why does midi music sound so shitty? last time i checked we lived in the year 2005, surely there is more realistic synthesization of actual instruments?

are there any high-end midi cards available?

You're thinking of the old monophonic midi sequences. Nearly all synthesized music is created in, with or controlled by MIDI, as well as probably 100% of all [digital] sequencing or piana/keyboard related tasks. You more than liekly listen to some piece of music created with MIDI every single day. There is a lot of great information at www.midi.org, like this explanation of MIDI for example.

Here are some MIDI devices if you're interested.
