    I know NovaLogic's F-22 Lightning II credited OPL2/3 patch sets from the Fat Man on its loading screen; I'll have to see if I can suss out bank files from the big-ass resource lump the demo is packed in...

    Some more info on "Fat Labs Certification": http://www.jososoft.dk/yamaha//pdf/gmlev1.pdf

    No mention of the OPL2/OPL3 stuff, unfortunately. That may have been earlier. There was a The Audio Solution demo disk that contained 127 gmidi patches; I've uploaded it at ftp://ftp.oldskool.org/pub/misc/Soft...s/TAS_DEMO.ZIP but there might not be a decent way to extract them. Contacting George Sanger might be the most direct way.

    Well I've fixed some issues and added some new features so I give you Adlib Host V1.1!

    I've put a download page on my site here: https://chuckjonesdevblog.wordpress....l-midi-module/

    - added SBMIDI support (tested on SB16, hopefully somebody with a an older card can test too)
    - added command line switches: -mpu401 and -sbmidi to force midi input, although sbmidi will autodetect
    - added surround sound support for use with TexElec ReSound OPL3 (front/back pan on midi CC 17)
    - fixed a bug which caused hanging notes when used with some sequencers

    Man, now I really need to get an SB breakout box to test with the Sound Blaster (original? 2.0? Can't remember) in my Tandy. Wonder if the breakout box for the GUS is compatible...

    Pretty sure it is, because I've used my SB Pro 2's MIDI cable on my GUS MAX. I assume it would also work the other way around.

    Just figured I'd let y'all know I just made an update to the software to add pitch bends and some other things. Now on version 1.2. download link
