Microsoft Internal Softsynth

May 21, 2007 | 5:17 am

Is there a way to instead of using the internal "Microsoft Synthesizer" piano sound, perhaps get a non decaying sine wave to be triggered by that synthesizer? I was wondering this as I was trying out some tutorials and wanted to test some of the note-off functionalities with a preset that does not decay so I can know more certainly when I’ve left notes hanging. I’ve tried sending channel change messages and it doesn’t seem to be doing anything. Thanks though in advance for any help.

Check out the pgm object for sending program changes.

Google the MIDI spec and you can find a general MIDI program that’s
appropriate.
