Re: MT-32 User Memory

Weird! I had no idea. What do you view as the first note on the drum part?

Re: MT-32 User Memory

The MT-32 note isn't F2 however, it's F4. It is usually silent, you're right- it's specially programmed in the EQ1 MT-32 patch bank.

Many Sierra MT-32 games use reverse cymbal on the drumkit, channel 10.

Re: MT-32 User Memory

I'm not sure what the Eco Quest stuff has to do with the OP, but I can say that with ECOED11 'Cetus', Tom did something he commonly did, which was to put the reverse cymbal notes into a separate non-drum channel for GM (usually channel 1)- which in MT-32 soundtracks are on the drum channel, and GM d...

Re: Physical Quest Studios CDs and digital preservation

Very cool, this is definitely worthwhile. I have a couple of the files for the interim, like the LSL6 Medley, which Marten sent me ages ago. Not lossless, but beats being absent. Regarding HQTrack16, that was created long before Tom recorded his HQ Soundtrack, hence why it is in MP3 format. Not sure...

Re: Optimizing the sound quality for the MT-32 and SC-8820

I wasn't, I own one of those, but I legitimately thought the 8820 had digital outs :O Now I know different, I had thought that for a decade!! Well there you go. Why oh why would anyone want one of them? The 8850 is complex enough WITH the full front panel, although I admit the 8820 has some sound im...

Re: Optimizing the sound quality for the MT-32 and SC-8820

If the OP is still around, I can give very detailed answers to his/her queries, I just don't want to write that wall o text if they're not :) A big point that is quick to write is that the SC-8820 should be recorded with optical digital cables, not analog cables. One of the major advantages of the 8...

Re: Spammers, Site Updates, Where have I been?

Congrats Andrew! I haven't had kids yet, but I imagine at those ages there is a lot of work involved. Beautiful photo of the family, by the way. You've been doing fine, there isn't really much to say if music isn't being uploaded. Trust me, I know. ;) My website had a new skin, and is being worked o...

Anyone know how to search the old QS forum?

Hey folks,

I just tried using the Wayback Archive, web.archive.org, using www.queststudios.com/forum. I can bring up the search, but when I use it it always errors with "did you forget to search for something?".

Re: QFG2VGA MIDI

Thanks for the response. I'm 99% sure the only possibilities are on an external HD of Tom's, or deleted, but you never know.

I wonder if anyone has a beta copy of QFG2VGA, which probably are digital audio but you never know..
