Hello, all.

I use custom hardware (the "Adlib-DigiSnap") to make accurate recordings of DOS game soundtracks, which are then added to my website, the Ad Lib music archive.

Today, after a long hiatus, 18 [!] new soundtracks were added:

4D Boxing
Captain Dynamo
Chip's Challenge
Commander Keen 4: Secret of the Oracle
Golden Axe
Home Alone
Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
Princess Maker 2
Risky Woods
Sango Fighter
Speed Racer in The Challenge of Racer X
Street Fighter II
Super Street Fighter II Turbo
Test Drive III: The Passion
The First Samurai

If you love the YM3812 chip as much as I do, this should be pretty nifty for you. I hope y'all enjoy it.
Whenever new sets are added, I'll share updates.

Have fun!

Well, in most cases the soundtrack was composed primarily for General Midi, so the FM rendition was inherently worse.
There are, however, soundtracks designed especially for FM, sometimes really impressive, see eg. SkyRoads - http://www.bluemoon.ee/history/skyroads/music/index.html
