@monsterovich It seems you’ve added a MIDI port with some magic there. Do I need to use some other software to do it, and how? Your app deserves more attention from the community (and more documentation as well ;)) I’ve uncommented the lines in launchpadd.ini and replaced the setting with miditest, but at the time I have default Windows GM synth deactivated, so I couldn’t test if the server receives anything, but I believe so, and anyway it’s cool.

P. S. Oh, I’ve been wrong about the docs, now I found the wiki. Will read.

P. P. S. Now at least I’ve configured client & server to play sounds at their own without MIDI. :) Cool indeed, but unfortunately latency is too high. Is it possibly my Wi-Fi?

P.³ S. Yay, just some loopMIDI and it works like a charm! Totally inaudible latency when receiving in Tracktion! It seems I’m going to have to learn some MIDI message codes… :D

I realise it’s off topic here, but just can’t add one more postscript:

P.⁴ S. As I deduce, there’s currently no way to change preset on client startup. It’s a bit frustrating that changing preset needs editing the setting file manually. Is startup selection an option for newer versions?

There is always a possibility. To decrease the latency I even tried to connect my smartphone to PC directly through the wi-fi-spot and had a good success (use this scheme: laptop - host, smartphone - client, otherwise you will experience major lags due to bad hardware on your smartphone). There is another way - just use the lan cable for your PC, it always works without issues.

Thanks. However, when selecting pure MIDI, latency is perfectly small, and it’s just what I need. :)

This is my fav terminal emulator for Windows
https://conemu.github.io/

A free and open source optical drive emulator, simple, clean and less bloated than daemon tools
http://wincdemu.sysprogs.org/portable/

My go-to program whenever i need to record an optical disc or dump the image of it
https://cdrtfe.sourceforge.io/

And a very cool MIDI visualiser, with realtime 3D piano roll ^~^
https://osdn.net/projects/miditrail/

Raster graphics editor, way less clunky than GIMP imho
https://krita.org/en/

BTW, i'm not sure if this thread is solely about software whose code is public, or just free (as in freeware), thus posting only open-sourced ones for now. Will add more later, after this gets clarified i guess
