1. Purpose

This program plays MIDI files and converts MIDI files to S3M format. It works in Linux and perhaps in MS-DOS too.

1.1. MIDI-player

Play standard MIDI (and RMI) files using OPL3 or OSS MIDI (MPU-401 in DOS).
If you have a Sound Blaster compatible, this program might in some cases be a better choice than TiMiDity. At least if you like the "AdLib" sound :)

1.2. Converter

Converts MIDI files to MidiS3M format.
MidiS3M is a S3M format extension that adds information to instruments so that they can be played with a MIDI device.

1.3. Compatibility

It works in Linux.
Problems you may experience:
  • Too slow playing if your system has heavy load
  • No OPL2 support if your installation was non-SUID

2. History

These source files, their structure and/or compatibility does not represent my programming skills today. This program has been written during many years, without first a slightest idea of porting to Linux or any other sys than DOS. So, DOS program this is. Was. Originally. And is still. The DOS -specific sources are not here, however. They are somewhere on my pages.
If you have questions or suggestions, talk to me.
