In this episode we learn how to use the DIV opcode for dividing integer numbers, how to print integer numbers to the screen, as well as how to use a debugger to understand what our program does. In all coding tasks looking for errors and understanding what the program actually does is a key aspect. So a debugger (here we use the Turbo Debugger by Borland) is a very useful tool that every developer should know how to use.

The McCake Roland MT32 Emulator
So you always wanted a Roland MT-32. Even as a kid you saw it in ads, and in the setup programs of games. But it was way to expensive. And today you still will pay upwards of 250 EUR for a working device, which is more than 30 years old. So why not emulate it? There is now a Waveblaster compatible module that will fit on many retro sound cards and which is able to emulate the MT-32 as well as SoundFont based GM and GS compatible synthesizers.
