The Legend of Kyrandia has three versions of its soundtrack. All of the music files are located in the root install folder. The XMI files are used for Roland MT-32 / LAPC-I devices, the ADL files are used for the AdLib and Sound Blaster devices, and the SND files are used for the PC speaker device. It is unknown which music is used for the Tandy 3 Voice device. The AdLib soundtrack was recorded with RDOSPlay.

Legend of Kyrandia forced you to use the same device for both music and sound. So even if you had a Sound Blaster and a Roland MT-32, you couldn't utilize them to their full potential.
