Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Whoa, quite an honor to have you here Mr. Wentz! I don't think FS would have been half the series it was if not for your music. There are a few FS1 tracks I could put on repeat for HOURS and not get bored. :)

You are awesome Mr. Wentz. My favorites of yours were always the M4 battle theme (DUN-nan-nuh!), Exodus, and of course the two cinema themes.

Wow. It's Mr Wentz.

Well, since everyone is asking, I think I will make a request, too. When you have the time, could you remake the FS2 ending cutscene music? I always loved the music in it. It was ominous - very ominous, suitable for the approach of the Sathanas juggernauts approaching Capella.

It's a pleasure to see you here on HLP, Mr. Wentz, and an even greater pleasure listening to your remixes.  As a fellow musician, I think your re-imaginings of each of these songs are exactly what they should have sounded like back in the 90's.  This is perfect.  I especially love the FS2 credits and the FS1 mainhall music.

My personal request: Revelation from FS2. (This one, to be exact: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noSZa7glFc4 )

You deserve a medal, good sir, for everything you've done here.

Someone please put these in the Media VPs as they're completed  :nod:

Every time you lump all religious folk under the blanket statement "delusional" or "ignorant," you put yourself on the level of the "God Hates Fags" crowd.
On the same token, there's nothing wrong with disliking religion--it's just that being an ass about it doesn't prove a point any further.

No, please don't. By Mr. Wentz's own design these are not replacements for the originals.

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Yeah, if they were higher quality versions of the original, maybe. But these are remixes. I wouldn't mind if we could pack them into a .vp and distribute it outside the MediaVPs, though.

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Exactly my thoughts, at some point. I'm just concentrating on getting these all down first.

Briefing 4 just redone... so I guess I should take that break now :)

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Oddly enough, I don't like the FS2 menu remix. It's too loud, and the drums in the background really detract from the "inbound epic stuff" quality the original had and makes it sound far more aggressive.

Now, the credits remix is excellent. Giving the voice in the background additional echo and reverb really does a lot to add to the track. The way the music stops and starts again adds a little suspense too.

That having been said, welcome to HLP. Hope you stick around and contribute to the project!

These mods are made from natural code that we pump in from retail. If you tried to run one, it would be like standing outside with nostalgia and pure awesome shining on your face. It would also set your computer on fire, so don't actually do it.

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Hey, that briefing 4 music remix is pretty good! At first, I was thinking to myself 'What the heck am I listening to?' when presented with low strings and an overall higher energy tune, but I kept listening to the track and I realised it all fits pretty nicely. It's almost like a different theme, more gritty and less mysterious, but with the same overall structure. You seem to be unafraid to expand the originals to capture different moods. Very cool.  :yes:

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Love your new take on FS2 briefing 4, I'd like to request FS2 briefing 5 if it's not too much trouble. I always thought this theme as fitting for the GTVA in general. Thanks again for all your hard work! :nod:

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Thanks for one of the best music for game that I have oportunity to hear!
I like remixes , but maybe it will be more interesting to do new music tracks for ouer favorite games? Something like take the best parts of traks and mix them in something new? It is only my dream..."after all these years" to be able to hear something new.

Probably you don't have time for this so I willl be happy to listen the remakes. Good Job! ;)

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Just going to say that I rather enjoy briefing 5 and would enjoy a remake of that. 

So far they have been great, I especially liked the credits redo.  Everything I felt that the original lacked, the remake had.  I always felt like that voice in the background was off somehow, and it was much better executed in the new version.  Stuff like that.

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
The mission G songs are mislabeled, they should be F. My fault, I think, since I mislabeled them in my request post and you probably went by the FS1 mission name originally.

I like what you've done with "G" 2, the softer lead works and I you've done something interesting with the drums that I can't quite describe. The cymbal at 0:12 seems out of place though.

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
hmm. The second part of Mission G has the ... ehrm... The instrument that comes in just as part 2 in a bit of a background role, at the end, this creates a lot of noise that just tries to compete with eachother, instead of supporting each other. In other words, it sounds a bit like a mess. I do like how that instrument sounds individually, but it gets a bit swamped.

Mission 10 ambience, the different notes change a bit abrupt at the start. If they are seperate notes, I miss the part when the player pauses to take a breadth before blowing again - and if they are connected notes, the transition is not really smooth. It sounds a bit... uncanny.

Also - good to meet you! I love the FS1 Main menu the best at the moment. I did have a personal request: The music of the intro vids (the one with Ash, and the "We form a new alliance, to gaurd the tomb of space" one)

Yes, that was a quick obnoxious Hollywood-style mix. Done in a day like all of these initial passes. As I don't have midi source for any of them, it's all from memory.

I have since cleaned that one up a bit, and readded the timpani/cymbal crescendos as it was in the original. Soon as I get upgraded account I can update the songs without losing plays/comments. I do keep notes of feedback, so when it's time to master them I'll take care of everything I have time for.
