Macintosh Performa 6116 - Virtual PC 2.1.1 - Roland MT-32

Postby Dimitris1980 » 2011-2-06 @ 08:52

I have connected to my mac performa the roland mt-32 device. It plays fine (i use it for sierra games). Recently i installed the virtual pc version 2.1.1 emulator and i use it for dos games. The emulator suppors cd rom drive, printer, soundblaster etc. I would like to ask if there is a way to use the roland mt-32 via this emulator for the dos games. For the installation of roland mt-32 to dos, is there necessary to do some additions or changes in autoexec.bat or config.sys?

First you have to find out if the MT-32 itself is visible to the virtual machine at all.

If the virtual machine emulates a sound card for all sound functions including MIDI and doesn't have a way to send and receive MIDI to/from the outside world, it will not work no matter what you do.

Most likely it won't work.
VirtualPC emulates a soundblaster card and uses your system's soundcard as output. I don't think VP will pass through sysex and midi data. Could be though...

Under W7, MS Virtual PC can pass through the USB MIDI adapter. So maybe there is a similar solution available for Mac.
