The following patch adds General Midi software wavetable synthesys to
DosBox' MPU-401 emulation.
It links (when available) with fluidsynth, which is a software synthesizer
available at http://www.fluidsynth.org/
To use it, add entries to dosbox.conf like:
To test it, I dumped the ROM of my old ISA SoundBlaster AWE64 and
made a sound font out of it.
Any other General Midi sound font will do, like "8MBGMSFX.SF2" that is
shipped with SoundBlaster Live! cards.
It is even possible to get an approximate Roland MT-32 emulation using
an MT-32 sound font instead of a General Midi one.
Windows users already have a software wavetable synthesizer shipped
with DirectX (and using a different sound font format).
