I wanted to get the output from the built in Midi synthesizer but could not do that without using cables or external programs.
Then I found Gervill which is supposed to be a better and also open Midi sequencer/synthesizer that can do this and also use soundfonts. It is also pure java.

I might take a closer look at this but I would like to hear from you first!
Has anyone of you used Gervill and what did you think of it?

Edit: I have now tested Gervill a lot and it is very good!

I looked for the "emergency" soundbank that is used if no soundbank is provided. It turned out that the soundbank was actually generated procedurally (source with (partly) the PADSynth algorithm, which is just so wonderfully beautiful Cheesy
Anyone who wants to learn procedurally generated instrument sounds should probably look in this file.

I see. They just used the old link but then the old site was removed.

Here is a link that might work:

Here is also a copy of that jar-file:
