Ultima V MIDI with hidden arrangements

For preservation:

A collection of MIDI files extracted from Ultima V in 1995, copied through a MIDI cable to a Roland SCC-1, saved for decades on a 3½" floppy disk, reproduced here on a GS-compatible Roland MT-120.

A full performance is recorded here, and on YouTube.

Artifacts hidden inside the MIDI data reveal hidden arrangements and sound effects that were not reproduced during game play -- including percussion and sound fx that were probably reproducible only on the original composer's equipment.
