I'm building a Tandy 1000 game library and have the graphics under control but am now looking at sound.
The Miles Sound system is great as I can leave the heavy lifting up to it but the midi playback sounds bad without some basic ADSR for bell sounds and vibrato etc.
I know its CPU intensive but is there any library out there or midi drivers for the Tandy 3 voice for the Miles Sound System that have basic ADSR built in?

ADSR on the Tandy involves programatically lowering the volume of each sound channel manually during playback. Hence the CPU dependence.

Maybe you can contact Noah Aman from the Planet X3 team. He wrote a whole tracker for Tandy, PC speaker and Adlib for X3. Can't find his contact information, but you could post a request in the public Planet X3 Facebook group.
