Winamp Midi bug

Ok, I have: Winamp 2.78 from a full install
Dell Inspiron 8000/800mHz PIII
WinME, 128Mb ram
SurfSmurf's oldsk00l mod plugin
some in_umx plugin
Peter's TFMX plugin and SPC plugin
Au/snd plugin
LeOnArD's ST-sound plugin
SidAmp 1.4 Beta
Official Vqf plugin
Peter's latest in_ogg
Other assorted sh*t...
My problem:
I don't know when this started because I haven't played .mid's for a while, but now Winamp crashes when I try to advance to the next file, and often simply when I try to close Winamp while a midi is playing. The files don't crash Windows Media Player.
HELP!

BTW, I have an .xm that crashes in_mod.dll. I'll upload a down-sized version that shows the bug shortly...
Never mind, I can't zip it down to less than 102kb. The file is Over2.xm by Probe of TBL. I got this file from the 'MODs covered on HVSC' page. (Don't ask me where, I don't remember off the top of my head.)

RTFM. what soundcard do you have ? i'm almost sure that your soundcard drivers are responsible for this.

I have the same problem.....

Well, this isn't a total solution or anything, but I can tell you I have the same problem. Every time I try to play a file in WinAmp, a box will pop up telling me that it has performed an illegal operation. By clicking the Details button on that box, I found out that it was in_midi.dll that had crashed it. I simply moved the file out of my plugins folder. I'll keep it out of there until I get a fixed file. So, I can't play midi files in WinAmp for now , but at least it's a temporary solution, so that I can listen to the rest of my music regularly. You should see what file is bugging your computer, and move it out of the plugins folder for now. Or, if you don't feel comfortable with that, complain to WinAmp. I also found that the beta of WinAmp 3 works fine on my computer, so you could try that too.

PLEASE FIX IT, WINAMP!!!

P.S. My computer isn't as good as yours, but I don't think that's the problem. And the midi problem only started for me in the new WinAmp 2.78 version.

[edit] MIDI plug-in has just been updated, should fix some potential weird problems

Thank you, PP. It worked. I feel like an @$$ for not trying to change devices. It was my ESS Maestro Directsound plugin that malfunctioned. I am downloading your new in_midi now.

Can I post a module-related problem here too? I have a module reputedly (C) 1987 Karsten Sorensen, creator of Ultimate Soundtracker, and the file plays a few notes off key in winamp's built-in player but not SurfSmurf's oldsk00l mod plugin. There, it sounds cool. Just thought PP could hack in_mod to work this Ultimate Soundtracker file better.

what's exactly wrong with it ? does modplug play it correctly ? oldsk00l plugin isn't going to work on my main dev system (the dll refuses to load at all under win2k)

thanks god i've fixed it that quickly. seems that some lame shit is installing creative's soundfont drivers on systems that don't even have creative's hardware (causing old in_midi to puke).
