Hi, I am aware that usually, in Audacity, MIDI support is quite basic, and it can only display MIDI, but is unable to work with it. However, after installing FFmpeg for Audacity, I noticed that MIDI is played, however, it is using something extremely primitive. From what I get from the import, I noticed that it lists MIDI as an FFmpeg compatible file, so the synth that is playing MIDI must be there. So I'm curious. Has anyone seen this FFmpeg MIDI support? And if so, what exactly is this synth meant to be?
