One perhaps quick alternative is to use CoolSoft Virtual Midi midi2mp3 convertor. Then you're simply playing an mp3 file, not a midi file. 

Another is to use VLC. It can 'play' midi after you configure it for a sound font (this is what I do).

Until now, I use WMP to play the midi compiled in lilypond. I have coolsoft virtualmidisynth installed with a sf2 of my taste and no problem, everything works fine.

The problem: WMP blocks the midi file while (and after) it's playing, so if I modify something in lilypond and I want to hear it, I have to close WMP, then compile, go to the folder and reproduce again.. and I'm composing so I do it a LOT of times.

Question: anybody knows a mid player with does not block the file, so it loads the file each time for playing it?
