Cannon Fodder with Roland MT32

Getting old DOS games working on modern hardware. (DOSBox topics belong in DOSBox areas below, not here).

Cannon Fodder with Roland MT32

I've been trying this for a while and can't get it to work.
Does anyone ever manage to get cannon fodder to work on your DOS PC with the MT32?
It crashes the computer every time.

The MT-32 music in Cannon Fodder does not work in DOSBox when cycles are too high; e.g. the music works at 8000 cycles but not at 10000 cycles. So, on a real system you may need to slow things down: turn off turbo mode (if applicable), disable CPU cache, use slowdown utilities, etc.

Minimum processor requirement for Cannon Fodder is 20 MHz 386SX, so just be careful not to go below that level of speed.
