Hi everyone,

Registered specifically to ask if anyone had the full original game soundtracks of the Gold Box D&D Classics, or knew of a way to extract them.

Cheers :)

Thanks ! And yeah I meant more like mp3/flac recordings. I'm kind of a videogame music archivist and love those old Adlib/MIDI soundtracks.

Fantastic thanks... I wish I have them in separate tracks... Could be useful while GM-ing. Was thinking to get music from Black Isle Games Studios just for that too... On sale now, but... :uh what:

Do you want the original XMI files, the XMI files converted to MIDI, or something else?

Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax — of cabbages — and kings —
And why the sea is boiling hot — and whether pigs have wings."

Ideally MIDI to MP3 conversions. There are many MIDI libraries out there and I wouldn't know which to pick to sound closest to what people had at the time.

But I also love the Adlib FM sounds that used to be played straight from the Adlib Yamaha soundchip in the 80s and early 90s. Those usually need to be recorded straight from the games.

edit: oh wait just looked it up and XMI files are Adlib files ? If there's a way to convert those to MP3 that would be perfect.
