MIDI does not work well

The midi keep stops, and it can only play like staccato notes. I am curruntly using Realtek Audio Device. Should I use another midi player?

RealTek is the sound module, not the MIDI "player". What actual media player are you using for MIDI files? A player in a game? Windows Media Player? or some other MIDI Player (such as what is included in the Band in a Box program)?

The basic Microsoft GS Wavetable MIDI Synth is not the best in the world too.

Is this ONLY MIDI? or it a problem with ALL Audio? From your last post it sounds like ALL Audio is the problem and not just MIDI.
