You feed the madness, and it feeds on you. 
I am Robj.

I started a channel on youtube in June, 2009 called 'DinkSmallwoodPT', it is home to many let's plays, Dmod tutorials and other style Dink Playthroughs, with guest appearances from random dinkers, and dmod authors.
For Dmod tutorial videos click here: Dmod Creation Tutorials
If you want to watch a playthrough for the original game, or a Dmod, you can probably find it at my channel: DinkSmallwoodPT. If there is a Dmod you would like to see a playthrough of, and it is not currently on the channel, than feel free to send me a private message on the forums and request it.

It probably is a problem with the Windows seven midi output.. the default Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth and SoundFont(sf2) file that windows seven comes with makes midi's sound like crap.. you can't change it through windows either.

Fix - make midis sound a lot better in windows seven.
To change it you need to search for a software by the name of 'CoolSoft's VirtualMIDISyth'.

EDIT: That's just the software that allows you to change your MIDI output device and soundfont, you still need a better soundfont to change it to, other than the default windows seven soundfont. I recommend 'Arachno'. It's about 136mb, but it increases the quality of midi's a lot, also adds more instruments which of course makes midi playback sound a lot better.
Archno Soundfont (Scroll down about halfway down the page and look for the "plain SF2 decompressed format link")

After installing VirtualMidiSynth, open it and go to the 'MIDI Mapper' tab and change the default midi output device from 'Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth' to 'CoolSoft's VirtualMIDISyth'. Then download Arachno, which will be a single file named something like this: Arachno SoundFont - Version 1.0.sf2. Inside VirtualMIDISynth go to the 'SoundFonts' tab, click the add button(the green plus sign), and navigate to the Arachno.sf2 file, click apply and ok. Close VirtualMIDISynth
