OPL3 sound demonstration

Here are some audio examples recorded from Adlib Tracker II in action! The soundcard used in these examples is a Creative Labs Soundblaster 16 PnP at work, sampled using an M-Audio Delta-44 soundcard. It was then normalized, mastered and finally encoded to MP3 (LAME version 3.90.3 MMX using alt_preset_standard quality). Some of the tracks are in mono as they don't contain any stereo information. The right column describes where to find the songs in the modules-folder.

Audio Examples
Benjamin Gerardin - High Tech Environment III ben\fm36b2.a2m
An arcade-like tune with a great melody. FM-music as we like it!
Benjamin Gerardin - Unnamed ben\fm63b_rv.a2m
subz3ro's favourite tune and thus remastered by himself.
Brendan Bailey - A Different Kind Of Hero brendan\newfil38.a2m
Another arcade-like tune showing the legacy of FM as gamemusic, signed "Pinball Brendan". ;-)
Encore - Computer World encore\1_cworld.a2m
An experiment questioning whether Kraftwerk can be covered authentically on the OPL3-chip.

Fresh for 2006! Lots of macros used to create the C64:ish sounds.
