Munt MT-32 emulator VSTi is a portable VST 2.4 instrument/software MIDI synthesizer for Windows that is based on Munt.
It is primarily developed for my Soundfont MIDI Player to integrate MT-32 support but apart from this it is a full fledged VSTi plugin.
You need the MT-32/CM-64 Control and PCM ROM images to use it. Unfortunately it is not legally allowed to redistribute these files.
But if you do not have the proper ROM files you can try these images.
In the package both x86 and x64 versions are included for different x86/x64 hosts.
Using x86/x64 host bridges are not recommended.
Mt32emu4v.dll has to be copied to the same (VST) directory as MuntVsti.dll.
Supported MIDI events/controllers can be found in Roland's documentation.
Contrary to normal Munt releases x86 version of MuntVsti works even on Win9x.
Since Munt only supports 32000, 48000, and 96000 Hz, you have to set one of these sample rates in the host.
These frequencies correspond the COARSE, ACCURATE, OVERSAMPLED analog output modes in Munt.
Since Munt also uses 32kHz internally for timestamps in order to get the most accurate timings 32kHz is recommended. But 96kHz is still preferred to 48kHz.
From version 2.0 the plugin supports any sample rates through internal resampling but the above written about timings still holds.
- Fast and lightweight.
- Supports 32-bit and emulated 64-bit VST processing.
- Supports 16-bit integer and 32-bit floating point internal rendering of Munt.
- Supports native MT-32/CM-64 compatible MIDI system mode and a special GM mode.
- Built-in Dual Synth setup allows you to get full 16 channel GM mode as well a special 16 channel MT-32 mode.
- Supports all the different reverb and other emulation options that Munt offers.
- Supports 12 parameters for options that are not (or not easily) MIDI controllable.
- Adjustable maximum partials up to 64 per synth.
- Can send midiProgramNames to hosts that support it.
1. Modified status area for displaying SysEx LCD messages and selected ROM information to be a little more emphasized.
2. Fixed RPN (0,0) pitch bend range settings in GM mode to behave according to GM specification (MT-32 devices reset pitch bend range to default when program change message is received but GM devices should not).
3. Modified stereo panning in GM mode to behave according to GM specification. MT-32 and GM panning is reversed if we compare them to each other according to specification. So far you had to manually select the 'Reverse Stereo' checkbox to get proper GM panning. Now selecting 'Reverse Stereo' results in reversed stereo effect in both MT-32 and GM mode and without selecting 'Reverse Stereo' both mode sounds according to specification.
4. New version of mt32emu4v.dll with latest enhancements.
