Is there anyway in Windows 98 to MUTE only the MIDI of Wavetable Daughter Board without affecting the MIDI sound from the Joystick port?
I have a Aureal Vortex2 with a DB50XG Daughter Board, the card is also connected to a Roland Sound Canvas SC-55mkII. I also have a Roland MX-5 mixer with 4 channels IN and 1 channel OUT to the speakers.
- The sound output (3.5mm jack) of the Aureal Vortex2 card is connected to a Roland MX-5 mixer to one of the sound input channels (i.e: Channel 1)
- The Roland Sound Canvas , is connected to the soundcard through the joystick gameport and outputs sound to another channel (i.e: Channel 2)
- Both Channels are connected to the same speaker set.
sample; when playing DOOM;
I can hear the MIDI music from both the DB50XG Daughter Board and the Roland Sound Canvas. I hear them paying simultaneously
- To hear only the music from the DB50XG Daughter Board I bring down to zero the volume of the Roland Sound Canvas channel (Channel 2 - no volume).
- However to hear only the MIDI from the Roland Sound Canvas channel , I can't just bring down to zero the volume of the DB50XG Daughter Board (Channel 1), because that channel also carries the Sound effects.
In Windows 98, I can mute the MPU-401 option but that mutes both the music from both DB50XG Daughter Board and the Roland Sound Canvas, since they use the same MPU-401 port.
Is there anyway in Windows 98 to MUTE only the MIDI of the DB50XG Daughter Board without affecting the MIDI sound from the Joystick port (Roland Sound Canvas)? Ideally I would like to alternate between hearring only either the MIDI music from the DB50XG Daughter Board or the Roland Sound Canvas without loosing the Sound effects (like shooting)
