7.0 – 2013-02-07
NEW: Polish language (thanks to SuperGod)
NEW: Indonesian language (thanks to Latiful)
NEW: Swedish language (thanks to Magnus Johansson)
NEW: Added support for GM/GM2/GS/XG instrument names, now correctly shown on MIDI Mixer
NEW: Added an activity indicator on each MIDI channel, useful to quickly see which channel is actually playing
NEW: MIDI Mixer can now be moved by clicking (and dragging) anywhere on it
NEW: Added support for MIDI running status bit (some players call it “redundant MIDI data”)
FIX: Fixed a small memory leak in Mixer drawing functions
v.1.6.3 – 2013-01-10
NEW: German language (thanks to Markus Stein)
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.
New: Better loking mixer VUMeter bar, it now appears like a LED stripe.
New: Mixer level meter now shows the running average of output level instead of the instant value, making it more realistic and “analogic”.
New: Increased channel name font size and enabled cleartype drawing.
