musserv - music server for lxdoom and related games
musserv [options] [MUSfile [FM-patch file]]
musserv is the music-playing server used by lxdoom for music output.
It is not likely of any use to the average end-user, except for in
conjunction with lxdoom.
-l Will list all synth devices reported by the OSS drivers (which
should be the same as reported by /proc/sound or /dev/sndstat)
-f Forces the use of FM-synth even if an AWE32 is detected.
-a Only use the AWE synth. Not necessary, should be autodetected.
-m Use a generic (by default the last found) midi synth device
-u specify a device number for the synth or midi device to use.
Necessary if there is more that one device for a given synth
type (fm, awe, or midi). This is usually required for midi
devices. Look at the output of "musserv -l" for the number to
-v Verbose. Musserver is usually silent. This turns on output.
-h Gives terse usage information.
-1 For FM-synth, do not use the secondary voice of double-voice
channels. Instruments will sound poorer, but there should be
less dropped notes. Musserv auto-tunes depending on your card,
so this option shouldn’t be necessary, unless you want to hear
it just like in the old days ;-)
-2 For FM-synth, force the use of the secondary voice, even on
soundcards with limited voices. Can cause a great deal of note-
droppage on these cards.
-B Don’t increase pitch by an octave when doing FM. Only for
really old voxware drivers (950728).
-D Causes all songs + the FM-patch info to be dumped to files.
