Re: Will this run Munt?

in MT-32 General
Yeah, we've considered even a EFI module with DOSBox and stuff instead of a bootable flash powered by Windows 95 😀 Many things are possible but only if you spend time on that. What's often hardly available, so sad...

Re: Will this run Munt?

in MT-32 General
Unfortunately, there are really not many possibilities for parallelisation in mt32emu. The synth changes its state on the per-sample basis, it's very difficult (if possible) to predict all the internal parameters in advance, so rendering different partials in parallel seems to be the only option. …

Re: Will this run Munt?

in MT-32 General
That's all correct, and the OP should choose the OS wisely, so that it provides a good task scheduling and thus minimise the influence of the context switching overhead on the high-priority thread. Yet of course, increasing the renderer buffer size may significantly lower the overhead, it's obvious, …

Re: Will this run Munt?

in MT-32 General
Hmm, I don't fully understand the advantages of splitting a piece of work between threads that can be done in a single thread. To avoid unwanted preemption of the thread doing audio rendering with mt32emu (that is by nature a realtime process), we'd rather need to boost the priority of that thread, …

Re: Will this run Munt?

Does MUNT utilize multiple Cores ? Define MUNT :) To be serious, the mt32emu library itself is nearly agnostic to multithreading, but applications that utilise the library are known to be thread-aware. For example, DOSBox (with the mt32emu patch) can render MT-32 audio in 1 thread and emulate the …

Re: Munt issue with Windows 10

in MT-32 General
"backroom"? lol I think this method was sole back in 2004, and it's been an official way ever since... Anyway, nothing to worry about: there can be only one working mt32emu MIDI driver instance in the system, and it must communicate properly with the GUI app (exactly in this direction). The latter …

Re: Windows 10 stops detecting Munt.

Depends on what you mean by "(+two updates https://sourceforge.net/projects/munt/files/m … /2.3.0-Updates/)". The update mt32emu_win32drv-1.5.1-win32-amd64.zip is dedicated to solve the problem with Windows 10 2004 compatibility. Did you install the updated driver or just reinstall the munt-2.3.0 …

Re: Munt Reloaded - Development

Hmm, both of these FXs are GEN0-specific, IIRC. Are you sure smf2wav is pointed to a ROM directory that does not contain e.g. CM-32L ROM set? AFAICT, there is no way to make smf2wav use specific ROM files so it picks "the best" available. (I'm considering adding an option for it, similar to one …

Re: Problem with Munt+Dosbox

in MT-32 General
Hmm, isn't the tooltip appearing when you mouse-over it clear enough? 😀 If not, there is a rule of thumb: use integer 16-bit samples unless you need extremely high-quality and clean audio output.

Re: Problem with Munt+Dosbox

in MT-32 General
@Mark_81 Note, if you have updated Windows recently, there is a known problem with the mt32emu MIDI driver being constantly disabled by Windows 10 2004. An update of the driver can be found at SF.

Re: munt CPU speed requirements?

in MT-32 General
Feel free to ignore VSS. Those are really virtual 😀 I guess RSS and its parts (anon/file) are more important. Still, it includes space occupied by shared libs, so this may be used by more than 1 process...

Re: munt CPU speed requirements?

in MT-32 General
whats ram requirement for munt ? Short answer: modest for many use cases. Given a more detailed definition of "munt", and considering the platform to run it on, it should be possible to clarify the memory requirements further. Besides, some programs are able to load a MIDI file into RAM entirely, …
