Re: General midi mapping of instruments

Ok i turned on the record and then started doom, so this is part of the opening music. Hi, The problem is obvious. Something is filtering Program Change messages. Your dump contains zero program change messages overall including all channels. It's interesting since the most problematic types of …

Re: General midi mapping of instruments

HI im hoping someone can clear some of the details of what is happening with a new setup i have been trying out. Im using a PCMCIA EXP Traveller Game / Midi card. This allows for a Midi device in windows. I have it selected as my single instrument midi device in windows 98. Fortunately the device …

Re: Phantom MIDI

... As for the MS Synth, I agree that it is supposed to be the default device for MIDI applications, but in my experience, some DOS games just won't play off it. In the case of Sierra's Leisure Suit Larry 3 (ScummVM) that I tried last night, specifying the MS Synth device will result in FM MIDI ( …

Re: Phantom MIDI

Okay, now I'm pretty sure the MS synth is behind this, after all. After some test runs I found that it sounds even better than the SC-VA that I paid $125 for! The SCVA was quite a disappointment actually. Maybe if you're a musician you'd benefit from it, but I'm just a listener, and it not only …

Re: Phantom MIDI

Well, Savihost is free and it gives me what I needed, so I didn't look for other hosts. Both VSTi Midi driver and FSMP are also free :) This is also possible. I've thought about that as well. But what triggers its Roland emulation? In the days before I discovered any kind of MIDI synth VST, all I …

Re: Phantom MIDI

1. You cannot create Midi ports with CoolSoft MIDI Mapper. As its name suggests it can only select what port should be the default port on your system. Maybe you are referring to Coolsoft Virtual Midi synth instead? That really creates a virtual SF2 soundfont based synth on your system that …

Re: Phantom MIDI

This has been happening since the days I was using Sound Canvas VA. Now that I have the actual hardware SC-55mkII, this phenomenon is still there. So here it is: With SCVA, you need to first create a MIDI port using CoolSoft MIDI Mapper or LoopMIDI, then load the SCVA DLL before any MIDI can be …

Re: How do you send sound to Midi output?.

...its a same not being able to use midi with DOS. is that why people run games from pure DOS? Thanks again. Not with PCI sound cards like SB Live/Audigy series. Actually very few PCI cards supports MPU-401 with external synths even under pure DOS (AFAIK Aureal Vortex cards support it). ISA sound …

Re: How do you send sound to Midi output?.

Hello, I am looking for some advice on getting the signal on the midi output from my pc to my sc55. My PC is a P4 running win98SE, I have a Audigy 2 zs sound card with the joystick/midi port connected. I only build the pc a few weeks ago and installed the drivers using Joseph_Joestar's guide …

Re: DOS32AWE - DOS4GW compatible DOS Extender with Sound Blaster AWEUTIL MIDI emulation support for Protected mode

Secondly, which games use custom MT-32 soundbanks? Almost all MT-32 games use some forms of custom instruments. It's much easier to list the ones that do NOT: https://minirevver.weebly.com/mt-32-music.html (Monkey Island 1 and Dune 1 are the most famous exceptions that do NOT use custom instruments …

Re: Tuning L2 cache on or off has no effect? (Athlon "Thunderbird" 1200C on Asus A7V133-C)

With L1 enabled and L2 disabled, the difference could only be visible when data block sizes fell within 128KB or 256KB. Just as I said so. Compared to contemporary P4 the L2 cache was not so important to Athlon CPU's performance. That's why even the Duron with its anemic 64K L2 cache was more than …

Re: Tuning L2 cache on or off has no effect? (Athlon "Thunderbird" 1200C on Asus A7V133-C)

Hi all, I got a system with Athlon "Thunderbird" 1200C on Asus A7V133-C last week and, after some painstaking troubleshooting (turned out the SDRAM was faulty), I started testing the system with CPU-Z Vintage Edition and TOPBENCH. The BIOS has the option of turning L1 and L2 caches on and off; …
