Are there PWADs with custom GENMIDI?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tinkered with the GENMIDI lump in vanilla Doom wads to create special effects in the music? Do Chocolate-Doom and ZDoom (through the OPL player) read this lump? I wonder if DOSBox, at all, recognizes this lump.

Yes, both ports read this lump - of course it only makes sense and only gets used with OPL playback and since that couldn't even be taken for granted back in 1993 (think GUS) I have my doubts that it was ever used, aside from optimizing the instrument mapping.
