Super Mario All-Stars gets the MSU1 audio treatment

Once again, for those who are unfamiliar with MSU1...

MSU1, also named "Media Streaming Unit revision 1", is a homemade enhancement chip made by byuu for the SNES. It allows the SNES to have 4 GB of storage space and CD quality Stereo Audio.

Thanks to Goncalo for the heads up!

Normally I'm cool with what people do with MSU1, but in this particular game the musical arrangements lack the charm and punch of the originals.

I really like how the original SNES sound chip sounds.
I don't like MSU1.

The title screen, menu, and everything I heard of SMB2 sounded great, in my opinion. However, some of the tracks sound like cheap MIDI renditions, the SMB theme and the SMB3 Athletic theme in particular (the latter is missing the countermelody that plays in the background the short descending note countermelody that plays 10 ten seconds into the song). 1-1 and the Fortress theme are perfect, though.

Some of those instrument choices are just...really unfitting. I'm fine with how the game sounded originally.

I do not like MSU-1, Sam-I-am. Not for me. If it sounded good, I'd be down.

Shit remixes like every other MSU1 job.
