MIDI: Percussive Organ pitch correction with GM output
|Reported by:||SF/logicdeluxe||Owned by:|
Whenever MT-32 is translated to GM the "Percussive Organ" (GM instrument 17 of 0-127) plays one octave too low. The MT-32 version actually is pitched one octave higher than the GM version. So this has to be translated as well whenever an MT-32 track is played on GM hardware. It seems to be the only instrument where this has to be done, as far as I can tell. I can transpose this manually on my MU5, and it sounds much more similar to the original MT-32 output. It is very audible with the Monkey Island games since they make much use of that instrument. You also can find the Adlib track's organ higher pitched than the GM output without transposing. I also tested this on some tracks with my other wavetables and they all sound correct with the Percussive Organ transposed one octave higher.
