Re: MIDI 2.0

Crazy stuff, but the MIDI Manufacturer's Association is prototyping a new evolution of the MIDI standard, dubbed MIDI 2.0. https://www.midi.org/articles/the-midi-manufacturers-association-mma-and-the-association-of-music-electronics-industry-amei-announce-midi-2-0tm-prototyping Very neat! I don't e...

Re: Optimizing the sound quality for the MT-32 and SC-8820

What do you mean by "unbalanced"? Professional audio often uses "balanced cables" to reduce interference in the cabling. The interface at each end must support it to get the benefit, though: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balanced_audio Neither the MT-32 or the SC-8820 supports it. So I don't actual...

Re: Optimizing the sound quality for the MT-32 and SC-8820

Andrew probably would have noticed and said so, but it may be that the Instrument Map (set by the front "INST MAP" button on the SC-8820) had previously been set to the SC-55 Map. The way the horn is well-defined on both versions at the 2 second mark makes me doubt it, though. Andrew is probably cor...

Re: Video about MT-32 and video games

Yeah, I saw that recently too, along with his CM-300 cleanup video. He does a great job explaining the MT-32 (although we probably all know parts 6-8 can be edited as well, by holding "MASTER VOLUME" in conjunction with 1-3) and seems to have a large youtube following that hopefully will become as f...

Re: Roland CM-64 tricks

Recently I noticed that Munt 2.3 adds a configuration option to set the number of partials! After trying it out with success, I was curious about how many partials generally overflow in the real hardware. To get meaningful output, I decided to put the CM-64 into overflow assign mode with the unoffic...

Re: Larry 5 and CM-32L

I finally got around to contacting NewRisingSun on vogons, and this was the above-and-beyond response: It's not a question of the driver, but of the 1.PAT resource. It contains 256 bytes of data for the "Setup Temp Area (rhythm part)", address 03 01 00. When Sierra created the data for that file, th...

Re: Roland CM-64 tricks

After posing my question, I began investigation of a way to use the extra SN-U110-07 sounds with the CM-64 (although this applies to the CM-32P as well, I should think). I turned to Dr.T's MT-32 Editor/Librarian and captured some of its SysEx while programming patches to the temporary area. Then I c...

Re: MIDI rips of Konami's 1993 Sharp X68000 game, "Akumajō Dracula" for Roland MT-32/CM-32L/CM-64

You're welcome; I'm glad you like them! They're really just pure captures with a bit of SysEx-slowing to support the original MT-32 and capital-tone fallback remapping to support newer GS modules, so it's fine with me, but I don't think you need my permission.

Re: SC-8850 information

Hey, sorry for the super late reply.. it was Cakewalk Express 8.04. Alright, I finally bought an old Cakewalk Pro Audio 9 and used it to open your 30-channel .wrk file. It worked (within wine 32-bit, on Debian 64-bit, even) and I used it to export a standard midi (type 1) format file. Like Rosegard...

Re: Article: How Sierra and a Disgraced Cop Made the Most Reactionary Game of the 90s

Thanks Marten! It's part of the Police Quest Collection, but not an installment I'll likely be playing. It parallels the present, but that's history I was woefully unaware of.
