Music

Miami Vice contains a single title song which will play through both the AdLib and Creative Music System sound cards. The song sounds similar to the theme song by Jan Hammer. However, Capstone was unable to obtain the rights to the music, so Rick Leinecker had to improvise and compose his own song that sounded like the theme song.

The AdLib recording starts with a 1 and the Creative Music System recording starts with a 2. A Tandy recording may exist, but the game does not run properly in DOSBox under Tandy emulation.

Rick said this about what music editing software he used for the game's music:

I would have created it on the Atari ST. I think I used some sort of Sound Blaster or Roland software. Now I write everything in either Band-in-a-Box or Finale.

The game's music files are installed in the root directory. It is unknown what the .RLN file is used for, but the ADL file is for the AdLib version of the music, the CMS file is for the Creative Music System version of the music, and the RAW file with PCM extension is for the digitized sound effects used in the game.

The VGZ file was logged during gameplay and trimmed to play back properly.
