wcnut has some interesting news for Wing Commander audiophiles. There's been recent progress on the emulator that seeks to simulate the sound quality of the Roland MT-32, which Wing Commander 1 was specifically designed to take advantage of. Gamers with the original hardware still have the best original WC music possible, but this new enhancement opens the door for quite a few fans to experience this amazing music while playing. Taewoong has built a custom DOSBox build that incorporates the MUNT emulation patch, and wcnut has recorded a video of the first mission to give everyone a sample.

Some of you may have been aware of Munt for a long time and thought it has gone stagnant. Not anymore! Turns out it has been being worked on behind the scenes. Thanks to the contributions of a new member, it has made hHuge strides in the past month to the point where it will soon be almost a perfect emulation if it isn't already now. They claim a new stable build is soon.
What this means for WC? A far better alternative to the standard Soundblaster Emulation in dosbox.
I uploaded a sample play-through of the first mission up on Youtube. Those with real devices should compare it.
