Today I have released version 2.0 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 and feedback, who sadly passed away in 2018.

Changes in version 2.0

  • Version 1.0 scrapped and completely reworked for version 2.0
  • FLAC lossless audio version created to go along with the lossy OGG Vorbis edition
  • Created using a modern MIDI compatible Yamaha Tyros 4 keyboard and recorded in pure digital
  • Reduced reverb and effects compared to original release
  • Additional track layers created to enhance the string sections

To improve the quality of the music while staying true to the originals, I utilise pure digital recording methods and Yamaha workstations. My personal aim is to enhance the music’s quality, specifically targeted for use within the ScummVM software. With these enhancements, we can all enjoy the game music once again, hopefully with superior sound quality.
