buggy sound on some DOS games

I was trying some DOS games but some of them the sound is very buggy....it's not like on a real Amiga were the sound is perfect...most of them sound like at 11 hz

for example:

Aladdin : scroll and the sound are very buggy seems it plays at 22hz both real dos and dosbox
yoi joe : sound is very buggy looks like is playing at 11 hz
cool spot : sound is very buggy it seems it plays at 22 hz or less
Turrican 2 : idem like the others....I can select only 22 hz in setup cause selecting 44hz not works even on DOSBOX

all of these was tested under real DOS + soundblaster LIVE and DOSBOX 0.74

what I'm doing wrong?

If you choose in game setup Sound Blaster instead of Sound Blaster Pro sound may have lower quality.

I don't know if Sounblaster Live is the best soundcard for DOS games as it is only "emulating" soundblaster support.

Just tried Turrican 2 in DosBox 0.74/Linux and works perfectly here. I have no idea why you would want to play it instead of the Amiga version though.

Btw it's khz, not hz
