I'm very interested in getting a Roland MT-32 for use with DosBOX so that I can play some of the Sierra games with that great music. My question is how to best set-up everything since I'm using a laptop which doesn't have any of the usual soundcard outputs.
Will using the Yamaha USB MIDI device work in sending the MIDI files out to the MT-32? Then, can I hook the MT-32 directly up to a set of computer speakers? (Provided I use an RCA-to-Mini Jack cable)
I appreciate any help you all can give me on this. I don't want to spend the money on the USB MIDI connector if the whole set-up is not going to work.
I have the Yamaha USB to MIDI adapter, and it works flawlessly with my MT-32. My soundcard is the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook, which requires a PCM-CIA slot, connected to Klipsch ProMedia speakers. Sound quality is excellent, though I would get an M-Audio firewire Pro card if I was seriously into music production.
