    Default Ad Lib music archive: Get your PC (DOS) game music here!

    Hello, all.

    I use custom hardware (the "Adlib-DigiSnap") to make accurate recordings of DOS game soundtracks, which are then added to my website, the Ad Lib music archive.

    Today, after a long hiatus, 18 [!] new soundtracks were added:

    4D Boxing
    Captain Dynamo
    Chip's Challenge
    Commander Keen 4: Secret of the Oracle
    Elf
    Gods
    Golden Axe
    Home Alone
    Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
    KGB
    Princess Maker 2
    Risky Woods
    Sango Fighter
    Speed Racer in The Challenge of Racer X
    Street Fighter II
    Super Street Fighter II Turbo
    Test Drive III: The Passion
    The First Samurai

    If you love the YM3812 chip as much as I do, this should be pretty nifty for you. I hope y'all enjoy it.
    Whenever new sets are added, I'll share updates.

    Have fun!

    These were fun to listen to. I remember putting my Pro Audio Spectrum board through its paces with the tracks it came with. I couldn't believe the sound that came out of my computer!

    Thanks for the update!

    Gotta love the simplicity and straight-forwardness of that design. A lot of modern design I see with the menu lines and options sometimes makes it more couter-intuitive for me. The website for the place my wife works was designed, and I quote, "for Millenials" with its flash and movement. Dang thing has never worked right nor has content directed properly. I have no idea what the content manager looks like to see how much of a PITA it would be to update.

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I'm glad you're enjoying the music, and thinking of the "good old days" while you listen to it!

    I'm also happy to hear y'all dig on the website design. I write all of my HTML by hand in MS-DOS Editor -- just like I've done since my first website in 1998! -- and my goal is to design something simple yet elegant, that captures the spirit of the subject matter, can load and display QUICKLY even on slow web connections (I suffered with dial-up for far too long and still recall the pain of slow-loading websites), and is compatible with a whole pile of web browsers (new and old).

    Anyway. The music recording + trimming process is fairly involved, but I've got more games in my "to-do" list. So updates will appear... eventually!
