I am using the latest ykhwong's DosBox SVN build (2015!) coupled with MUNT in order to emulate MT-32 optimized games. I recently also downloaded a trial version of Roland SoundCanvas VA, in order to play General MIDI, and SC-55 optimized games.
This is how I do it:
1) Extract my favorite game to a folder (i.e. Gods - my favorite game!)
2) 7zip the ykhwong's DosBox SVN build, into that folder
3) Edit doxbox.ini file in order to set the midiconfig= to the proper port (in my case, 1 is the MT-32 Emulation port, 2 is the Roland SoundCanvas VA)
4) Play the game!
QUESTION: I wanted to know if there is a *freeware alternative* to to SoundCanvas VA for SC-55 optimized games, that you would recommend.
