j7n's reviews:

    Duke Nukem 3D: Nuclear Winter: Game rip
    "Lively arrangements" (by j7n, 5 Oct 2013) [7/10]
    This game was nothing special. I remember it was mostly Duke levels played backwards with silly monsters.

    But three music tracks "Frosty the Snowman", "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Sleigh Ride" rise above the graphical design in quality. The music is by the same person. I can hear instruments almost having a dialogue with one another in this music, and it's all different without many copied bars.

    Duke Nukem 3D: The Gate: Game rip
    "Unique music for each level" (by j7n, 30 Sep 2013) [9/10]
    The Gate is a free modification to Duke Nukem 3D. Subjectively I find that the quality of the music is much higher than one could expect from a free game.

    Like the original, every level in this game, which is a unique location on Earth or another planet, has a music track associated with it. Each composition has a different tempo and mood, and describes the area well. The player is taken back to a vast "Himalayan Hell", and a rough "Martian Red Light District" just by listening.

    "Yukon Duke" reminds me of a character from "MacGyver" who, accompanied by the mean distorted guitars, enters a big city for the first time.

    Compositions by Simon Castles use MIDI bank number 16256 for the drum channel, which sets a channel to drum mode in the XG standard. A few tracks also contain XG reset sysx. From this information, with good certainty, I can conclude that an XG synth must be used for authentic playback. In "Himalayan Hell" the unique Tabla instrument also sounds organic with MU50 samples. Please confirm in another review if this is true.

j7n as source of these music records:

These music records are available to you also thanks to j7n. This means, if the tune is Digital Audio, j7n probably supplied some information to the music record. In case of downloadable MOD/MID music files he probably supplied and/or ripped some or all tunes.
