The sound in GTA (8 bit color) is distorted/muffled sometimes. When it happens, the sound stays that way the entire session (I'm not sure if a restart of GTA or perhaps dosbox is required to fix it). Attached is a zip file with two OGG's demonstrating the problem.

Sound device is set to Gravis Ultrasound in gta config.

Dosbox sound config:

[mixer]
nosound=false
rate=44100
blocksize=256
prebuffer=20

[sblaster]
sbtype=sb16
sbbase=220
irq=5
dma=1
hdma=5
mixer=true
oplmode=auto
oplrate=22050

[gus]
gus=true
gusrate=22050
gusbase=240
irq1=5
irq2=5
dma1=3
dma2=3
ultradir=C:\ULTRASND
