If some of you here have some downtime, I am looking for someone to make some high-quality recordings of the music for a few older games for an archive for my personal friend who composed some of the music. The games were ported to various platforms, so we are trying to get a recording of each version. We understand that emulation is possible, but we are not interested in using emulation, we want a recording made from the original hardware. It would be very expensive and time consuming for us to acquire every single system and learn its operations, especially when some of these soundtracks are incredibly short and some of the systems quite costly. I am monetarily compensate anyone for the time invested.
We can provide images and/or save states for most of these in order to make this as easy as possible without having to play through the entire game.
AppleIIe (three games: 1 minute + 1 minute + 1 minute) (1987, 1988, 1990)
Amiga (two games: 1 minute + 30 minutes) (1990, 1992)
Macintosh OS6(?) (one game: 30 minutes) (1993)
DOS PC-Speaker (three games: 1 minute + 1 minute + 1 minute) (1987, 1988, 1990)
DOS SoundBlaster 1.5 OPL2 (two games: 30 minutes + 90 minutes) (1991, 1991)
MSX (one game: 20 minutes x2) (1989)
Japanese PC-88 (one game: 20 minutes) (1987)
Japanese PC-98 (ask)
Japanese FM-7 (one game: 20 minutes) (1987)
Japanese FM-Towns (ask)
There may be some more in the future, depending on how soon these can be completed.
NOTE: Some older soundcards have the ability to route the PC-Speaker directly back into the soundcard. This is probably the best method.
(If there's a better forum area to post this request, please let me know.)
(Note: Unless, the specific requests are deleted from the main post, do not consider any requests to be fulfilled yet even if someone has responded, as offers do not always come to fruition.)
