    Default Ad Lib music archive v2

    Hello, everyone.

    For some time, I hosted/maintained a website that offered free downloads of Ad Lib music which I, myself had ripped from various PC (DOS) video games. However the music was stored in a special format which required people to actually *have* an Ad Lib compatible sound card (a rarity, these days) or use *gasp* emulation to play back the music. The site eventually closed, because I wanted to offer something that could be more universally accepted and enjoyed.

    Today, that has happened. As of today I am proud to present...
    The Ad Lib music archive v2 @ adlib.oldergames.com

    Each song is recorded using special hardware that connects directly to the YM3812 chip on the Ad Lib sound card, for the absolute highest possible quality. Since the recorded songs are stored in MP3 format, you can enjoy listening to them using your favorite music player -- comfortably reliving the good old days.

    In addition to being a nice, little site that will grow as time allows me to record / edit / process / add new soundtracks, its official opening marks the start of the "OlderGames" internet domain being used, under my ownership, as a free tribute site to various aspects of classic gaming in general.

    Thanks for your attention and interest, everyone. Enjoy the site and have a nice day.

    I absolutely love Ad Lib sound! Bookmarked, and thanks for this! Hope to see Duke Nukem II sometime, pretty sure that used Ad-Lib

    Aw man, I remember my Ad-Lib. I "upgraded" to a Soundblaster Awe32 eventually... but iirc you could run an Ad-Lib in an 8-bit ISA slot, which was probably why I had one

    Great site!

    You're welcome. I'm glad you'll be enjoying it.
    And yes, Duke Nukem II used Ad Lib for its music. Can't guarantee I'll get to that particular set, but nothing is impossible.
