Re: Looking for a japanese vintage computers forum

I have lots of Japanese machines, but none of them are DOS PCs. For English forums, there is NFG games, and Tokugawa Corporate forums. Both are quite slow, but we exist. However Japanese DOS users are hard to find. All the good stuff is on Sharp/FM/MSX/NEC. I see no point to messing with real PC …

Re: Best sound/music option for DooM?

You all had to mention a module I didn't have... Now I have one on the way. What I have been interested in for quite a while is a non-existent analog synth that is GM compatible. How cool would that be? Akai did make an analog rompler based on sounds from different analog synths, but it isn't GM …

Re: Best sound/music option for DooM?

For Doom 1, Akai SG01k is my personal favorite, it's loud, over-blown, in-your-face samples just fit the mood best for me. I take note, the thread is about the best option using only software but didnt know about this midi module, i were searching videos in youtube and it has a very nice clean …

Re: OPN music on an ISA sound card?

I stick to MSX for VGMPlay usage. Incredibly versatile support for original chips. But very expensive to build a full setup. For modern PC usage, the Japanese have made both G.I.M.I.C. and Re:Birth. Re:Birth supports more exotic chip setups, while G.I.M.I.C. has built in PCM for simplicity. Again …

Re: Chex quest

in DOS
Yes, that's the real Chex Quest "3" the final version of the game. It comes as a stand alone game, but you can just throw the wad into your preferred release of GZDoom as well. There was also a totally different Episode 3 made years ago, but it was an unofficial fan game, and very poor quality from …

Re: Chex quest

in DOS
Chex Quest was always freeware. Episode 1 came in cereal boxes. Episode 2 was a free download from the ChexQuest website. The cool dude who made them both then did Episode 3 about 15 years later and released all 3 episodes in one big mega wad as Chex Quest 3.

Re: Roland U-110 for games

In theory it could work, but even if it does, I think you will be much happier with a real 32P or 64. The 32P is hardlocked to use channels 10-16 (the PCM slot = channel 10 iirc). But U110 can use channels 1-16, and will have to be manually arranged to match. Also the 32P has more internal …

Re: Roland CM-32p and MT-32 advantages?

X68000's are basically the Ferrari's of the computer world. When they are well cared for, they are beautiful. But buy a cheap one that has been in the back of the closet for 20 years, and you got some work to do. My XVI was serviced by someone who knew what they were doing, and has been rock solid …

Re: Yamaha TG-100 / TG-300 and MT-32 mode

Those videos are mine. :) All emulators support MIDI afaik. They typically just output to Windows default MIDI device. A USB-MIDI cable, or even a soft synth like MUNT is fine. Though some games support some fancier modules like CM64. You do have to configure the emulated x68000 to have a MIDI …

Re: sc-88st pro

SW1000XG has no 64bit drivers afaik. VSTis are ok, but limited still. MU1000/2000/500 have modern win10x64 driver support, way more sounds and options, works on all your MIDI ready systems, has digital toslink output, and supports up to 3 plgs for the hardcore. Internal cards and limited softsynths …

Re: Making a midi device tower

If you only have room for 1 or 2 or 3 MIDI devices which would you choose to get the authentic sound the game developer intended for you to hear ? For me: CM-64 SC-88Pro MU-2000EX But there is always room for one more! Regarding mixers and cables, I've been building up my MSX VGMPlay rig, and it's …
