''The ''MS GS Wavetable SW Synth'' is a software based synth that will not allow
you to use the MIDI In capabilities of your Sound Card adequately. Typically,
this synthesizer has a lag of about 100 milliseconds (1/10th of a second)
from the time you start playing a note until the time you hear it. This makes
it not very useful for this type of application.
You would need to use your Sound Card's proprietary MIDI Driver instead of
a 'generic' 'universal' driver. If it is not available because it is not
installed, please consult with your Sound System's documentation to find
out which Driver should be used for MIDI.
If the only driver that works with your soundcard/soundchip is the ''MS GS
Wavetable SW Synth'', then that's really not good. If MIDI is important to you,
you may need to get a different soundcard. But contact your computer or
soundcard manufacturer first and see what they say.''
