  • "Great work, good job" (by Shinryuu, 30 Aug 2006) [8/10]
    These midis are great, I have been searching for music from M&M IV and V for a very long time. However I must admit that some of the instruments and notes have been changed in a way making some of the midis sound very different from the original ones, and not always for a better. But great work anyway, I liked them very much.

  • "Absolutely excellent" (by PurpleXVI, 5 Jun 2012) [9/10]
    A few tracks sound different from what I remember them, but then again, I only ever played one version of this game, and it's had multiple. Include Mac versions, fully-voiced versions, CD versions and floppy versions.

    So glad I got my hands on Corak's theme again, though, damn I love that thing.

Facts / description

Here is a bunch of music from Swords of Xeen. It's the same as Darkside of Xeen, and since more people probably know about Darkside, I'll call it that :).
To record the music, I just installed the game to play with the Roland Canvas soundcard (general midi), then played in Dosbox, and then recorded the midi commands, making all of the files here.
I edited Town_theme1.mid and Town_theme2.mid with a free program called Midget (www.silverblade.co.uk), simply just changing some of the instruments around.

The Roland Canvas card made things sound a little unusual compared to what most gamers might remember (probably Soundblaster Pro), so I tried
to change the instruments around for the songs that seemed a little "off." After making this archive, I found a way to rip the Soundblaster
music ... unfortunately, that was a little while ago, and the few files that I did re-record in Soundblaster style are on my old computer.
However, if anyone would like the mp3s, just email me (see below).

First Update: Some of the files here are the same as when they were first recorded. Many, however were edited (mainly by changing the instruments around) with two programs- Midget 3.5 and NoteWorthy Composer.
Recent update (Apr 24 2010): Thanks to Greg C for sending me "Corak's Theme/Escape Pod Music", which I missed originally! It's been a couple of years since I made this archive but I'm glad people still enjoy the music and help out :)

If you would like to contact me, feel free to email me at Roychipoqua@yahoo.com.
