MT32-pi works on MiSTer but what about Windows?

Unread post by heinzgruber »

hi,
i'm using a raspberry pi 3 with MT32-pi and with MiSTer it works flawlessly.

I wonder if i can use it with a Windows 10 too für ScummVM (with the real Roland MT-32 option) or as a MIDI Synthesizer with a MIDI/USB-adapter . For testing i setup a news sd card without the MiSTer configurations. But when i plug it in the USB port of my pc nothing happens. Is it even possible or only with very old DOS-PCs?

Thanks

I suspect that you may have missed a step somewhere

My mt32pi has a midi input.
I did connected a joystick to midi cable to my 2000s PC. And it works flawlessly.

I guess newer PCs won't be a benefit from using built-in One, as mt32pi is already an emulator?

I use my MT32-pi thru wifi networks with my mac and the built-in network midi setup. I found some third-party options for Windows but I haven't tried myself.
