It does this so it can let the synth complete a midi stream without closing the audio device, because other midi drivers close the audio device when the stream is finished, and just because the midi stream is finished does not mean the synth is finished synthesizing the output.
By the way, do you have the time to write a midi to wav converter that is based on these drivers?
Thanks.

I just added the latest version of dmxopl to the patches that are included with my version of the driver. The configuration utility has been updated to reflect this.

I hate to ask in this thread but can anyone provide the patches used in these software drivers as ".sb" files to use with ALSA's OPL3 driver?

I have a working CMI OPL3 in hardware and the default sb and o3 that ships with ALSA is extremely ugly and was clearly made by someone who doesn't know about music.

It would be nice to have the different DMX timbres so I can listen to Doom, Doom 2, TNT Evilution, and Heretic and Hexen on actual hardware.

I am not sure how to do this.
P.S.
I have a CMI8738 and I want to see if it has an OPL3. How can I do this?

Download OPL3Bankeditor ( I used the AppVeyor dev build) and all you have to do is open the included op2 files, and then save them as melodic and percussion .sb files.

Just boot up Linux and check to see if it's listed as a MIDI device in ALSA. I'm running a fairly modern Linux kernel and I can still make use of a OPL3.

Code: Select all
$ aplaymidi -l
 Port    Client name                      Port name
 14:0    Midi Through                     Midi Through Port-0
 16:0    C-Media CMI8738                  C-Media CMI8738 MIDI
 17:0    OPL3 FM synth                    OPL3 FM Port

Is there a .deb I can hopefully throw into my system? I don't think I can get the necessary dev packages to build from source.
