Re: AWE64 Legacy

In AUTOEXEC.BAT: SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 H5 P300 E620 T6 F398 C:\PATH\TO\UNISOUND.COM /VC:80 Adjust the Sound Blaster base address, IRQ, and DMA channels to your liking, of course. The key is to move the AWE64 MPU-401 out of the way (P300), and the CQM (F398, which is a parameter specific to …

Re: X-Wing (floppy) problem on AMD 5x86-160

I never played X-Wing, but I found that its successor TIE Fighter has midi music that the SB16's MPU cannot handle. IIRC it is most noticeable as delays whenever a midi music track changes. You can test whether things run better and reliable with the OPL/FM music option, if so then you know what …

Re: About Roland Virtual Sound Canvas 3

What we really need to accomplish is to hack-upgrade the old 32-bit VSTs to the more modern 64-bit versions and find a way to use the original GS ROMs with a Roland SuperCanvas VST module. You'd need to decompile or completely reimplement them, sadly it isn't a simple conversion. There is …

Re: About Roland Virtual Sound Canvas 3

Is it Linux or Windows that has issues with low-latency audio? That might a big point on why this doesn't exist on a Pi. MT32-Pi isn't Linux, it's running bare metal on the Pi. VSTs are based on Windows, so you need both Wine and x86 to ARM translation to run them. Then it's a matter of redirecting …

Re: VST Midi Driver Midi Mapper

I'm sorry, but I utterly fail to see the relevance of iOS and Android having really basic (and not very good) MIDI support. In case somehow I was unclear, I am not saying that ARM can't do MIDI -- that wouldn't make sense as MIDI is basically an interpretation thing much like BASIC or etc, so just …

Re: Two MIDI modules for two computers

Nope, I'm not thinking about building a MIDI rack. Last night I was searching and came across with an idea: Get one DB-15 to MIDI adapter (that has 2x MIDI) and then connect the adapter on the computer that I'd use, so I'd just need the adapter and two MIDI cables. Thanks for the advice!! The two …

Re: VST Midi Driver Midi Mapper

Again I want to emphasize: I'm not saying "panic now!" I'm saying "eventually this is just not going to work in a meaningful way for purposes like serious retro gaming. We should prepare in advance instead of waiting until after it happens." But, I'm really just saying it on principle anyway. I …

Re: Two MIDI modules for two computers

The cheapest and fastest is likely to just be having MIDI cables connected to both computers and then just plugging in a module you want to use. Unless you are building a MIDI rack there's no reason to go with something complex and expensive involving MIDI input selectors.
