Space Quest V: The Next Mutation, Digital Soundtrack CD

What started out as a take-off of Star Trek ends up managing to excel at both humour and drama. It's a non-stop thrill ride of action, adventure and comedy as everyone's favourite space janitor rigs an exam and winds up Captain of his own ship.. well, garbage scow. He'll have to confront his rival Captain Quirk and the sludge dumping that may just put the galaxy in danger, along the way. Not to mention meeting his past (future?) romance, Beatrice.
Anyway, he'll need some help.. Lucky the SCS Eureka crew has a few handy crewmembers to help him do just that- Flo, Droole, and who could forget Cliffy.
This soundtrack CD features the original "Space Quest V: The Next Mutation" Roland SC-55 General MIDI soundtrack, recorded from a Roland Sound Canvas SC-55mkII, with extensive Roland MT-32, Roland SC-8850 ED and Yamaha MU2000 XG enhancements.
All tracks recorded on a Roland SC-D70 digital sound card, at a rate of 44.1 kHz in stereo, and encoded in high-quality LAME MP3 format in the VBR mode, at an average bitrate of 224 kbps.
For more information please see SMC's forums, including the page of information on how to burn a SMC audio CD.
For the purists out there- I know I'm one of them!- master copies are available in lossless WAV format available for shipping upon (patient) request.
