I did not find this issue easily online, so thought to post it here.
WC1 and WC2 from Origin Systems give incorrect sound effects when you use a CM32L or LAPC1. This is for instance noticeable during the WC1 intro where instead of laser sounds you get a bell sound instead.
Solution for MUNT is to ensure your using the MT-32 ROMs, and not the CM32L or LAPC1 ROMs.
In case of Dosbox with integrated Munt (MT32) support, you should not put the MT32 and CM32L ROM's in the same directory, as DOSbox will only use the CM32L ROMs in that case.
Solution is to put the MT32 and CM32L ROMs in separate directories, and point DOSbox to the appropriate directory.
Recent DOSBox ECE and DOSBox-X (new version should be out in a few days) versions have support for setting the mt32 ROM directory using the mt32.romdir option in the config file. So your game specific config file should have something like this:
While for a game that can benefit of the additional CM32L sounds (i.e. Lure of the Temptress) you would set it so something like this:
