Pinball Fantasies - Steelchambers2 HQ Remake
In case it hasn't been obvious: Yes, it's not a Remix. It's a Remake. And that's what the title says. I sampled the original hardware from which the original samples for Steelchambers2 were taken (Roland U-220 samples by yours truly, Roland R-8 samples by kb6 sample library) and replaced the original samples with high quality ones - this is how Steelchambers2 would have sounded back then if the Amiga's capabilities allowed for it.
If you listen to this, it will probably sound exactly like the original tune to your ears. But before you are going to submit yet another
this is not a remix, you have just applied an EQ to the original tune style comment, please listen to the original again after my version and you will most likely agree that the higher quality samples do sound better. What has been done here is cannot be achieved by simply applying an EQ / enhancer / stereo-izer on the samples.
In my opinion, no remix which tries to alter this tune in some way did it any justice so far (but I'm also very picky on this matter because it's the first VGM music I can remember from my childhood), the only way to make it better is to use the same samples in higher quality. That's exactly what I did, and I had a lot of fun tracking down the original sample sources.
