As the author confesser in harahabr, he just converted the [[MDS]] files to [[MP3]]. The sounding indicated that for this the [[MIDi Decoder]] was used (without the [[SF2]] file it don't dive [[General MIDI]] sounding, making the notes different).

Obviously MDS files were rendered with MIDI Decoder using "Emu de MIDI" mode, so it doesn't sound like with Roland SCC-1 patch set, but sounds like a specific sound chip. Specifically, the author firstly converted MDS to WAV using this software, then WAV to MP3.
