I'm writing some software to generate midi sounds by creating a .mid file.
I'm very out of date with what is the current best way to use midi. Would you get an external module and connect that to your PC? Or an internal sound card?
What I'm after is some very nice orchestral sounds.
It's only a hobby/play thing so I don't at this stage want to spend loads on gear but a good 'module' that can be triggered by my program would be a start. I'm assuming I could then hook the module up to a standard hi-fi.
Thanks in advance.
