Back in the '80s and '90s, supported games sounded a lot better if you had an expensive Roland MIDI card for your PC. Now, it's possible to enjoy nearly the same audio quality through software emulation. We first reported on the munt Roland MT-32 emulator two years ago. The emulator has since been updated to version 1.2, getting even closer to the real thing. Best of all, it's DOSBox compatible. Taewong has posted a custom build of DOSBox that includes the munt 1.2 emulator as well as an OpenGlide patch from gulikoza.
The video below starts off using standard Sound Blaster music and switches to Roland MT-32 around 4:26. The difference is huge. More pre-recorded audio samples are available on YouTube. We have compiled a short list here.
