I am very happy to release my enhanced fanmade soundtrack for you to use within the game, which will give everyone higher quality sounding music and not just those with powerful MIDI equipment.
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.
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. 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.
The ScummVM Music Enhancement project was created by James Woodcock to help enhance the MIDI music of some titles that are compatible with the ScummVM program. Enhanced work by James Woodcock must not be used for profit or hosted elsewhere without express permission from James Woodcock.
The original MIDI files from this classic point and click adventure have been altered and enhanced by James Woodcock with permission, to work with current MIDI devices and further optimised and recorded from the Yamaha Tyros series of keyboards.
These files are for personal use only, not to be used commercially and are not to be distributed without permission from James Woodcock. They are intended for use with the ScummVM software only! Game not included!
IMPORTANT NOTE: My ‘enhancements’ are literally myself enhancing the original MIDI file quality, which is sent through modern MIDI equipment and the result recorded. It is not meant as enhancing the work of the original composer and if anything is a testimony to their wonderful creations!
