Hi guys, Just letting you know that I've been testing Roland's Sound Canvas app for iOS recently with classic DOSBox/ScummVM games. The subject hasn't been covered much anywhere else online I'd seen, so I thought to mention it here. To work with the setup, I'd bought an iRig MIDI 2 adapter and also got a Roland UM-ONE USB MIDI adapter (which I use with my Roland MT-32). The iRig MIDI 2 is an adapter that allows MIDI signals to work with an iPad or iPhone, and connecting the two allows you to use the iPhone/iPad as an output sound module, in this case the Roland Sound Canvas app. FYI the iRig can also be used with a MIDI keyboard or other music-making software. So, with the UM-ONE setup via USB to the PC and also to the iRig's MIDI IN & OUT, and the PC running ScummVM (with the game's MIDI output set to the UM-ONE), I am able to play classic Sierra and Lucasarts titles which utilised the MT-32 and/or Sound Canvas. I've tested the setup with a few games so far like Laura Bow 2 and Leisure Suit Larry 6 and the results are absolutely amazing! Certainly sounds better than standard GM midi.
