Midi CAN be terrible! There's no doubt of that.  But
midi can be sublime as well, with the right equipment
and taking care to create a real performace file, not
just a mechanical note-by-note transcription.

I use a Korg N5 synthesizer/keyboard which is not
top-of-the-line, but has pretty darn good orchestral
sounds.  I also use Giga Studio sampling synthesizer
which has incredible orchestral and solo instrument
sounds.  As for performance standards, I recently
spent easily 3 months on my midi performance of the
first movement of Beethoven's 6th.  And that 3 months
of work started AFTER I got all the notes entered.
That's 3 months (evenings and weekends only) of
performance dynamics work. THAT kind of midi can be
wonderful.
