This page is dedicated to making the music in Final Fantasy VIII better! Sadly, when Squaresoft, Electronic Arts and Eidos released the game for PC, they did not include an option to select a hardware music device. This means that everybody who have invested money in a expensive soundcard like Creative SoundBlaster Live! by default can't use them. We have corrected this problem.

But soundcards isn't all there is to music. This project have also created a nice selection of soundfonts to use with your soundcard. The soundfonts include all the special instruments used by FF8, like voices and chants.


Currently, members of the project include Jari Huttunen, Jared Bernal, Gilbert Soberano, Samuel Slight, Joel Brown, Tony Osborne, Ficedula, Ivar Kvaal, Dag Sverre Seljebotn, and Aaron Kelley (in no particular order).
