I hooked up my AWM device to my Roland UM-ONE and it's working. Thanks.

Did you try running some games? And how did it sound? :)

Sounded better than the Adlib cards and some of the Sierra games I've bought from GOG.com work with it as well. I also installed the FB01 driver on there to see how it works since some of the games require MIDI channel 1 to be the main one.

I got the real unit today as well and that works with it, too. Even the battery is still good (not bad for a 30+ year old device).

Excellent, so IBM Music Feature Card emulation is now officially a thing in DOSBox :)

MAME just added the Yamaha MU80(non working,) first XG module(1994,) compared to the DB50XG(1995,) 32/64/729/21 vs 16/32/676/21(parts/poly/tones/drums,) and already has the SC-55(non working) ~scc-1, though not the SC-55mkII/scc-1a.

I released a simple music disk for the IBM Music Feature Card at Revision this weekend:

I made sure that my code is compatible with the DOSBox and AMAME setup that I posted a few weeks ago.

Let's say it was fun to hear that IMFC blasting through the huge speakers in the party hall, and hundreds of sceners listening to an IMFC for the first time :)
