Improve the MIDI device selection.

As of now, the current one is horrible. Let's say I'm on fluidsynth, and want to change to OPL. This means I have to switch between a bunch, including the slow ones, like MS GS WS, LibADl, and libOPN, which is extremely annoying. A better way would be like the way it shows the MIDI device specific configs in GZDoom. Once you click on a specific MIDI device, it will start, rather than having to spam the mouse button and go through the slow ones mentioned earlier.


What I mean:

The current (and horrible) system: https://i.postimg.cc/XvCcZ7B3/Screensho ... 134859.png


What we can use in place of the old and horrible system: https://i.postimg.cc/Kjqgqd3J/Screensho ... 135119.png

Some modifications would be needed for this to work:

Allow the user to select any MIDI device, like the current system.
Make the title "MIDI Device" to not confuse users.


Edit:NO, I'm NOT on Windows 98. It's just a skin. I'm on W10.

Edit: In case y'all don't know what I mean, I mean to make the MIDI device scroll through list a menu, like the MIDI device config menu, whith the appropriate changes.
