MIDI music can be pretty awesome with the right hardware or soundfont/banks loaded.
It's getting the right banks though. But yeah, there's something special about midi music, especially on a really good soundfont set. Nothing really beat the old awe64 and Yamaha sets, they were great.

Yep. I have often found midi music can be quite good and memorable. I have fond memories of many CT, FF6, & FF7 songs. It is really crazy what people did with the audio tech of the era even not on PCs. What they did on PCs was often even better, but both were great.

The point is the original Playstation versions did not use midi, but the PC release stupidly did. They did not restore the original music for this re-release. It sounds like shit.

I appreciate the MIDI nostalgia everyone is having here. That said, absolutely agree with StingingVelvet. It didn't matter what soundfonts you had back in 97, it sucked beyond balls compared to the OST. Every single track on the PC version was pathetic, the most obvious of which were One Winged Angel and Main Theme (aka Overworld). I am blown away they didn't update the midi to the OST for, arguably (FFVI is still my favorite), Nobuo Uematsu's greatest work for this release. It's 2012 ffs.
