DOSBox is a x86 emulator with Tandy/Hercules/CGA/EGA/VGA/SVGA graphics,
sound and DOS. It's been designed to run old DOS games on platforms that
don't support it.
The following legacy sound devices are emulated: PC Speaker, Creative
CMS/Gameblaster, Tandy 3 voice, Adlib, Sound Blaster Pro/16,
Disney Soundsource and a Gravis Ultrasound. MPU-401 is forwarded to
the host.
