i suggest to simply use pre installed drivers

Registered to the forum to thank you as well. I had problems with my real GUS 486 setup, never got the Ultramidi working. I even though that my GUS (proud first owner since 90's) is broken somehow and just let it be. But after googling to this thread I decided to give it a try. I downloaded your pre installed driver package, extracted it to the compact flash card (replacing current ulrasnd folder), rebooted the 486 and without much hope ran the mididemo.bat. First nothing happened, I hit the space bar couple of times. Without realizing that it takes some time to load the song, I freaked out as the midi started playing! This is the first time I've heard my GUS playing midi's since the 90's.
I'm so glad I kept the GUS, knowing what the current value is. Gravis Ultrasound was so precious to me as a kid, it served me well until being replaced by generic Sound Blaster card. I lost my 486dx4 setup when my parents house was sold. But just couldn't let the GUS go so i saved it, kept in storage for years. Still have regrets about the 486 though, I should have preserved it too... I was able to grab decent 486 setup a while a go, glad to see that Dosbox can support GUS as well.
