Roland E-20/30 queries

Hey folks, This is a confusing one. I had never heard of the Roland E line until someone pointed them out to me, but for those who didn't know either they're Roland LA synths on keyboards, E-5, E-10, E-20 and E-30. The basic E-5/10 appear cut down versions of the MT-32 and D-110, so aren't of …

Re: Can Roland SC-88VL emulate MT-32?

Most if not all games will not be compatible. No Sierra games will be, for example. The only one that might be from memory is the first Kyrandia game, and even so, it won't have SFX. The MT-32 map in the SC line is not really for compatibility but legacy support, and is no use for gaming (at least, …

Re: Game will ONLY work with CD in drive

in Windows
Pitfall works on every system with tweaking. I'm not 100% sure but I THINK I got it working on Win10. Def Win 7 and XP. The important part is editing the registry entry, I don't remember why, but maybe the drive it looks for (see the problems the OP was having), and possibly another. No …

Re: The Roland CM-500 GS/LA Sound Module

"That narrows it down a bit, so it's either an issue with the extra channels that play on the CM-500 (as with some of the earlier Sierra games)" Just to explain this, the reason this "bug" occurs is that 16-channel MIDI wasn't really a thing in 1988-1991, so Sierra composers put Adlib, PC Speaker …

Re: Roland Sound Canvas Prices

There are a ton of non-Sound Canvas modules which are a SC-55 or variant, too. Boss DR-330, Roland MT-90, MT-120, and several others I can't recall right now. Not to mention SC-33, SC-50, SC-55ST, SC-55K, etc etc. Bottom line - these often go for a lot less money. Over here in Australia I've seen a …

Re: Yamaha MU2000EX

Hey John, Sorry to hear about your failing synths. Don't get rid of the MT-32, it's probably worth something for parts, assuming it can't be cheaply repaired which is possible as well. The Yamaha page still exists at the Wayback Archive: http://web.archive.org/web/20180102071839/http://download. …

Re: What are the *unmissable* MT-32 experiences?

Going back to the original question, these games are Sierra's unmissable experiences in my book (talking music quality, not game quality of course): - Codename: Iceman - Conquests of Camelot - Eco Quest 1 - Heart of China - King's Quest 5 - Laura Bow 1 - Laura Bow 2 - Leisure Suit Larry 3 - Leisure …

Re: Volume reduction on Roland LAPC-I

Yeah, you'll need to send a SysEx file to lower the master volume. Any of the QuestStudios Sierra SysEx files lower the volume from 100 to 80, so those could be a quick and easy way to do it. BTW, Lutz, weren't you on the QuestStudios forums years ago? 😀
