Very cool site, very glad I found it!
I've got a question and would like to hear from all, especially anyone with experience. I am reviving and old project, a hacked I-Opener running W98SE. Hardware-AMD K6 ][+ @ 400MHz, 256K ram, 8G HDD. I had hacked it >10 years ago, but it hasn't been used for a long time. Recently I've been trying to set it up as a chiptune workstation
This system is very much like a laptop in that you can't change too much of the hardware, SoundMax AC97 integrated. Sooo, I'm looking into midi options. So far I think my options are:
Parallel or Serial port midi interfaces, I.E. Midiman PC/S or such with manufacture's drivers
USB midi interfaces, M-Audio Midisport, manufacture's drivers for W98.
There are allot of new USB devices, but they rely on USB Audio Class compliant drivers, which are missing in Win98. Does anyone know if there is anyway to patch 98 to support this? I have applied nusb311 to great success for mass storage, but it doesn't enhance USB audio/midi. Anyone know of a way?
