First post, by Mrdangerous
Hi everyone! I don’t really ever post here, but I do lurk around to absorb some knowledge from time to time. However, I needed to post to try and figure out a strange occurrence, namely with MUNT and its midi recording function.
Recently I’ve been trying to record MT-32 tracks for fun and a bit of curiosity about its musical stylings, so I chose Sam and Max: Hit the Road because I really like the music in that one. To do this I’ve been using Scummvm (2.2.0) setting it up to use MUNT and then recording the track as it plays a Midi. I then use MidiEdit (https://www.midieditor.org/) to take out notes, take out empty parts, etc (though the program seems super temperamental, so maybe you all have a better suggestion). There were some bumps here and there, but for the most part it was going along, and I got some good tracks out of it too!
Then, it suddenly stopped working. No longer was the midi music recording correctly at any time except the Logo sequence.
Loading a save and trying to record a specific track? Nope.
Trying to skip the intro to get to gameplay and THEN record? Nope.
Trying to simply bite the bullet and wait through ALL the intro until I get back to where I need and THEN record? Nope.
Try to use the “reset” button in properties and THEN record? Nope.
No matter what I do, MUNT seems to refuse to correctly create midis anymore. It still records direct wavs just fine but doing that means I’m almost always going to get bleed over with other tracks due to how fast the midis play after each other.
I have no earthly idea what I did to make this program start hating me suddenly, so that’s why I’ve come at my wits end and making this post to ask all of you if I did something dumb.
I made a little MEGA Rar with my settings and music files to help determine what the issue may be. Of the two midis, the one that works is “Logo” and the other which was made after MUNT stopped wanting to work right is “Office after Intro Track (Broken)”. I also added two prior conversions I did, a conversion of the Office track from a non-broken midi and the song for Flint Paper (I didn’t save the good midis since I just wanted the final track at the time, sorry).
Sorry about this is a long post, but I hope I was coherent enough to at least get a conversation going.
PS. I would also like to add in the idea of MUNT fully uninstalling when you use the uninstall program, as it leaves settings files and the like that I was trying to get rid of the get a “cleaner” state again that I simply can’t get rid of or find on my computer.
MEGA Link: (Removed)
Stuff to fulfill guidelines (if the guidelines are for Midi machines only then that’s a doh for me):
Motherboard – ASRock X370 Taichi
