so my soundblaster AWE64 has two modes of doing MIDI... the manpage-proclaimed
"braindead" way, and Wavetable. BUT:
isapnp0: <Creative SB AWE64 PnP, CTL0022, , WaveTable> port 0x620/4 not
Is there any midi through wavetable support for any sound card in NetBSD? From
what I've read, wavetable is supposedly better than the standard way sound cards
If I enable all the possible devices in the kernel for this sound card, I can
actually end up with midi0, midi1, and midi2. none of which work. Even with
pseudo-device sequencer, playing any form of midi does nothing at all, except
hang the process pretty well (I guess until it's done writing to the device), so
even control-C'ing it takes a bit to kill it.
So, is there wavetable support for any card? my brief look through sys/dev/ic
found some references to wavetable, but nothing related to midi using it. If
not, how hard would it be to support it?
If I am vastly misunderstanding wavetable, please correct me ;)
