Keeping in mind this is a pure dos/3x PC this is one pimped computer!
Your very well covered on the pre GM games with BOTH the MT32 and CM32
Even have AWE covered.
GM is bit lacking without the Roland counterpart though.

but this is me looking very hard for faults, All my retro PC's put together still don't cover as wide midi range as your 1 PC does.
