online MIDI Voice Tester? Sound cards and GM devices from various
manufacturers each have their own, unique sounds (or wavetables). The Buzzwood
MIDI Voice Tester provides an easy way to preview each of them, with
an individual demo sequence for each voice.
The locations of the 128 voices are slightly different form the GM 'standard', making some
of the voices a little easier to find. For instance, I've eliminated the Ethnic category and placed those instruments among the other groups. Fiddle is now next to Violin, and Tympani is now in the percussion section.
Click your way around the list and you may discover some new timbres, tricks and tones.
Then try it on a friend's computer. The voices may sound strikingly different.
