New Release... Nemesis/Gradius (The Arrival - 1st Wave)

Just a quick Shout... After about 18 months away, dealing with a couple of, (let's just say 'life-altering' issues), I've just uploaded a short cinematic re-imagining of the music for the opening wave of 'Nemesis'. As I've written in the track-notes, The C64 music accompaniment to this arcade conver...

Re: Mission of mercy (Filmscore) Remix

Yeh! My mistake on the CS-80v. It's amazing how some sounds/music just stay with you, (i.e. Vangelis & Bladerunner). Those sounds are just so distinctive written in that style. I've watched the movie more times than I can count, (last time about a month ago). The opening sequence still gets me every...

Re: Chiptunes - Roland A-01 recreating a classic C64 game tune

Hi ranzee.. It's a decent 'remix' overall and certainly sounds C64-ish with the sounds/instrumentation you've chosen. For me, the arpeggios are a bit laid back in the mix and the 'Lead' sound needs an envelope tweak, (maybe in the decay & sustain dept). The current envelope settings make it sound li...

Re: Mission of mercy (Filmscore) Remix

Hi Imre... Firstly, thx for your review, perceptive and even-handed as ever.... :-D ...and regarding the time-lapse stuff... The work I did with Andy Shukie was really enjoyable and quite challenging, (which is good!). He's a real Pro, (for an amateur) and spends a lot of time getting the shots he w...

Re: Mission of mercy (Filmscore) Remix

Hi again Doddsy.. and thanks for your comment. :) I wrote the piece in about 4 or 5 chunks which gave me the chance to completely change the instrument line-up for each chunk. The opening is pure orchestral strings with french-horns behind, (samples 100%). The rest is about 90/10 samples/synths. I h...

Mission of mercy (Filmscore) Remix

Hi all.. Been a while since I've been on the site.. or indeed, since I've really worked on any remixes.. Just wanted to announce my 2 new remixes which you can listen to on the remix64 website... and to clear something up about the MoM remix. It was never intended to be a FULL filmscore... (let's be...

Re: Bubble Bobble Rearrangification

Thanks for your compliments...
Now i'm wondering what game tune would lend itself to a swing makeover... :idea:
Have a listen to some of Rune-Bertil's stuff - lot of swing going on there..

Re: Bubble Bobble Rearrangification

Thanks for the comment, (and the shout) Andy... and Hello again! How do you feel about going back and redoing old tunes?? You rewriting what should have been there or is it like having kids? You remember being there but details are kinda sketchy:) It depends on the SID tune... Some of them, I can't ...

Re: What do you prefer VST or Hardware.

95% VSTi's for me at the moment.... It's convenience mainly I guess! I can sit down and compose/arrange fairly instantly on those days when I have an idea bouncing around in my head. The standard of sampled instruments has got better and better, mainly over the last few years. So much so that it's n...

Re: 8-bit machines limited to 64K RAM or less, said BBCtv.

I'm curious if this type of wizardry is done for modern games or if its even needed.... ...I think we had a 4-bit limitation and the best we could get out of it, which sounded cool, was the the bass line from "On the run" by Pink Floyd. Fun times. 3 reasons we don't actually need that kind system a...

Re: 8-bit machines limited to 64K RAM or less, said BBCtv.

In DOS, an accessible memory "window" could be mapped to pass-through otherwise unaccessible extended RAM. In a similar way, most of the C64 games we know and love would have been much poorer if you could only use the RAM available as standard. 'BASIC' ROM occupied about 8k of the 64k but... by fli...
