Roland MT-32 / Sound Canvas Help

Post by thefadedone » Fri Mar 01, 2013 5:01 am

Hi, I have a question about my new MT-32. Does the MT-32 properly play "Sound Canvas" audio? I selected Sound Canvas on DOOM, and the music plays, but am I getting the correct sound? Or do I need a SC-55 to properly play Sound Canvas audio?

Thanks!!

The MT-32 is no device from the Sound Canvas series, so it won't play it properly.

Also I am not sure how you found this forum for your problem, we aren't really a forum about old games in general, but only about those working in ScummVM and related games.
