    General MIDI with Toshiba Libretto

    I not only found a solution but it turns out even better than I could have imagined! I'm posting here just in case if anyone else ends up in a similar situation. Although this post begins by stating that I'd be happy with the default Windows General MIDI sounds, ideally I'd be able to modify...

    General MIDI with Toshiba Libretto

    I'll take a look at the MIDI Mapper settings -- I was unaware there was something like that built into Windows. I've got a USB MIDI interface (MIDIMan 1x1) and have been sending MIDI signals to it from my DAW (reaper) on a modern computer. I've got a keyboard connected to the modern computer...

    General MIDI with Toshiba Libretto

    My end goal is to control my laptop's OPL3 soundchip to make general MIDI sounds in Cakewalk (or other comparable tool) via midi input from a keyboard/DAW. I am running Windows 98 on a Toshiba Libretto 110CT with 64MB RAM. I can successfully map MIDI input to these general MIDI instruments...

    Midiman Portman via Toshiba Libretto 110CT parallel port?

    That makes a lot of sense! I recently got a USB Midi device working in Windows 98 on the Libretto and would love to use the general MIDI set of sounds with basic parameters in lieu of the greater control that Adlib Tracker II gives. I'll start a new thread with the questions that have now...

    Midiman Portman via Toshiba Libretto 110CT parallel port?

    If it comes down to writing my own software then so be it. A faster route I guess would just be to modify the laptop and solder MIDI breakouts directly to the OPL3 chip. I see the specific adapter that I'm attempting to use mentioned a lot in an old Chiptune forum but, unfortunately I'm unable...

    Midiman Portman via Toshiba Libretto 110CT parallel port?

    After reading a bit more, my gut feeling is now that this parallel port MIDI interface isn't going to work with this old laptop since the BIOS lacks support for EPP mode. GiGaBiTe, you're right that Adlibtracker is expecting an MPU-401 device and unless I solder breakouts to the OPL3 directly...

    Midiman Portman via Toshiba Libretto 110CT parallel port?

    The specific software is not important. I only picked Adlibtracker II because there is an old version which DOES have MIDI support. Do you have a suggestion for some other software which would allow me to control the OPL3 via MIDI? All I care about is note-on events and being able to create...

    Midiman Portman via Toshiba Libretto 110CT parallel port?

    I've been trying to get an old Midiman Portman 2x4 midi interface working with my Toshiba Libretto 110CT laptop. My end goal is to control my laptop's OPL3 soundchip in Adlibtracker II (or other comparable tool to control FM synthesis) via midi input from a keyboard/DAW. The current...

    WTB: RAM module for Toshiba Libretto 100CT

    Hi everyone, I'm looking for either a 32MB Toshiba Libretto RAM module (PA2059U) or a 64MB Toshiba Portege 3010 RAM module (which can be modified to work in a Libretto). This little machine (the Libretto) is pretty great but some extra RAM would be really nice -- however, I can't seem to find...
