Roland SMPU DOS Driver SMPUENA.EXE

Probably the most common driver that people want to download from this page is the driver needed to use a Roland Super MPU (SMPU) card I or II under DOS mode. This driver (SMPUENA.EXE) is a bit hard to find on line, but thanks to Mr. Endre Zibolen we are able to offer a copy of the DOS driver here. Big thanks goes to Endre for his help.
