After running INSTALL from the SBBASIC drivers, the installation program will ask you for the location of these CTCM drivers.
Sound Bank files for the AWE supporting Sound Cards

Note that the MT-32 emulation is only compatible with the standard MT-32 instruments, like The Secret of Monkey Island. it doesn't support complex MT-32 implementations like Wing Commander or Space Quest III.
