Re: Freespace Music Remixes
HOLYCRAPZOMGIT'SDANWENTZ!

Sorry, I've been waiting all day for a chance to type that.  It is an honor to have you here. You have no idea how happy I am that I can finally say thank you so much for your wonderful work in giving this game its soul and character.

I fell instantly in love with FreeSpace from the first moment I played it.  Every scene and event filled me with awe.  After losing and rediscovering the install disks over the course of several years, I started to wonder just what it was about the game that made me love it so much.  It was the music.  It told stories the words never did.  Absolutely fantastic.  I still find myself instinctively humming the soundtrack from time to time. 

Thank you, thank you, a million times, thank you.

 

If we're talking about remixes... one of my personal favorite tracks was M5 - Spook from FS1.  Do you think you could give this one a shot?

<Nuclear>   truth: the good samaritan actually checked for proof of citizenship and health insurance

<Nuclear>   and jesus didnt actually give the 5000 their fish...he gave it to the romans and let it trickle down
<Axem>and he was totally pro tax breaks

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
I have a request:

Redo all of the FS2 and FS1 sound tracks, with live ochestras and chiors mixed in.

KTHANKS

P.S. Great work. Thanks for throwing us a bone! ;)

Quite bold.
But you know? I don't mind making a donation for such a project. It could be epic. :D

Indeed. Arranging, recording, mixing, paying for studio, orchestra and choir... Lots of effort and money.

Thanks for the expense break down. Obviously I'm being perfectly serious in that request.

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
I just finished listeing to them all on my good sound system (as opposed to the crappy earbuds I had last night), and in all honesty, I really quite enjoy the FS2 MainMenu redux. Perhaps it comes with a fairly good sound system, but I never felt the instruments were competing in any way that wasn't completely intentional. It all felt dynamic and exciting, without (IMO) being overpowering.

Either way, this is absolutely wonderful work. Thanks for stopping by!

Get a decent headphone and it sounds great! Just don't expect anything extraordinary if you play it from a Thinkpad.

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Yeah I mean, when I got my current set of (not even that awesome) headphones, I was like "I didn't know this thing existed in this song". And again when I got a cheap soundcard. Tru hi-fi gear would be great but even smaller investments really bring more spirit into music (and other audio stuff).

Exactly my point. It's even more awesome stereo-surround mode'd to 4 point surround on my main living room system.

A small voice in my head tells me they are have followed us here in the Milky Way. They follow us until we are dead at their feet. We are nomands of the stars, no longer the race that was loved by the Great Elders. My name is Kyral and this is my story of survival.

There is no sanctuary for us, in this Universe. We will fight the Terror for one last time on this Shining World. May the Transcendent judge us kindly in the Life Stream.

 
Re: Freespace Music Remixes
I must say that your work was a key part in the greatness of the original games. What I remember most from my first moments of Freespace(in childhood) is the atmosphere and the music.  You had a major part in the creation of a cult classic to which many people are dedicated to this day. :)

Joshua.

Seconded :D

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Wow, I can't even begin to say how much a part of my childhood these two games and these tracks are so I think you can imagine how awesome this is Mr Wentz!

I know this thread is going to get crowded by requests, but by any chance do you think you could please do a remix of the Lucifer death song in the last cutscene? The one on here? - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5sdlDK0TOw

No musical talent on me whatsoever so I've no idea if that track is doable or not. Thankyou!!!

EDIT: Oh and that FS1 main hail redux - sublime. Really captures the mood well.  :cool:
