Credits - King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella (DOS)
Credits is heard while the credits roll after the title sequence at the start of King's Quest 4, but before the introduction. The song was composed by William Goldstein. On higher fidelity devices, the song begins with a crescendo into flighty synthesizer and chimes finishing up with synthesized brass. For ports with complete soundtracks, this song is effectively the theme of the fairies and used for Genesta's Fairies and also makes up the end of the Introduction.
King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella (DOS)
Five different types of output were designed for the DOS release, each output corresponds to a different group of devices, the Roland, Yamaha, OPL2, 3 Voice, and PC Speaker.
The official version of the song uses the MT-32 output which has a flighty feel and uses chimes and synthesized strings and brass. The OPL2 version has a warmer sound more like woodwinds. The 3 Voice keeps the melody, but includes high-pitch flourishes. The PC Speaker version has only the melody and loses all of the timbre of the original.
The file is sound.002 in the resource files.
King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella (A2GS)
The Apple IIGS port plays the song on the built-in ES5503 audio chip.
King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella (AMI)
The Amiga port used the built-in 8364 audio chip.
King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella (AST)
The Atari ST port included at least two types of output, one for Roland devices and one for the system's built-in YM2149 audio chip. Since the Roland output is the same as the DOS release, it will not be recorded.
The Apple II port has music, but this song was excluded to conserve space.
