I have now aquired a Roland Sound Canvas SC-33 as well as a Quickshot Squadron Commander QS-202! High Resolution pictures can be found here
This is how I have the two Roland modules set up:
The Midi goes into the MT-32 and a cable takes the Midi from it's Midi thru to the SC-33.
The cable on the left of the unit goes to the line-in on the Terratex Meastro 32/96 soundcard.
Thanks to the cable coupler I can switch the output cables from the MT-32 and the SC-33 within a few seconds to use the device best suited for each game.
I really like the sound from the SC-33 but hey, that's to be expected!
This is what the whole setup looks like:
You might notice that I have switched the speakers. The other ones have a problem with the left speaker. I have to see if I can repair them.
These used to have a problem as well but I soldered a new cable and they work perfectly now. I'm probably going to keep these since they sound better.
One thing I'm not sure about anymore in this build is the soundcard.
The Terratec Maestro 32/96 is a fantastic "jack of all trades", since it has a good OPL3 clone and high-quality onboard Midi.
However, since I now have the SC-33 the biggest selling point for me, the onboard Midi, is moot.
There are also a few slight problems with the card. The DOS mixer doesn't always keep the settings and the DOS driver is quite big compared to say a Soundblaster 16.
I'm likely going to change out the card for the CT 1740 SB16 with DSP 4.05 (hanging note free) from my "Strix" Pentium build. I'm probably going to put a CT2230 (type 2 hanging note bug only) in that instead.
Here are some short camera recordings of the SC-33 in action:

Now, the Quickshot Squadron Commander is functioning and in great physical condition. However, it didn't come with any drivers or the manual. I found the correct driver online but I can't find the manual.
Thus I have been unable to correctly use the device. If anybody has the manual, I'd greatly appreciate it if you could send me a pdf or even some crappy phone pics as long as I can read it.
Well, that's all for now, I hope you enjoyed it!
