Can you please tell us which output device you used? AdLib emulator? MT-32 emulation? MIDI? Real MT-32?

Which ScummVM version?
Which platform you are on?

btw. Space Quest 6 + Gabriel Knight are not supported at the moment.

Use adlib emulator and Midi.

I use Scummvm 1.9.0git1091 -gea81d21 (14 march)
I am on windows 7 64 bits

I know SQ6 and GK are not supported but it seems this problem affects every SCi games for me. I played with SQ4 and I think I have the same problem. I tested the MT-32 emulator and the sound is better but some games are not decigned for it.

Can you please try the official ScummVM 1.8 as well?
Also which instruments are not working properly? I just listened a bit to the SQ4 intro and didn't hear any issues.

I try the official ScummVM 1.8 and i have the same issue.
It's difficult to find the instruments but the " tings" in sierra's logo stop too early (when the logo shines) and the music in aptitude test in SQ5 is really bad with midi devices.
it works great with dosbox.

Can you switch to DOSBox AdLib emulation?
Options -> Audio -> AdLib emulator

I'm not sure, if we currently use MAME as default or DOSBox. Try both.

nothing change...

I juste heard the introduction of SQ5 and the music with midi or OPL adlib dosbox and mame is not correct.
