In 1987, Ad Lib, Inc. produced the Ad Lib Music Synthesizer Card. The card, which used Yamaha's YM3812 sound chip to produce nine channels of sound, soon became the first de facto standard for add-on sound cards in IBM PCs and compatibles. As a result of this success, most video games developed for the PC would offer “Ad Lib” support for many years to follow.

This website offers a selection of video game soundtracks which make use of the Ad Lib card. All music is recorded using the Adlib-DigiSnap, a device engineered by Olli Niemitalo which interfaces directly with the YM3812 chip to allow for perfect captures of the original sound. Since this website offers the songs in MP3 format, you can enjoy listening to them using your favorite music player: comfortably reliving the good old days.

Special thanks to Janne Ropponen for providing my first Adlib-DigiSnap, and to Ronnie for the updated model.
Download and enjoy your favorite classic PC video game soundtracks from the list below.
