I strongly advise that you upgrade to this version, especially if you thought
that there was anything strange about the sound before.
Sound output was being unnecessarily limited.
I would also try using the -A1 or -A2 flag to sfxload, to see
if that sounds better.
Added modulation wheel, reverb and equalization are set at startup.
Drumkit support improved.
Bug in panning fixed.
Big reorganization of the interface.
The driver now appears as four ports on one kernel client.
This gives you 64 midi channels (the hardware gives you
less than 30 voices at once though).
Routines to connect drivers that use sequencer events, rather than raw midi,
The MIDI emulation is separated out so that
other drivers could use it.
Sustain is added and so now the most common controls are implemented.
The framework is there to quickly add the rest.
Fixes problem that controls should affect all notes and voices
belonging to the affected channel.
of the patch allows a soundfont to be loaded.
Now that the is a playmidi available the subscribing to MIDI-in is now
Fix to implement the
case where instruments have multiple samples.
The affected midi files now sound much better.
Pitch bend range now defaults to 2 semi-tones.
Drums will now work, as long as they are on midi channel 10.
