if you would like to have windows media player play midi files through a registered midi device other than the MS GS Software Wavetable Synth

follow the instructions here (fixed link)

since this involves a registry edit the usual caveats apply backup your registry or at least the keys to be changed before proceeding

It is suppose to work on Vista and Win 7.

64 bit Win 10 Pro - the latest BiaB and RB - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

Tried your link again today....worked perfect...weird. Thanks this is a great tip. Now I can use my Yammy and Roland GM rack sets rather than the MS defaults.
