Really like dosbox and don't feel right asking but can you borrow dosbox's midi code and hack it into a doom source port (like prboom-plus, chocolate-doom, eternity, etc.)?
Reason I ask is because all the doom source ports seem to rely on sdl_mixer which has really messed up midi rendering and causes music to sound broken. Only zdoom (and maybe doomsday?) seem to support midi properly through timidity++ and don't suffer music issues; however they behave really badly in regards to original dos doom 1.9 behavior. I also use linux and been dealing with this issue for more than a few years which is another reason I ask (think windows users have problems with sdl_mixer too).
