Hi all FM & Midifreaks, this is my first post here, sorry for my impossible english !
I'im writing at the moment a large post for the Vogons Forum 😉
but back to topic:
yes, the LDS System is interesting and sounds very well, i didn't play a DOS Game like Tyrian with LDS Songs
I have several German PC Games Magazines CD ROMs from about 1996 until over 2000 and in every PC Game Issue there was backround music in LDS Format, unfortunately i cant rip the orginal LDS File from "menu - programm" which played in the menu.
certainly / indeed, i recorded already some songs with my ESS Audiodrive ES1869F, from German PC Games and this Songs i want to share with you all
In future i will soon record more Songs from German Pc Game CD Roms, alltogether i have about over 6 Pc Game Issue
Who interested in it / that you can look to this thread on Soundshock. where i have written already a post to this topic, my Nick there is "Matthias"
The shown links to the Records are outdated

additional i give you the menu programm which found on the german pc games CD Rom, here could experts among yourselves to try rip the original LDS File from menu, there is a chance to find the LDS File in the menu.exe, MENUE.HA, MENUE.MS, the Theme Song i think is hidden in the intro.exe, the End little End Theme Song in the End.exe, but i don't know how i can compiled Files to decompress
And here some other FM records (no emulation)
This song i found in the menü of DOS Game Sword of Honuor (Demoversion) known also on Commodore Amiga
i don't know the orginal Format (see the link above) http://soundshock.se/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3 … highlight=games
in any case a nice sounding FM Song written by the hero Thomas Detert
It stumbling a little bit but it doesn't matter

And here last but least some catchy XMI Songs, played by AIL Miles Driver via xmiplay.exe
This Songs shows the possiblities of very well midisequenced songs and the use of supherb soundings FM Timbre for a crystal clear FM midi file playback
this Songs recorded Songs of altogether 36, i have taken again from Demo CD Roms about 1996 until 1998, the orginal game titel from i have taken this XMI captures, I can't remember, maybe / perhaps you?
The Delay at the end of Track11 isn't orginal, its a effect on my part. 😉
