Maniac Mansion PC help - Getting Sound working.

So guys, I have an original copy of maniac mansion (enhanced PC version), and it works fine, but i get no sound when i play it in real DOS (on an old pc with an AWE64 Gold ISA soundcard, correctly initialised with the correct MIDI soundfont), despite the fact that MI1, MI2 and fate, and full throttle, work with the midi sounds, so i know its not a problem with that. however when playing the game on my modern PC in SCUMMVM, i get sound, why is that? surely on my DOS pc i should get *something*, is it because the sounds/music are not midi but only from the internal speaker? that would make sense i think as my motherboard doesnt have one. P.S. if all your going to post is "why are u using real dos, just emulate it" don't bother. this is a project of mine. Basically, is there proper midi music for maniac mansion, or was the sounds only provided through the internal PC speaker?

Currently got (complete in original Big-box format)
  • Maniac Mansion (seperate from DOTT)
  • Battle of Britain: Their Finest Hour (Want to sell, PM me)
  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

To Get
