Re: Roland CM-64 tricks

Thanks a lot Lucas! :) I will get back to you in the coming months, coming to the end of my college semester here. I wasn't wanting to hear incompatibilities, more the higher reverb, and the potential for sound to be different, IIRC. As for SysEx, as time has gone on, I acquired a tool to extract th...

Re: Physical Quest Studios CDs and digital preservation

Can someone who has the LSL6CD please contact me? I'd like a lossless rip of Tom's enhanced version of the digital "Cell Block Love", if indeed it is on the physical CD (maybe it was made available later?).

Re: Creating a mixed sysex + midi .mid file

For what it's worth, I've always used Voyetra Windows sequencers (Tom who made the MIDI files at QuestStudios used Voyetra DOS sequencers). They are easily the best for basic MIDI editing I've found. Very easy to deal with SysEx, you can do what Tom did and embed them into the file, or you can even ...

Re: Roland CM-64 tricks

Thanks Lucas for all your hard work. :) Is there any chance of you doing RWI recordings for some of the other scores, like COTL, Willy, Larry 3 and QFG2? I would really appreciate that. BTW: "At least this soundtrack sets the MASTER VOLUME at 80, and not 100 like many others." That is probably the Q...

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...
