As far as I know, all the game have a shared mono output and have been recently changed to show this. Unless you have an original recording to compare against (not something from MAME) I cannot confirm that any changes aren't what they are supposed to be.

True. Super Ranger was improved.
I remember playing the arcade. To current mame version some missing sounds was added and the voice samples is perfect now, but the second stage the music was changed and not remember the arcade.
I`m sure about it.
Start any previous versions (0.138) and listen the music of second stage and compare with current mame version. Have an sound being missing in current version and others sounds was correctly added.
In previous versions the second stage music remember the arcade.

Going to put this up for feedback, we need an original PCB recording to compare MAME to before we can really go anywhere on this bug.

I remember perfectly that arcade.
In current version stage 2 music is being emulated wrong.
The problem is in YM2203 YM2 Channel 0.
The correct music is from the link below in 2:32

compare with MAME current version

When that game was added in MAME the music was emulated correct, but not had voices.
