Well, I doubt :( I tried those in DOSBOX, OPL register writes captured (as I
did with Dune too, that was the way I could include the result in my program
to playback it on a C64), but the capture didn't even started (capture file
is opened on the first AdLib register access by DOSBOX). So I guess they are
not OPL stuff, but digitalized samples .........
