Today I have released version 1.0 of the Touché: The Adventures of the Fifth Musketeer soundtrack as part of my ScummVM Music Enhancement Project.
A big thank you for the countless emails and tweets I have had about this particular release and of course to the ScummVM team for implementing the external audio files I have created – allowing my enhancements to be released for your enjoyment. Also to the original game music composer Ben Daglish for his excellent work within the game.
Using pure digital recording methods and Yamaha workstations, it is my personal aim to increase the quality of the music, however still remaining true to the originals. Using ScummVM, to which I will be aiming the tracks to be used for exclusively, we will all be able to enjoy the game music all over again with hopefully a far superior sound quality.

To install, extract the music from the zip file and copy it to the ‘Touche’ folder on your hard drive. Make sure you have version 1.6.0. (or later) of the ScummVM software when released, or the latest daily build. For best quality (although not mandatory), start the ScummVM program and select ‘Touché: The Adventures of the Fifth Musketeer’. Now select [Edit Game], switch to Audio tab, tick the ‘Overide Global Audio Settings’ and set Sample Rate to 44kHz.
