I also noticed that my SC-55mkII sounded distinctly different compared to my Roland SC-7 when playing back midis from Warcraft II. I've been meaning to make a post about it but had to box them up and never got around to doing it.
It would be interesting it we all band together and put up recordings from out various Sound Canvases, noting their model and firmware versions. This will also help us to determine if there is any variance occurring among units which have identical firmware versions.
A lot of us pride ourselves on obtaining retro hardware for that authentic sound. But had we ever considered that what we're actually hearing, even on the proper hardware, STILL isn't the right because we're got the wrong firmware?? 😒
