#8125 closed patch

MT-32 instrument definitions

Description

Here is some entries for the MT-32 custom instrument
translation table. These seem to be the ones most used
in monkey2.
I had to make one slight change to the mt32-gm table as
well in order to use GM instrument 95 (Sweep pad) for
Swell 1 and Swell 2

Committed (imuse.cpp v1.80). I've also added in the complete
list of Roland instrument definitions that I extracted from the
MI2 and FOA resource files. Chuzwuzza, this should serve as
a useful guide for how complete the mapping is as you go
along. (Sorry, I didn't record exactly where in the game each
one occurs.)

I'm going to leave this patch open until our MI2
implementation, at least, is fairly complete.

Thanks for all your work in building this database,
Chuzwuzza! Would you like to tackle FOA once MI2 is well in
hand? ;)

I'll get to doing some more mappings once all my assignments
and exams are done :P

Too much work in the next week and a bit. After that though,
3 months of nothing! Monkey2, FOA, here I come!

Is there a particular reason this tracker item is still open?

comment:4 Changed 17 years ago by SF/jamieson630

This is still open because Chuzz hasn't finished the
instrument mapping. He can open a new patch each time he
gets a few more instruments mapped, but it seems more
convenient that he just add them in here.

As I said in a previous post, I'd like to at least have all the MI2
instruments mapped before closing this one. FOA
instruments are a much larger bear and warrant their own
patch.

Sorry about not submitting any more instruments :/
I was sidetracked with exams, then I just sort of forgot
about it...

Anyway, after tomorrow I will have some time to do some more

Hmm. Is there much point keeping this open anymore? The
majority of all the 'musical' mt-32 instruments are now
mapped. All that remains are the sound effects. Jaimieson:
Is there a way we can use the GS sound effects for this?

Closing. Great job on the mapping, Chuzz. Regarding sound
effect patches, I don't see GS banks as an option, as support
is not guaranteed. (I finally got around to testing my own
chipset, and it does not support GS banks.) The solution I
would favor is a mapping from Roland to Adlib instrument
definitions, in anticipation of eventually running Adlib and GM
drivers simultaneously.
