play more than 4 voices ?

i don't know if it's possible...
But i ask, who knows ?
Could it be possible for winuae to cheats a little i mean :
When a game like turrican or others play sound fx often it uses 1 or 2 voices and for doing that stop playing music throught theses voices, could it be possible for winuae to keep playing the music with 4 voices from the memory and add 1 or 2 voices for sfx ????
Perhaps it's impossible ?? i really don't know ...

Doesn't sound technically possible.

It is the actual 68000 game code which chooses to send SFX to the Paula instead of the music. It is not a hardware function.

Because each game has a unique sound player routine you would have to patch each game.

Not practical.

turrican 2 and 3 are not a problem uses 7 voice technology invented by themselves,there is a good mix of music+sfx

problem are other titles like the the game Creatures where music is muted by soundfx in a ugly way
I don't think there is a possible solution for winuae because paula is hooked with cpu

idem for Mame emulator , some arcade games suffer from sound interruptions/lack of audio channels ,for example in the game ghost'n goblins when the hero takes a object the music is muted totally
years ago a similar proposal was made to Mame team to fix those issues but they said is not possible

Actually it was invented by Jochen Hippel and used under license/permission having previously been used in Amberstar and Lethal Xcess.

Which I believe is why his name is on the credits of Turrican 3 even though he didn't work on it.
