Default A500 as MIDI module


How can Paula chip be used as as a synth/sampler module controllable by a external MIDI sequencer?
Is there any software which can be used for this task?

Default Re: A500 as MIDI module

You can configure octamed to play sounds in response to incoming midi note on events.

There's also a nice program called MidiIn that I stumbled across on aminet. This is a proper stand-alone MIDI based sample player. It's multitimbral, can handle something like 32 notes at once and plays back 16-bit samples with support for stereo pan, pitch bend and envelopes. It uses AHI for output.
Alas all this comes at a price - you'd need one mean A500 (I suppose an 030/50Mhz might be sufficient) to run it.

I use it on my main A1200 (which has a 68040 and 256MB) and control it via soundstudio running on a more humble 1200D configuration.
This isn't SCSI... This is SATA!!!
I have CDO. It's like OCD except all the letters are in ascending order. The way they should be.
