Use music module as a midi sound module

I recall that at some point in time (1996?) someone wrote a tool that converted a msx + music module into a midi sound module. It was targeted at people who wanted to create nice synthesized base sounds via midi.
(Doing that was popular back then, you know, like with the tb303.)

Please can someone help me refresh my memory?
What is the name of the software? Is it still available?

Thanks!

No it wasn’t a tracker, just some sliders and knobs to adjust the synth settings.

Not something like Channel Pressure?

That must be it, can’t find it anywhere though.
There is a topic about it too, did you ever get hold of it Manuel?

I've been looking around for it quite a while as well... It seems it never got shared...
In the article about this software in MCCM 85 it is said that the pre-version of it is included on one of the disks that went with it.

The pre-version is named Diablox, and can be found on MCCM disk 85a.

I read the review in MCCM and the one from MCWF, now I really want to play with it.
It would be really nice if someone could make this software available again.
