MasterPlayer is an Adlib and OPL3 music & sound editor for the PC, created by my good friend Peter Jørgensen back around 1994 – 1997. I only contributed to the program creation with some design suggestions and some “character-graphics” – that was created in the ANSI/ASCII text-editor program ‘TheDraw‘.

My work

Most of my tracks made in ‘MasterPlayer’ was remakes of the old ‘Editor’ scores from Amiga. Most of the converted songs was batch converted and done over a single week. The original songs all contained samples – that was the standard on the Amiga – but not in ‘MasterPlayer’. This all meaning that I haven’t been able to transfer the mood nor the feeling from the original song to the new song.

I did create some brand new tracks in MasterPlayer, though.

Do-it-your-self MasterPlayer

It is possible to download the MasterPlayer for your PC, and thus travel back to a simpler time.

BUT since Microsoft Windows is aiming for world domination, and leaving the old DOS behind, you have to run MasterPlayer through DOSBox.

Facts: MasterPlayer was created/coded by Peter Jørgensen in the years 1994-1997 in a small apartment in Rødovre, Denmark, while a large number of pizza No.29 from ‘Langshusets Pizzaria’ was consumed.

All you need is:

  • DOSbox – DOS emulator
  • MasterPlayer, Lite (July 2011) – MasterPlayer incl. ‘Blinded by You (2009)’, ‘Ascertain (2009)’, ‘All up to You (2011)’, ‘Out 4 You (2011)’, a few sounds from ‘Out for You’ and a short manual
  • MasterPlayer, Full (March 2011) – MasterPlayer incl. manual, scores and sounds

Just install DOSbox, download the wanted MasterPlayer, unpack the downloaded ZIP file and you are ready to go!
