Re: MT-32 User Memory

I attempted to create a patch in October, 2017 with success, and I've just finished reverse-engineering my process to share it with you. Originally, I found a file by Tom that was very helpful, and saved it to How-To_Manage-Patch-Banks-With-The-MT-32!.txt. It started me in the right direction, so I'...

Qmidiroute patched for some GS use

I bought a D-05 and wanted to experiment with it by playing my usual midi playlist. Sadly, I didn't know of a way to automatically forward certain program numbers to it. For instance, I wanted to send all piano (PC#1-6) to it, while using the SC-8850 for the rest. Qmidiroute can be used, but based o...

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

I don't think that has happened with my any of my modules. These include the MT-32 (old) with the displayed ROM version of 1.07, CM-64, and most recently obtained CM-32L. The CM-64 and CM-32L both report "V 1.02 89/Dec/05" when sent the SysEx "F0 41 10 16 11 7E 00 00 00 00 20 62 F7". Although the ol...

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

I wasn't, I own one of those, but I legitimately thought the 8820 had digital outs :O Now I know different, I had thought that for a decade!! Well there you go. Why oh why would anyone want one of them? The 8850 is complex enough WITH the full front panel, although I admit the 8820 has some sound i...

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

A big point that is quick to write is that the SC-8820 should be recorded with optical digital cables, not analog cables. One of the major advantages of the 8820 is its' digital capabilities. I think you're probably thinking of the SC-D70, which I think you said is basically an SC-8820. I don't see...

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

After the post yesterday, I couldn't help myself and decided to see how defined the difference would be. It turns out to be pretty minor, to my ears, but I also captured screenshots of spectrum analysis and "Loudness Analysis". I used ardour 5 on debian GNU/Linux to do the captures, and captured at ...

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

Sorry to resurrect this for something that probably no one notices or cares about, but I'd forgotten to mention a possible (but hopefully inaudible/pedantic) issue I'd planned to circumvent myself, if recording the MT-32 or CM-64 with intended perfection. That is, the output impedance from those sou...

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

Wow! Thanks for setting up those files!!! I haven't had a chance to try yet - very busy week at work. I can't wait to try this out over the weekend! You're welcome! The files have been helpful to me, and I hope they are for you too. It's a bit clunky to work in DOS, but at least it should allow you...

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

Actually, I think your speed issues are with falcosoft's MIDI player. I had issues like you've described, while testing it, until I enabled the option to wait a bit between each song's playback (at least I think that was my solution). It's annoying Microsoft dropped support for selecting MIDI devic...

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

That's interesting because I don't remember making changes other than culling certain tracks that were repeats between those releases. But I'm very glad you got it working and that you love the sound of these synthesizers as much as me. Yes, being true synthesizers, these modules can be coaxed to m...
