Does anyone happen to know the optical drive I should be looking for a Compaq Armada 7790DMT? All I have is the internal floppy disk and I don't seem to have my zip drives or whatever were used back then :L

Hey, I'm sorry for asking this reeeeal noob question and I don't want to open a thread so I'm writing this here:

I've got my hands on a working Toshiba Tecra 8100.
Even though it's kind of different from the previous model, the Tecra 8000 (at least as I've read online) it rocks some Yamaha DS-XG drivers which seem to be wavetable emulation.

I've also read that "properly configured" DS-XG drivers are working well with adlib tracker and such.
I've tried running adlib tracker on the laptop, it runs well, works and all but I get no audio, so I figured out I didn't configure the stuff I had to.
How do I do the thing? sad does anybody know?

DEAR FELLOW TECRIANS!

I have Tecra 8000 and I am using OPL3-SAX driver.

Hey dudes. I have been making music on real hardware. An IBM PS/2 with a Sound Blaster 16. Here is an example:

It's been really fun but I'd really like to sequence my PS/2 externally using my Atari ST. I can't seem to find a dos program that is intended for using a Sound Blaster PC as a synthesizer. Everything I can find is a tracker that integrates synthesis and tracking or something that can play only a single MIDI channel (1 voice) at a time over MIDI.

Does anyone know of a program that would work for me?

thanks!

Very nice videos smile Will definitely be looking into Audio Sim, looks cool.
As to using DOS PC as synth you might want to check out AdlibTracker II, the G3 ver 2.3.52 build has midi support and I think sort of midi synth mode.

There is Frequency Monster 801, but it's Win98/XP. It's more of a full on synth frontend.

Hello guys, I have the SB16 2740 and a midi/joystick cable with 2 midi cables, OUT and IN.

I can playback sounds from the card in my Casio Privia PX-310 keyboard, but I'd like to play the keyboard and use the SB16 as a synthesizer.

Although I plug the IN from the card in the OUT of the keyboard, I get no sound. What programs should I use? What should I configure?

Thank you.

By the way, I have Win98SE installed.

Like noted above, Freq Monster 801 and AT][, as far as I know.

I have Pentium 2 powered Dell CPi A366XT laptop with NeoMagic NM2200 soundcard (AC97+SB emu?) running W98SE.
There is buzzing noise in Impulse Tracker but it disappears as soon as I start playback.
Anything I could tweak to improve the quality of sound?
