Microsoft GS Wavetable synth GS fallback mechanism bug - again ??? - WIN 7 x64 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Whenever I try a new MS OS, I have to face with this bug...
    Two years ago with vista, now with win7 x64...

    "According to GS specification if a Bank select and Program Change combination refers to a missing instrument, the device should react as if it is getting a Bank 0 and the given Program . Insted of this MS GS synth remains silent in this case. (You hear nothing.)

    Moreover it reacts to XG sysex, but it shouldn't do. (you lose channel 10 as a drum channel) Since MS GS synth is the default MIDI out device, and you can't change this so easily as you could in XP, every application that uses the default MIDI out eg. web browsers, Windows Media Player are affected."
