MIDI hardware support
|Reported by:||(none)||Owned by:||SF/ender|
What about adding support for MIDI hardware (e.g.
MPU-401 interfaces, AWE/SBLive wavetable, ...) via
OSS and ALSA?
This would have three advantages:
- easier to set up than timidity (e.g. SuSE Linux 7.3
does not come with a suitable timidity version, since
the server interface is not compiled in, and it lacks
a complete GM patch set that works with timidity,
since the supplied version does not accept
configurations generated with sf2cfg)
- less CPU overhead (hardware mixing vs. software
- potentially higher quality, depending on the
