Midi Out to Wave In

Sep 2, 2013 at 9:33 AM

this might be a stupid question, but I've been stuck on it for the past few days : I need to get midi synth output on a separate input for stream post processing. Right now I've got my midi out connected to the built in windows midi synth and can get any midi sound I want.

But is there a way through naudio to get the output stream of midi out to say, plug it in a wave in? I know I can listen to a WasapiLoopbackCapture, but I need a stream containing exclusively midi output. Is it possible?

I was also thinking of passing through a midi server like Timidity and routing my wave outputs through it, but it'd be a real pain to go through that, and I'd really enjoy doing it through naudio directly.

If you have any input on that :)

It depends. Is it a software synth? In which case loopback capture is all that is possible. If hardware synth, you'd need to connect back into your soundcard.

Yeah, it's a software synth, so I'll go through loopback capture. I'll go for rerouting then. Thanks
