we all know that there isn't the one best single sound card for DOS games. The music for each game was composed with a particular sound device in mind, so if you want the "correct" music, you need the appropriate device. Of course there is a huge number of sound cards/ midi devices etc., but I think most games were intended for a small set of hardware.
For example doom was made with the sound canvas (SC-55) in mind, for monkey island its the MT-32, and for OMF2097 its the Ultrasound.
Does a list exist, what DOS game was inteded to be played with which device, or if this is not known, what device is widely accepted as the optimal solution for the particular game?
And if not: anyone interested to help me create such a library?
