Title: Re: [hatari-users] Re: [hatari-users] Re: [hatari-users] Question regarding Hatari and MANDALA.PRG

Thank you, Eero, that clears up things. I will try to figure out what there is of MIDI software for Macs of that generation (OS 10.6 Snow Leopard). In the meanwhile if anyone else on this list knows about such software, I'll be happy to hear about it.

Mandala sound output is through MIDI and it seems
to work fine.

You need a MIDI device and configure Hatari to
use it.

I don't have Mac, but like Linux, it might have
some software MIDI synthetizers which you can use
if you don't have real MIDI HW.

Note: Hatari PortMidi code enumerates MIDI devices
at startup, so your MIDI device needs to powered &
connected when Hatari starts, otherwise your
device doesn't show up in Hatari's devices dialog.

PS. Hatari has supported MIDI on Linux since
v0.45, but we got MacOS & Windows MIDI support
(with PortMidi) only for Hatari v2.1 release.

(Hatari devs don't Have Mac or Linux, so support
for those platforms is through 3rd party code
contributions, this includes the MacOS Hatari
