I'd be very surprised if it doesn't happen on real hardware too, might need a different HDD dump.

Is there any way for that to be tested?

I'll acknowledge this while it's investigated. We'll probably need a check against real hardware for this one.

Here's a video of "Classic 2" song, probably recorded the PS version:

According to this page : those hidden music are usually available by passing certain criteria such like "Clear some song with 85% and more Great ratings", and they were officially announced by Konami. There is no reason they left them buggy.

In MAME, all musical notes fall and go out really quickly in a few seconds, the stage ends even the music is still played.

I am unable to test this issue
I cannot unlock the songs
Uploading savestates with songs previously unlocked would help
Or nvram in case songs keep unlocked once the codes have been accepted

The all music dip will let you play them without unlocking other wise the songs will not show up until the 2nd or 3rd stage of the game note only JUNGLE and AVANTGARDE are locked Classic 2 can be played on the 2nd stage with out unlock codes

Would be nice to get to the bottom of this one. If there's an issue with the HDD rather than the emulation then obviously the odds are against us. I've asked somebody knowledgable about these things who might be able to provide more information.
