It has been a long road to find this combination but it is the best I've come up for my DX4 system:
Then there is another limitation as well. Most early General Midi games are hardcoded to port 330 and that is used by the Roland MPU401AT + McCake combo. So I have to use McCake for General Midi for some games. That is not a big problem since McCake is excellent for that as well but If you want the Roland GM/GS sounds then it is a problem. I should be able to fix it with software (port trapping) and I could also plug external Roland module to MPU401AT but I want this system to have everything internally.
Maybe you could put your wavetable module into an external MIDI enclosure (Chill or similar), then get a MIDI switcher/patchbay to choose which MIDI device gets its stuff from the MPU-401. WIth a real MPU-401, an MPU-105 would be the obvious (if hard to find) choice.
Oh damn so is the 104 the wrong choice then? , I've seen LGR use it with his midi tower and it seemed okay.
I guess I got the input to output mixed up then , dang.
