MIDI files transferred over the internet work just the opposite of digital audio--a tune which takes just a few seconds to download will play for several minutes.
The bottom line is that MIDI sequences sound much better on high-end, wavetable cards. If you are buying a new sound card, make sure it is a wavetable one.

You can get wave tabel quality sound even if you have a cheap normal sound card by using what so called software wave tabel it gives a realy very good quality sound.The program is called WIN GROVE and it is only in one dissket the catch is that you need a lettel fast CPU.
