I dunno if it's just me, but the background choir in d_messag (between 1:11 and 2:11) sounds awfully off-key. This can't be intended, doesn't sound anything like the original MIDI at all. Something similar must have happened with the background strings in d_the_da (3:45-5:12 and 5:30-end).
The other songs don't seem to have any issues and sound great. ^^

They're not out of key. They just play longer than they do in the original song: https://youtu.be/ILMtI7DmYn0?t=1m09s

If you listen to the synth voice, it's playing the same notes. Maybe because mine rings out for longer, it's giving you the perception it's out of key? I could always gate them so they don't ring for as long.

It's worth a try. I have surely heard the songs more than often enough to be able to tell when something doesn't sound right.

I listened to the new versions, but if I am honest, I cannot hear any significant improvement during the passages I have problems with. Maybe someone else can confirm so I know it's not just me who thinks that it sounds a bit weird? :D Anyway, I appreciate the effort from your side to adjust your work to user feedback. ^^

Thanks for trying it out! Sorry that I haven't quite gotten it to a satisfactory level for you yet. I double checked to make sure I didn't accidentally play the wrong notes, and they do match up with the MIDI. It could be the choice of synths too. I'll tweak it a little bit more when I work on Final Doom. Thanks for checking it out regardless!
