Bassmidi won't work with anything after Win 7 as far as I know because midi mapper has been removed. I linked to VirtualMidiSynth a couple years ago a few pages back. That will work and still does. I just decided to maybe play a little bit and it works. I'm using a different soundfont though than most others as well. You have to disable "Increase Process Priority to REALTIME" in virtualmidisynth options or it won't work from my experience.
Soundfont I use: FluidR3_GM.sfArk
Needed to decompress that font: sfark
Thank you. This worked for me.

Installing all of this gave me music on Windows 7 for the first time! Thanks!

now that its 2018, whats the best setup people have found for modern versions of windows?

I'm on windows 10. I've installed VirtualMIDISynth, and i've configured my soundfonts chain with synthuser.sf2 first (from EQ install directory), and then the 1mgm.sf2 second (as recommended here, archived here).

the FluidR3_GM.sfArk was OK, but its not like i remember the classic music.

I have to second pdub above. After being on P99 for two years or so, I turned on the music and wandered around. At first I thought the game was glitching because it sounded SO OFF. I think it's the oboe on the Freeport Docks music is out of tune! I didn't realize it could be a MIDI problem.

If you're talking about the occasional audio track in a midi getting completely off-key, I've run into that many times. The music seems to be pretty fragile no matter what midi file you're using and the only fix I've found is to close out completely and re-open.
This man is shocked by your reply.

I followed the original instructions (I'm on Windows 10,) and it didn't change anything. So, I uninstalled bassmidi and deleted the .sf2 file. Now, I have sounds but all the music is gone. Anyone know how to get it back? I don't care about the new music at this point just want to get some music working again.

*Edit* Never mind, I installed VirtualMidiSynth and it seems to be working now.

Is anyone having trouble with the newest version of virtual MIDI synth? Ever since I upgraded to latest version I only see Windows GS wavetable under MIDI devices and I can't pick virtualmidisynth#1 anymore.
