Hi,

Here is the Release 23, with some correction for the Tandy DAC and the Gravis UltraSound.

20/11/2020 Beta 23
- Improved the Tandy DAC Output (It was stopping with the "Too Slow" Message sometimes)
- When you unselect EMS from the Option, it now still use EMS but use the DOS Memory in priority.
> Speedup the mixing on 16Bit Memory machines, with an 8Bit EMS Board.
- Tandy DAC Selected by default if detected (If no SB/GUS)
- Corrected the Pause for SB / Tandy DAC
- Gravis Ultrasound Notes precision improved. (More if Channels > 14)
- Gravis Ultrasound Sample loading time reduced by 30%
- Improved the Output menu
- Added InterWave support (GUS PnP, Not Tested)

I just tried this latest version with the GUS PnP clone- sadly I wasn't able to make it output any sound so far, with or without the interwave checked. The player is behaving like always and showing track progress, but no sound coming out of it (like the output was muted). E.g. ST3 is still working nicely and modm22 was working before also.

On the Real GUS, it was working but with some notes missing.

I corrected this problem, Hope it is the same for you, can you test again ?

Sadly, no change for me. Just tried v24 (with interwave checked and also unchecked) and it plays in total silence whereas replacing it with v22 plays it again nicely right away.

I will need to discard all my changes then 🙁

I will need you anyway a little more, as I don't have a GUS PnP and it is working both on DOSBox and real hardware

Do you try interwave first ?

If we set Interwave, it activate the Interwave Mode, please try in GUS Mode First.

There are too Few difference between my two codes now to explain this.

Here is "MODMGT" for your GUS Test.

I did write a function for GUS registry write, so I removed it from everywhere on GUS Mode.

@root42, were you able to test ?

No, sorry. I am testing a different soundcard at the moment, the GUSar isn't in the machine at the moment... Will take me a couple of days, probably.

I just tried it: it starts up in regular mode and works fine. When I check 'Interwave', it becomes silent. When I do uncheck it again, it plays fine again.
Wish I could provide you some easy remote access to this system, but sadly there is no networked KVM here, yet. 😁

Thanks for the test,

Finally, better than nothing 😀
So I removed everything using my Register write function , except the interwave init...
I took the code from my Other player I did in 1997, but never had an Interwave to test even at that time. (Nobody reported it did not work...)
There is something weired in the I/O Timing of your card.

I wait to see if somebody else can test.

Oh, I can also try it on another system and the original PnP tomorrow, if you suspect this card or system.

I've also tested it now with an original PnP in the same and also in a different system with a completely different setup (first one being a 486DX2-66, the second one a PII-266, albeit with caching disabled since it otherwise throws the well know runtime error 200): modmgt behaves the same everywhere, no sound with the Interwave checked, sound again as soon as that's unchecked. Hope this at leasts rules out most weird things my environment could have done.
