Earlier this week, I posted some of Microsoft’s MIDI tunes over the years. Microsoft also has music found outside of the
C:\WINDOWS\MEDIA folder. Here are two more:
- PINBALL.MID (rendered using 2gmgsmt.sf2)
This tune can be found in the program files of 3D Pinball Space Cadet and serves as the background music for the game.
Just to warn you, it’s 8 minutes long.
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\oobe\images, this tune served as the background music of the Windows XP installation process. To my knowledge, this is the first and the last time Microsoft has done this.
No, Brian Eno did not compose this piece.
