Play MIDI files?

P: n/a
Does anybody know how to play MIDI files?
I do not want to use P/Invoke or DirectX.
Maybe there is a free 3rd party Library but I do not know any supporting
MIDI music.
I tried the library "Bass" from www.un4seen.com but MIDI music isn't
supported.

Hi Cody,

The best I have found is FMod from http://fmod.org. I recommend getting
FModEX because it comes with a C# wrapper, if you use VB.Net you can just
compile the wrapper and link to the class. I don't know of any .Net
implementations so your only choice is to use P/Invoke (Win32 API, FMod,
others). Many come with wrappers though. For example there is a Managed
version of DirectX that is generating a lot of buzz,
