I've recently had a hankering to play my old games with roland sound systems. I didn't get a chance to when I was young as I couldn't afford it, but now I can it would be nice to finally play my old faves with better audio.
There's one small problem - I know next to nothing about all the different versions and how to output to them on a modern win10 system. I've been doing some googling and have come up with the idea of over time picking up the following:
MT-32 old type
CM-32L (or 64 with clicking bug fix)
SC-55 MkI (for capital tone fallback - are all mkI's guaranteed to have this?)
SC-8820 (should cover everything after SC-55 MkI - is that right?)
Roland UM-ONE mk2 USB MIDI Interface
The hope is I can get programs like dosbox to output to the roland via the UM-ONE. So computer->UM-ONE->roland device->speakers/headphones. Is this correct? Is there any extra equipment/software required that I don't know about?
Also, is an SC-55 really needed if I get an SC-8820? I read some stuff that seemed to suggest CTF wasn't really used in games.
Cheers for any help.
