My favorite tunes to compare OPL2 emus and cards are a couple of DMX ones:

Heretic E1M5
Doom E2M2

these two usually expose percussion, distortion, and channel limits, and they're much much much worse on every imitation hardware i've heard.

Here is prince of persia FLAC recorded from Sound Blaster 16 CT1740 (YMF262-M):
vs the nuked emu: :happy:

There is some horribe and rather loud distortion between 0:35 and 0:38 in the nuked recording which is not present in the YMF262 file. I have the same distortion in that moment no matter what emulation I use. I suspect it has something to do with resampling, but I'm not sure. Also I might be imagining things, but to me YMF262's highs sound softer, while nuked sounds too sharp on highs. For example, compare 1:20 - 1:30. And again there is some distortion at 1:24 - 1:28, which is not present in YMF262 recording.
