Nope, the BASSMIDI Driver has nothing to do with the MSGS SW Synth (or it's operation). Two totally seperate animals... "apples and oranges", so to speak.
I found a really good SC soundfont here
, but it's not QUITE the same as MSGS.
As far as I can tell, that soundfont was originally based upon the GM.DLS file that is used by the MSGS SW Synth.
The "tuning" part prolly refers to:
The utility "AWave Studio" has the capability to convert DLS format sound sets to most any other sound set format, including the soundfont format (SF2). Unfortunately (at least with my experience with older versions of AWave Studio), it really butchers the sound of the final resulting soundfont... things WAY out of tune, instruments that don't play at all, and such.
Judging by the "comments" section embedded in the SCC1T2.sf2 soundfont file, it appears that it was originally converted from the original GM.DLS sound set. And I'm guessing, someone else prolly worked on it a bit more to correct the tuning and other problems with the original conversion.
