I notice if you Add a little Output gain the volume will increase in Db

Right, but being stick with the default gain makes sense if you prefer to avoid occasional overdrives. The default gain factors are intended to replicate the digital output as close as possible compared to the output captured from a hardware unit.

"Occasional Overdrives"What do you mean?
Default GAIN is a notch to the left how I set it up
The real Unit is digital path emulation only?i set to analogue path only

The default output gain is unity. The max value is 4.0 (when using that dialog box of course). When set to unity, the output produced by the synth engine has the same amplitude as it was at the DAC entrance of a hardware unit mixed. Many games (tunes) intentionally keep the volume low to avoid nasty overdrives MT-32 is famous for. Obviously, we don't emulate those cracklings caused by overdrives in the "High quality" mode, but this is nevertheless a distortion of the signal. In some use cases this is unacceptable, yet this may be audible with a good ear 😀

I got AudIo .WAV from The Secret of Monkey Island OST by Munt 32
I'm listening to with My Sennheiser HD518
Munt was set to
The output Gain default
Accurate analogue path emulation
integer 16 bit
Could I ask you to listen to the Audio File?
I noticed defects..
Can i send you by Wetrnsfer or maybe dropbox

i'm using Foobar 2000
Background Noise in the first 10/12 seconds
Have you notice?why?
my headphones are 50 ohm impedence

When it comes to analysing MIDI musical scores, an obvious solution is to look at the MIDI commands the game sends. If you capture MIDI file instead, it will be easy to analyse in a MIDI editor and identify the offending timbre that might be playing incorrectly in the emulation.

I need to listen the real Mt-32 intro...could you please recording?
I see this comparison...The background noise are in Original MT32 too..what do you think?
All of the other videos which claim to be recorded from a real MT-32 exhibit the same sound (background noise in the first 10/12 seconds)

I bet this is how panpipes are supposed to sound at that frequency. Note MT-32 was by far not a perfect thing back then 😀

what do you think about a good price to purchase real mt 32?i notice CM-32L is cheaper..
Reply 15 of 26, by sergm
Hmm, I never thought about buying one. I have had RA-50 (which is still partially working though) and CM-64, both acquired as a donation 😜
If you like, I can take a capture with CM-64, exactly the channel 2 solo (where the panpipes are set).

yeah thanks man

Thank you, it is a good chance to put out the dust from that thing 😁
Reply 18 of 26, by sergm
Hmm, apparently it's not so easy to connect that thing to a laptop 😒
But this is a certainly good chance to reveal and work around 😀
