> 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.
>
> REQUIREMENTS
>
> * MS-DOS 6.0 or later. SoftMPU will not work from within Windows
> * EMM386 must be loaded
> * Sound Blaster (or compatible) sound card with an MPU-401 interface
> supporting UART mode (e.g. Sound Blaster 16/AWE, Yamaha YMF71x)
> * Roland LA synth (e.g. MT-32, CM-32L) or a sound card with MT-32
> emulation
