Slightly OT, but the 11th Hour (and 7th Guest for that matter) are General MIDI games, and will NOT sound great on the MT-32. Should sound sub par most of the time! If it sounds OK, it's chance only, the music was composed for GM and I don't believe it was converted for MT-32 playback.

No. 7guest/11hour both support MT-32 natively and both support GM natively without any converts, do you believe or not. And listen this music on original 7th Guest CD2 (it's CD Audio) and compare it to GM SC-55 and to LA MT-32. You'll hear that CD sounds very closely to LA exactly.

Tiido, you know that your motherboard is usable with SBpro/clones and SB16 and it still has a big bugs with AWE, GUS GF1 and with PCI speed. Unfortunately.
Yet fastest trouble-free boards with ISA bus are ASRock ConRoe865 (hw+sw mod), Anovo AIMB-865 (sw+bsel mod), Itox G7S620-N-G (sw+bsel+vcciopll+volt mod). They have issues only with GUS PnP and Goldfinch, other cards work normally. PCI speed is also normal.

All I know is, 7th Guest was composed for GM, and the 7/11 soundtrack CD has SC-55 recordings. George Sanger has talked about it being a GM composition, and regardless of whether it was edited for MT-32 playback or not, it doesn't sound anywhere near as good compared to the native SC version.

Edit: I just went through the entire CD audio track of T7G, and all MIDI recordings are SC-55.

OK, I will listen all 3 variants again. I have SCB-55 and MT-32. If I'll find the CD is closer to GM or LA I'll write it here. Thank you for your mark.

I've listened all 3, SC-55, MT-32 and CD. You're right, CD is recorded from SC-55.

IMHO they sound on MT-32 better than on SC-55, I don't like SC-55's 7thGuest sound compared to MT-32. But CD track from SC-55, yes!
