[DECtalk] A DECtalk song I've made... again

I'm listening to the 4.6.2 version and it sounds like the DecTalk 5.0
that's available for NVDA. Are they the same?

Is there somewhere where I can hear the 4.6.2 in more detail?

I have to say that the song sounds much better in the 4.6.2 version
because its pitches are matching with the music.
