midi performance

(Review for UFO: Enemy Unknown: Game rip by lilo)

I am a bit disappointed from the midi, but still glad I got it. Many sounds are too much different from the original game one. Examples:

Tactical Section - volume of the bruum, bruuum is way too much over the original, also the instruments sound weird.

Compared to the original - it tries to sound like playing real instruments instead of pure synthetics in which it sounded much better.

The intercept, for example has problem with timing when playing in winamp. When playing from beginning, there is a lower note and then the classic intercept tune. The first sound is not played when you rewind the track. Also, the original synthetic sounded a bit more impactful.

How to restore music with original synthetizers of those days?

Not sure, but I feel that there were few more notes in the Story tune in the beginning. Alse my version seemed to alternate after a couple of minutes. (or it was only in the geoscape only?)

But otherwise I am happy I found it on the net.
