Awedrv is the sound driver extension to USS-Lite (aka VoxWare) for AWE32
wave synthesizer card by CreativeLabs. This driver provides a basic way to
control Emu8000 chip on AWE32 board through /dev/sequencer and
/dev/sequencer2 devices as well as other synth drivers like FM-OPL3 and GUS
wave drivers. In this sense, this is not exactly a midi driver, but you can
play midi files using some midi players supporting the awedrv listed below.

The current driver is distributed both as a lowlevel driver to
USSLite-3.5.4c with Linux 2.0.x kernel and a patch to VoxWare 3.0.x with
Linux 1.2.x kernel or FreeBSD. Both environments are confirmed to work fine.
However a little attention is necessary to use this driver on PnP cards. See
Q1.4 for installation on PnP cards.

The programs supporting awedrv are:

   * MIDI sequencers
        o drvmidi sample MIDI player program (awemidi-0.x.x.tar)
        o playmidi with a patch file (playmidi-2.3+awe.diff)
        o Jazz works without any patch (but not perfectly yet)
   * Games
        o DOOM musserver with a patch file (doom-musserver-1.0+awe.diff)
