    Need Applet Testers


    I am trying to determine what (if any) software MIDI synthesizers are common on non-Microsoft Windows operating systems (such as Mac OS, Linux, Solaris), so I know what to use in my game, depending on what OS the player is running.

    If you are not running Microsoft, would you please run the following applet:

    http://www.paulscode.com/source/MIDI...viceDiscovery/

    Please copy and paste the output from the Java Console. Be sure to mention what operating system and version you are running.

    Also, if you happen to have any knowledge about the subject, feel free to chime in

    Thanks in advance!

    Another applet to test (all operating systems)


    I didn't get any responses here for the first applet, but that's ok. I managed to get the input I needed from other sources.

    I have run into another problem, though, related to changing MIDI volume. I created another applet I would like tested:

    MIDI Applet

    This time I have no preference what operating system you are running. Please run the applet and use the arrow keys to adjust the volume number all the way to 0, then back up to 127. Please post the output, and include your operating system, hardware, browser, and a brief description of the results. If you know your Java version, please mention that as well.

    Possible results are likely to be:
    1) MIDI did not play.
    2) MIDI played, but volume never changed.
    3) Volume changed, but did not become silent at volume=0.
    or
    4) Everything worked correctly.

    Thanks again!

    It worked perfectly.
    -Vista Home Basic x32
    -Onboard sound
    -Latest JRE
    4 MIDI Devices:
    Microsoft MIDI Mapper
    Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth
    Real Time Sequencer
    Java Sound Synthesizer
    Using 'Real Time Sequencer' as the Sequencer.
    Variable 'sequencer' is NOT an instance of Synthesizer
    Using 'Java Sound Synthesizer' as the Synthesizer.
    Method 'getDefaultSoundbank()' returned 'null'.
    Edit: One thing I noticed is that the last last note seems to trail off just a bit when I hit stop.
