|Tester||rodneylives||View Status||Public||Platform||MAME (Official Binary)|
|Assigned To||Resolution||Open||OS||Windows 10 (64-bit)|
|Version||0.224||Fixed in Version||Build||64-bit|
|Summary||07759: rampart, rampart2p, rampartj: Digitized sounds are heavily favored over synth|
|Description||In the arcade Rampart's digitized sounds (drums mostly) are loud but not overwhelming, whereas in MAME they heavily drown out the rest of the music. It is difficult to put numbers to this, but one could go by the SNES port for a better sense of how the sound should be.|
|Steps To Reproduce||Just play the game. Anyone with experience with the arcade version will notice it immediately.|
|Additional Information||This has always been true of MAME's rampart drivers.|
|Affected Sets / Systems||rampart, rampart2p, rampartj|
|There are no relationship linked to this issue.|

|A good example of what I'm talking about is the ending music, audible (sort of) at the end of the playthrough video here:|

Without original recordings from authentic PCB outputs, we don't usually consider such reports as bugs. A console port cannot be used as a guide here. Do you have a confirmed recording from the arcade game that can be used for reference? I'd also suggest you check out the upcoming release from mamedev.org (0.225). A lot of work was done with audio streams to better handle multiple streams from different sources.

Use the "~" and arrow keys to turn down the OKI MSM6295 ADPCM chip and turn up the Yamaha YM2413 FM chip. You should be able to do this separately.
It is hard to get all the sound chips at the right default volume for every game which is why the volume mixer exists.
