Re: AMIGA Revisited 2011 - Tim Wright Amiga Music Compilatio

Cheers muchly for the info! Looking up the album track listing, a curious thing emerges; all the Microcosm tracks are named after planets in the Bator system, as detailed at punishing and entirely pointless length in the Microcosm game manual. (The Mega CD manual, that is. I've never seen the CD32 m...

Re: AMIGA Revisited 2011 - Tim Wright Amiga Music Compilatio

Excellent stuff indeed. Thanks for the heads-up! Greatly looking forward to the Psygnosis anniversary album, too. Out of curiosity, did you compose the music for the Amiga version of Microcosm? As far as I can tell, the tracks on the "Vote" page were featured on the Mega CD and 3D0 versions of the g...

Ace Amiga Remixes Not on AmigaRemix

There are, of course, oodles of toppingly fab remixed tunes to be found at AmigaRemix.com. But there are some particularly nifty remakes of smashing old Amiga melodies that can't be heard there (yet), so I thought a thread dedicated to celebrating their aceness might be in order. Lately, I've happen...

Hurrah! I look forward to hearing them. Are you still planning to tackle the remaining Rodland melodies?

Alien Breed 2 - The Forgotten Theme

You know what I've noticed? Despite the fact that the title themes from classic Amiga blasters Alien Breed and Alien Breed 3(D) have been handsomely remixed by the original composers and other talented bods, nobody has ever got round to producing a remastered version of the atmospheric, groovy-creep...

Re: A bunch of unreleased WIPs

Splendid stuff! A particularly pleasant surprise to find a bit of Jarrey goodness at the end; a most nifty rendition of the famous tune.

Re: Non Kwed approved remixes of note.

Possibly everyone's already aware of this and I'm coming to the party several decades late as per usual, but there are some incredibly lovely remixes (or "remakes", if you prefer) of some groovy old Amiga game tunes just here: http://www.sunspire-records.com/static.php?page=static090116-222053 I stu...

Re: Splendid Amiga tunes as yet unremixed

Anthony Putson was working on an orchestral remix of the "First Samurai" title track for the fourth volume in the "Immortal" series. Tony wasn't entirely happy with the results though, so this version was never actually finished. However, I am glad to report the I4 album will include an arrangement...

Re: Psygnosis anniversary album by Tim Wright

How splendid! Thanks for the heads-up, Mr Power. Nifty to see that the in-game music from Beast 3 is being considered for remixing, and the music from the Mega CD version of Microcosm; the game may have been a hair-tearing disaster on every format, but I always liked the Mega CD tunes, especially on...

Re: Introduce yourself here!

... and owner of possibly the most famous name in 8-bit/Sci-fi circles except for Scott Adams :) Well, welcome! (although I'm not sure who this Nash is of whom you speak). Ah, yes; I perhaps should state just for the record that I never programmed Manic Miner, and I am not currently to be seen flyi...

Splendid Amiga tunes as yet unremixed

AmigaRemix is, of course, a thoroughly excellent thing, providing as it does the chance to hear tons of classic Amiga melodies spruced up and taken in new directions by a whole load of talented remixing folk. But while certain tunes from the likes of Allister Brimble and Chris Huelsbeck are revisite...

Re: Introduce yourself here!

Hello! I am Matt Smith, video game music fan and disciple of the Church of J Nash. Given the Nasher's well-publicised views on game music in general this may seem oddly contradictory, but hey, that's religion for you.
