Facts / description

Half of the tunes in game was used from game "Frontier - Elite 2", which was
predecessor of Frontier: First Encounters. That game had only MT32 music and
these tracks were adapted for the other Midi cards very badly. I tried the
original FFE game at various Midi cards, from General Midi to AWE32, and all
sounded wrong more or less.

Fortunately, George Hopper re-arranged the Midi tracks a bit, and released them
at his great FFE site: http://www.hooplah.com/encounters/music.htm. I included
these in the archive and made also some changes to the tunes by myself, to avoid
endless snares and weird samples in some songs (especially the Elite 2 ones).
The result is what you can see here - it sure sounds better than original tunes,
but it's still not the right cake sometimes.

I included original HMPs from the game for comparison.

Btw., for Elite 2 tunes (tracks 10-17), you should probably try the Frontier -
Elite 2.ZIP archive; they are converted from Roland MT32 to General Midi using
MT2GM tool and some sound better imho.
