Description             : This is a GENMIDI patch for DMX for OPL2-OPL3 FM
                          synthesis. This patch aims to remedy the "weak"
                          default instruments to better match the Roland
                          Sound Canvas, most notably the SC-55 and SC-88. 
  Recommended minimum setup for no note-cuts is
  ZDoom 2.8.1 with MAME OPL2 emulator core, with 
  6 chips emulated.

Known Bugs              : Due to the number of pseudo 4-op voices, certain 
  notes may cut sooner than they would have using 
  the stock patches. Most of Doom and Doom 2 play 
  just fine. Depending on your CPU, there may be
                          skips in the sound due to buffer underrun, as 
                          this patch takes more channels than the stock
May Not Run With        : Recent dev builds of GZDoom have broken OPL
                          support as of this writing.
Tested With             : ZDoom 2.8.1, Chocolate Doom, Vanilla Doom, ADLMidi
