Is it mandatory to adjust the volume to have it working ?
I don't understand why it should be supported, as it is a simple volume control.

If you don't specify the volume it will work with unspecified volume.
The volume setting can be initialized outside the program, which is in fact how I tested the feature.
Needless to say, being able to adjust the volume from within a music player would be "nice to have".

Nice, I see there are still Mod Master users 😀

Hi Freddy
I just download Mod Master XT 2.2 beta 25 and install on my Amstrad PC 2086S with XT-IDE and a 8.4GB Hard Disk. Unfortunately I don't have a Sound Blaster anymore, but a great PC Speaker
I put some Mod File (one was written by me in 1993!) and it works great... up to 12KHz sampling rate!

Thanks for your great job...
can I convert Adlib files to MOD in some way so I can listen too?

Just waiting for your next releases
Thanks again from Italy

Nice,

You can buy any Sound blaster card compatible from ebay, even ESS, or Sound Blaster Vibra16, they are cheap.
I recommend you the Vibra16 as you will be able to play in 16Bit and even faster in 8Bit with low noise.
Use UNISOUND to initialize the cards.

There is no way to convert adlib musics to digital, buy a cheap Vibra16 and you will see what we can do with a 8086.
Like in my Youtube Video there:

With a wavetable board, you can even play MIDI...

Hi,
I've found in a box with some hardware, an ALS100 sound card, it works with my Amstrad! ModMast XT sees it as a Sound Blaster 16, I've configured the software at 22000Hz, 8 bit. Can I push up to 16bit in some way?

Also, a friend will give me a Expert Color MED3700. Is it also compatible with a 8086 and Unisound?

Thanks a lot!

Yes, the ALS100 is compatible SB16, it is working but of course at a lower mix frequency (16KHz for 4 Channels instead of 28KHz)

I asked for an ExpertColor MED3700 too 😉 do you know if I can use on a 8086 and Unisound driver?
