Re: Sound Blaster 16 Bugs and Deficiencies Summary

Well, darn. It looks like Creative's bad habits started before the Sound Blaster 16. :| I found that the upper half of the quad amp at U11 on a CT1600 Sound Blaster Pro 2 was floating too. https://www.vogons.org/download/file.php?mode=view&id=100390 It's hard to tell but pins 8-10 and 12-14 are …

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

... a DIY waveblaster daughterboard which seeems to be fully compatible with MT-32 ... See: http://members.home.nl/c.kersten/ It says "And just today two more, very special new boards arrived from the same source: LAPC on a MIDI daughterboard! It must have been especially difficult sourcing those …

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

Well, I have checked again the video and he is using SoftMPU. Makes sense since Legend of Kyrandia doesn't work with UART mode. Nice to see it works great with 386 SX25. Is MT-32 emulation on GM cards capable of producing proper sound effects? Not completely, although it can be okay when titles …

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

Yeah, this could be the same thing. I know for sure it's just plain ISA sound card with MIDI daughterboard only but I have no idea how it looks like or how it works. I just know (thanks to the video) that compatibility is great and that it sounds excellent. Wish I knew more about this product! I'm …

Re: "DOS Subsystem for Linux"?

in Milliways
If memory servers, Linux from the distant past also had the ability (1990s? linload? loadlin?). LOADLIN. Very useful for those with sound cards that needed initialization by some DOS-only utility. LOADLIN works to this day. Reclocking a C3 CPU via SETMUL also persists into the Linux session if you …

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

Kyrandia doesn't use much in the way of custom instruments. SoftMPU and a Roland compatible wavetable card with MT-32 emulation will sound decently close to the real thing. Not saying that's what's going on as I'm not as knowledgeable as Hierophant or NewRisingSun, but Kyrandia isn't the high bar …

Re: Advice about retro speakers

Even in my very small city, the local scrap shops have no shortage of old small-bookshelf speakers (15 to 25cm high) from fair quality Japanese brands like Sony, Panasonic, Akai, Sanyo et al which are perfectly retro (from the same eras as our computers) and are sonically far superior to 99% of the …
