Try to reproduce it. Then send me a save game and instructions how to get it. Without that i can do nothing.

The YM2149 chip is not supposed to be able to play samples at all. It can do it only with a trick but the cpu has to push every sample manually (no dma). Disk space can count too, so low frequencies are quite common.

Anyway, the ST can do high frequencies when it has nothing else to do. Listen to the title music for example.
