Hi Guys
I use Munt-32 and DOSBox to capture Audio
On Properties I set on:

DAC EMULATION High Quality
RENDER TYPE Float 32 bit

I've a doubt on MAX PARTIALS
I've on 32
I notice if you change the number you have different TUNES

It depends on what you want to achieve: better overall quality or more faithful emulation?
1. If you want more accurate emulation you should leave max partials at 32 since the original hardware also had this amount. You should also disable 32-bit floating point rendering since the original hardware used 16-bit integer and emulation accuracy depends on it.
2. If you want best overall quality you can use as high max partials value as your PC can handle with floating point rendering (floating point rendering is much more demanding). Higher partial values give potentially bigger polyphony (that is less likely that notes are cut/killed when many notes are played simultaneously). But do keep in mind that original tunes expected this 32 partials limitation, so they may sound different than intended.
