Sierra Soundtrack Classics

These digital song files are the highest quality obtainable from the original source material. In some cases, only monophonic recordings of digital soundtracks were available, and those at only 22 kHz. You'll also find many original MIDI sequences, encoded at various bitrates, recorded directly from the Roland MT-32 Sound Module and/or Roland Sound Canvas.

  • Rise Of The Dragon
    "Introduction" by Dan Latarski and Christopher Stevens. The music in this game just never caught on with me, but nonetheless...here's the Introduction as performed on the Roland MT-32.
  • Sierra Web Team
    "Squirrel With The Power"  The Sierra Web Team often had a good time poking fun at their various Sierra creations. 'Squirrel' is a pumped-up remake of the famed, KQ6 "Girl In The Tower" theme.
  • Silpheed
    Original Soundtrack
    "Main Title Theme" by Game Arts. This is a fascinating piece, as heard before it was translated for the Roland MT-32. Thanks to John Cunney for providing this. There's a short slice in the recording as John had to record the song from a damaged cassette tape.
  • Silpheed
    Original Soundtrack
    "Fighting In Normal Space" by Game Arts. More original pretranslated Silpheed music from John Cunney. Again, recorded from a damaged cassette so the quality isn't up to par. But it's fascinating to hear the original arrangement nonetheless.
  • Sorcerian
    "Introduction Theme" by Rob Atesalp and Ken Allen. Thanks to Stephen Smith for this contribution. From the TG-16 TurboGraphx CD -- a beautifully orchestrated version of Sorcerian's Introduction theme.
  • Sorcerian
    "Music Guild Theme 48" by Rob Atesalp and Ken Allen. A greatly enhanced General MIDI conversion of the original MT-32 sequence as played on the Roland Sound Canvas. This theme really grabbed me for some reason.
  • Sorcerian
    "Music Guild Theme 52" by Rob Atesalp and Ken Allen. Another enhanced General MIDI conversion of the original MT-32 sequence as played on the Roland Sound Canvas. I'd have to say this is my favorite from the game -- in its enhanced GM configuration.
  • Space Quest Series
    Space Quest 3-6
    "Space Quest Medley" by Ken Allen, Tim Clarke, Neal Grandstaff, Dan Kehler, and Bob Siebenberg. A medley of six themes from four Space Quest adventures, recorded from the MT-32 and Sound Canvas.
  • Space Quest 1
    Roger Wilco In The Sarien Encounter
  • Space Quest 1
    Roger Wilco In The Sarien Encounter
    "The Rocket Bar" by Ken Allen. A combination of MT-32 and Sound Canvas tracks make up this 'semi-converted' soundtrack. I slapped on a little ending drum fill as well; the song didn't know where to end!
  • Space Quest 1
    Roger Wilco In The Sarien Encounter
    "Two Guys' Commentary" by Ken Allen. That pool of acid can be a real killer! "Let's see that again in slow motion." Recorded from the Roland ED Sound Canvas GS version.
  • Space Quest 3
    The Pirates Of Pestulon
  • Space Quest 3
    The Pirates Of Pestulon
    "Main Title Theme" by Bob Siebenberg. Many verteran Sierra fans remember hearing this on a demo cassette entitled, "Live from the Sierra Lounge." Obtained from the original Roland MT-32 sequence.
  • Space Quest 3
    The Pirates Of Pestulon
    "Main Title Theme" by Bob Siebenberg. By request, the Roland GS version of the above theme. Keep in mind the limitations in instrumentation when you listen to this version; the MT-32 uses several custom sounds not included with GS, but one translates with what's available.
  • Space Quest 3
    The Pirates Of Pestulon
    "Main Title Theme" by Bob Siebenberg. Yamaha XG version, recorded from my WaveForce SW60XG card. Lots of nice XG instruments to explore and I think this one really hits the spot, but I'll let you decide for yourselves...
  • Space Quest 3
    The Pirates Of Pestulon
    "The Black Hole" by Bob Siebenberg. A slightly enhanced recording of the MT-32 version -- which includes a little enhancement from the Roland Sound Canvas.
  • Space Quest 4
    Roger Wilco And The Time Rippers
  • Space Quest 4
    Roger Wilco And The Time Rippers
    "Magmethius Canteen" by Ken Allen. Arranged and performed on the Roland Fantom XR, by David Martinez Zorrilla (shad0wfax).
  • Space Quest 5
    Roger Wilco In The Next Mutation
  • Space Quest 6
    Roger Wilco In The Spinal Frontier
  • Space Quest 6
    Roger Wilco In The Spinal Frontier
    "
    Corpsman Stellar Santiago" by Neil Grandstaff and Dan Kehler. Arrangement by Quest Studios. This is such a nice song that I couldn't resist enhancing it, to bring out more of it's charm. Recorded from the Roland SC-8820.
