Description

I realize that this quite possible a low priority feature, but I would love to have the possibility to let the music be played by external hardware. Soundfonts are nice, but the music of Doom was originally composed on a Roland Sound Canvas device and it would be a really nice touch to let owners of this hardware experience the music on the real thing.

History

#1 Updated by amanojyakux about 10 years ago

One thing to add. While on other OS it is possible to solve this issue externally (for example on Windows XP using the midi mapper), on current OS X versions there is no way to do this AFAIK. Either the midi data is send OS X coremidi or it is not, using coreaudio the midi files are always being played by the internal soft synth.
