Back in the 90s, it was common place to PCs to come with a 3.5 inch floppy drive. Sega released a version of the Panzer Dragoon’s soundtrack in MIDI format, and the entire soundtrack fit on one of these 3.5 inch disks. It was called Panzer Dragoon SMF Music Data. One of our community members, Skye Welse, has kindly scanned some pictures of his copy:

Today, Panzer Dragoon SMF Music Data is a rare collectable; even if you manage to obtain a copy you’ll need a floppy drive which Microsoft no longer includes support for in Windows 10. My hope is that Sega will bundle data like this with the upcoming remake of Panzer Dragoon as a bonus, although I expect the sound quality will be much higher quality in the remake itself.
