Keep in mind that many factors go into play in this list such as:

  • Operating system (Windows 8 worsens performance, whereas Windows 7 is optimal)
  • Soundfont (larger soundfonts are more bearing on the system's resources)
  • Synth (or lack of synth; different synths are better at handling MIDIs)
  • CPU: single-core performance (The MIDI Muffin has the best CPU in the team but because it is 6 core, it does not work well in single-core environments) (Intel Haswell CPUs have much higher performance in MIDIs than older microarchitertures). 
  • GPU: Graphics performance for Synthesia and MIDITrail.
  • Computer load at the time (what programs were open, etc.)

This list is based on MIDI performance (most MIDI programs are single core so multi-core CPUs might not benefit), not full out performance.
