If I compare Phil's excellent recording of Gateway 2: Homeworld on actual hardware:
to my attached recording on my actual MT-32 (old type), but via DOSBox, it seems mine is playing a bit too slow, most noticeable on the timpani rolls. Phil's recording sounds 'right' to me, and is how I remember it from childhood.
I know cycle settings among others have an effect on this, but as of yet I have not been able to get it 'right' (just this, or completely broken). Does anyone know what's going on here?
PS - Eric the Unready (same engine) seems 'off' to me in the same way, but I have no actual hardware recording to compare with, just one video I found that sounds exactly the same as mine, but could very well have been recorded on DOSBox as well.
