Hi @kode54
Just want to say thanks for creating & maintaining foo_midi - it has been one of my essential plugins for all of my foobar2000 installs over the years.
I'm not sure if you would be willing to accept any feature suggestions (and if not, that's fine), but if possible it'd be great to have a strictly MT32 mode in Super MUNT GM.
I'm in the minority who grew up with only an MT32 and wasn't aware of the GM Reset utility, and as such all of the MIDI music I have listened to back in the day was in MT32 mode - so that's the sound that I know and love (I'm a weirdo, I know).
I'm using one of the MT32 soundfonts for nostalgia purposes, but it would be amazing to be able to listen to GM midis in MT32 mode through Super MUNT.
Thanks again!

MT-32 mode swaps in automatically for any file with MT-32 SysEx commands in it. It's also possible to right click on a MT-32 reset .syx file and a .MID at the same time and force it to apply that .SYX to the .MID, using a context menu action. This state is stored in a database, and doesn't modify the files.

Thanks, I've figured it out!

For anyone else with the same request:
1. Grab the MT-32 Reset zip file from here: https://www.midimusicadventures.com/queststudios/mt32-resource/utilities/ and unpack the .syx file anywhere you can easily find (preferably in your MIDI folder)
2. Select the midis you want to listen to in strict MT-32 mode and drag them into the foobar2000 playlist
3. Drag reset.syx into the playlist
4. Select everything in the playlist from inside foobar2000, reset.syx included, right-click, choose Utilities -> Assign SysEx dumps
And you're good to go. If you need to clear the sysex assignment, just right-click and choose Utilities -> Clear SysEx dumps.

Hi, I am a MIDI lover.
I am using DeepL translation and it may be incomplete.
I have an SC-88Pro and would like to use Foobar2000.
I have been using a Japanese software "KbMediaPlayer" to play MIDI, but I would like to move on.
However, foo_midi.dll does not have a MIDI output function.
I would strongly like to add the ability to output MIDI externally.
If I am worried about the operation of VU meter or Spectrum, the average user would send the audio output from the sound source to the PC.
Then, wouldn't the VU meter and spectrum work by sending the sound from the microphone (input) for hardware MIDI such as SC-88Pro, or the speaker (output) for VirtualMIDISynth, Timidity, etc., to Foobar2000?
Since there is no problem without visual effects, can't you at least support MIDI output?

Hello, just here to make an interesting suggestion, since i love this foobar plugin.

Is possible to implement miniBAE in foo_midi? miniBAE was a midi synthesizer for embedded tiny devices such as dumbphones in the year 2000s (for example, Nokia phones), years ago the source code was released as BSD license, and fans made a fork which is a modern implementation of this engine, you can take a look: https://github.com/zefie/miniBAE

It works very similar to SF2, for example, instead of SF2, it's .hsb (or .gm in some cases) format soundbanks, the same ones used in dumbphones from that decade. The point of this suggestion is to have a convenient way to reproduce midi files with this engine, and make audio renders of these in WAV/FLAC/MP3.

That's my suggestion, thanks for the plugin :)

Hello,
Cisco Secure Endpoint reports component file as being infected with W32.3C0B1B053C-90SBX.TG. Any option to fix it?
