OPL3/OPN2 synthesizer using ADLMIDI and OPNMIDI
- adljack is the version for the Jack audio system.
- adlrt is the portable version for Linux, Windows and Mac.
- Real time, low latency FM synthesizer
- Support of multiple FM chip emulators
- Support of multiple chips for extended polyphony
- Loading instrument banks in WOPL and WOPN formats
- General MIDI level 1 and 2
- Multi-channel MIDI playback
- Automatic bank reloading when the file changes on disk
- User interface for the terminal with dynamic controls
- Session management with the NSM protocol (adljack only)
This is how you use adljack in the console.

- -p [player]: Selects the player. (ADLMIDI, OPNMIDI)
- -n [chips]: Defines the number of chips.
- -b [bank]: Loads the indicated bank file.
- -e [emulator]: Selects the emulator. (by number, as listed in -h)
- -L [latency]: (adlrt only) Defines the audio latency. The unit is milliseconds. Default 20ms.

Why are the colors odd-looking in a X11 terminal?
The default terminal setting may prevent the program from being able to define its own colors.
In the initialization of your shell, try setting a 256-color terminal type:
test "$TERM" = "xterm" && export TERM=xterm-256color
