Midi Mapper for Windows 7 and terrible Vista.
Playback of SoundFont enabled MIDI files using standard media players (such as Windows Media Player) requires the operating system to offer the ability to change the "Default MIDI Device" to a SoundFont compatible MIDI Synthesizer. This "Default MIDI Device" switching option was removed from Windows Vista and W7 (!), though the registry information for the "Default Midi Device" can still be modified to select SoundFont compatibiliy synthesizers, or making use of a tool called PLW Midi Mapper.

Support for custom MIDI soundfonts
Spider Player allows you to choose SF2 soundfont used for MIDI playback to vary how your MIDI files sound. It is also possible to convert MIDI files to MP3 and other formats using soundfonts that suit them best. 32-bit sound processing for crystal clear sound
Spider Player can process sound with double precision internally. So even if your sound card is not capable of output in such resolution, the sound quality is still improved. The difference is especially noticeable, if DSP effects (such as peaking equalizer) are enabled.

Target audience: At present the kX driver is aimed primarily at musicians, and especially those who wish to get the most out of their Emu10k1 and 10k2-based soundcards (SBLive, EMU APS, Audigy, Audigy2 and SB 512) and who have traditionally been left behind by the big soundcard manufacturers, who prefer to concentrate their efforts on the more lucrative gamers market.
Now you can throw your Creative Lab drivers in the garbage can. It works for Windows XP and Windows 7 !
