[TFTD][MUSIC] Sound Canvas VA and S-YXG50 music packs
« on: March 18, 2020, 01:07:11 am »
Made a couple of music packs for TFTD.
Those were recorded from TFTD Collector's Edition MIDI files. GMWIN (floppy version Victory music) and GMLOSE (floppy version Game Over music) were captured with DOSBox, since they are absent from Collector's Edition.

One of the packs was recorded with Roland Sound Canvas VA (basically a software version of SC-55), the other with Yamaha S-YXG50 VST plugin. Both sound much better than the built-in Adlib emulator.

I haven't tested them much, so any feedback is welcome.

GMWIN and GMLOSE MIDI files, in case anyone needs them.

which one of the two is better/why did you make two versions?

sounds fantastic by the way.
the Roland Sound Canvas one is about half as loud as the original though (at least in the main menu. don't have any experience with tftd so I'm not sure about anything else, and I needs go to bed now)

Just a matter of taste.

the Roland Sound Canvas one is about half as loud as the original though (at least in the main menu.
Probably because instrument loudness varies depending on the synthesizer. Main menu theme actually does sound quieter than, for example, GMGeo4, and the difference is more noticeable on the Roland.
