I've found the issue in Dune with music in palace. When it plays for the 1st time after intro the music has wrong instrument near 0:10. Such happens if in intro to press space to change the tune or wait until the intro's end where the tune is changed, and then to press ESC.
To get the palace tune played corrrectly needs to switch to other ingame music and then return to palace screen, such the music restarts and plays as should. For example, being on initial games's location, you may enter to the planet's info screen with a book and sworms by sides, with another music, and then return to palace screen.
AWE64 Dune's record on the site was done with this issue. So more correct CQM example is by Vibra CT4180 there.

Has an Aztech Nova 16 Extra been done? I recently discovered I had one and, wowzors, it has OPL3! Also pretty goddamn clean sound compared to even an AWE64.

Relatedly: Will OSX 10.4 and a Powerbook 1.67 be able to record well? That's... basically my only portable at the moment. I just use an ipad for that sort of thing- but obviously that wouldn't do.

I was recording digital output from the YMF724 in Windows 2000 using Audacity. In order to get a good clip, I disabled PCM. Here are two recordings, provided in WAV format (stereo 44.1khz):

Jill of the Jungle 1 menu: https://soundcloud.com/saxxonpike/jill- ... -on-ymf724
Doom E1M2: https://soundcloud.com/saxxonpike/doom-e1m2-on-ymf724

This card isn't installed in my system anymore, but if more recordings are needed, I could potentially get it set back up.

Is there a new site? All those links are dead.

I would also like to know if there's a new site for this.
If there isn't I am offering to host it for free. I have some webspace and bandwidth that I can throw at this, I hate dropbox links so donating a few $/year for this is no big deal.

*edit* looks like SquallStrife offered the same. a .vogonsdrivers.org subdomain would be wicked for this so he'd probably be the better person to ask. *edit*

Hey guys, sorry about letting this go to abandon. I will look into the issue of the broken links. I should still have all the files and pictures. Thank you for the offers to host files, I will consider it.
