: : : I have an onboard sis PCI sound accelerator with a built in midi synthesizer, called sissynth.exe. I use win 98 and as far as I can tell everything is setup properly. However, when I try to play a midi file in media player or cakewalk I get an error message saying "midi sample file open failed--download from internet". But I have no clue what I'm looking for I've done several searches and came up empty. Can anyone help me figure this out? Or at least tell me what to look for so I can download the file from the net. Any help greatly appreaciated.

: You need to go to the SIS website, download the sis7012_106 drivers files. The sisauduT is within that file. It's a 6MB zip file. when you run it, it asks you to point to the file. You need to point to the GM.DLS file, I'm not 100% sure of the name, but the extension is correct. Do a search to find what directory. I think it's C:\windows\system32\drivers. You can also find it using dxdiag.exe the direct X utility. Look under midi, the windows midi port will point to the correct dls file. Then you need to go to settings\control panel\multimedia properties\midi and select sissythesiser as the single instrument. This procedure is for win98, I have no idea about anyother versions.

Also, I forgot, first after you download the 6mb file, unzip it somewhere on the desktop for ease. remove the sis audio using add\remove programs. restart. when it says pci audio detected, hit cancel. Then run setup under that unzip folder, it should be called 106. it will install the drivers and you restart. then you have to go under the 106 folder and run the sisaudut.exe. Then you point to the dls file. And follow as above.
