Roland GS to MT-32 Conversion Utility

This is a set of MIDI files that can be used to make a Roland GS device emulate an Roland MT-32 (some better than others). This is similar to the MT-32 to GM MIDI files, only this is GS to MT-32. The Roland GS device in question must contain the original Roland MT-32 tones in order for this to work. There is also a MIDI file to reset the device back to the standard Roland GS settings. This file is a self-extracting Pkzip file.

FYI: Roland GS stands for Roland General Standard, that's an inspiring acronym...

There are a few MIDI files included here that only work with the CM-32L, CM-64 and the LAPC-I. There is also a set of MIDI files to set the Roland "D" series synths (D-5, D-10, D-50 and so on) into GM mode. This is a self-extracting DOS Pkzip file.
