Screw MP3 or FLAC, listening to my MIDI files through ADLMIDI or Munt (a Roland MT-32 emulator) is the best.

@Juju I love MIDIs too, although I use the Arachno SoundFont

@dd86k @Juju i only listen to my MIDIs on real yamaha opl3's *crack* *sip*
@Juju @dd86k pick up a YMF719 card, they use an integrated OPL3 core, and should be like under $20 on ebay last i checked

@freon @dd86k Isn't there an OPL3 on the SoundBlaster 16? I think I have one somewhere, but I have no motherboard to plug it on. Other than that, yeah, a board like this that plugs on modern computers should be kinda cheap.

@Juju @dd86k oh yeah, most of them do. i forgo mentioning those as they average $40+ if you didn't already have one

@dd86k Ah yeah, gotta try this out too. Only thing is that there's no free SC-88 emulator other than soundfont dumps, probably.

Those MIDI files from ZUN's website still sound good on a MT-32, though.

@Juju Wait I didn't know ZUN had MIDI files. Link them 'up
