> WHAT IS IT?
>
> SoftMPU is a DOS TSR that emulates an 'intelligent mode' hardware MPU-401
> interface. It's designed to work in tandem with the MPU interface found on
> the Sound Blaster 16 and other common sound cards.
>
> WHY'S THIS USEFUL?
>
> Games from the late 80s and early 90s that support music via the Roland MT-
> 32/CM-32L often expect to find a hardware MPU interface that supports
> 'intelligent mode'. These are now expensive and difficult to find.
>
> By supporting the 'intelligent mode' features in software, these games will > work with the basic MPU interface found on sound cards.
>
