More specifically the DC and Saturn formats are abandonded (since late 2003 according to my sources). I may attempt to jump start them at some point, but I have plenty of other things to keep me busy in the meantime.

I don't think anyone does any synthesis on the Xbox - it's likely all streamed formats.

Also, I'd have to emulate a Pentium 3 at a good clip to play back such a format if it existed. No thanks.

I agree with RB about Xbox stuff being streamed. Most Xbox stuff I've looked at have used wma-like formats for music instead of MIDI/synth music.

Also, having used an Nforce2 motherboard for over a year and a half, I'd say that Soundstorm's MIDI support isn't exactly great. The MS DX soft synth often sounds better, even if you can manage to get Soundstorm to load a good soundfont. It's a great chip for game audio, but not for MIDI.

Yeah, Soundstorm is formidable hardware that never got the drivers it deserves. NV should send the ALSA guys a manual now that it's dead and buried.

I'd like to see that too, but NV doesn't seem the type to give out chip programming details. Especially since it has hardware AC3 encoding, they wouldn't want to get into any license BS with Dolby(even though there are plenty of open source AC3 codec's).

Which Atari? SNDH or SAP? SNDH uses the SC68 engine now, so all your complaints go there :-)
