Has anyone ever looked into this?
It would be very nice to be able to play the 5 "new" (read: ROM 2.x) demo songs (Adjarre, Boiler Buster, Short Demo, Sinfonia 1, and Good Morning) on older units (or even MUNT).
Extracting the data for them (in the second 64K bank) is very easy...working out the format is not. They don't appear to be standard MIDI sequences at all, and I can't work out what the format actually is (or how one would even begin to go about converting them to MID).
I'm not looking to do anything exotic - not even looking to remap channels, since they are native to the device. I'd just like them playable without having to actually go into Demo mode.
There doesn't appear to be any data on the MIDI Out/Thru lines when they are being played, so capturing the stream and going about it that way doesn't appear to be viable, either.
Thoughts/suggestions quite welcomed!
