ShadowsOfLight:
Part I Compilation (7 In-Flight, 7 Briefing, 5 Mainhall) (UPDATED August 28, 2021)

Part II Compilation (9 In-Flight, 9 Briefing, 8 Mainhall)


As promised a while ago, I've begun work on some original music to be used generally by the community. Anyone will be welcome to use these tracks as they become available. Because I have had success with this method in the past, I will be writing music, at least initially, based on the ships of the base games. I will keep my progress up to date in this post.

An important note: if you hear a track that is close to something you would use, but needs some small tweaking, let me know. Once I am done the overall project I can try and make modified versions to fit specific needs.

A few notes on my method, which will hopefully result in a good range of styles/moods:


* Terran, Vasudan, and Shivan tracks will have distinct styles in addition to an electronic sci-fi component. (Militaristic, ethereal, metal/horror respectively)
* FS1 ships will result in more vintage synthesizer sounds and synthesized instruments; FS2 ships will result in modern synthesizer sounds and real instruments.
* In-flight tracks will be based on groups of small craft (interceptors, space superiority, assault fighters, light bombers, heavy bombers). I find it helpful to write a single track first and split later, so I will provide a "master" version of each of these as well. Where possible, I will try and make a set of 3 ambience tracks for FS1 style soundtracks, along with a 4th ambience track for FS2 style soundtracks.
* I will release each in-flight as a separate .7z file for now, which will include all of the soundtrack files as .ogg (usually 9 per set) and a .tbm two .tbms filled with the right names and values, one for FS1-style soundtracks and one for FS2-style soundtracks (both using the FS2 standard auxiliary tracks for victory, death, etc.). Once I get more finished, I might group them one way or another. The “Master” track, in .mp3, will be posted via a separate link.
* Briefings will be based on cruisers, corvettes and possibly some other miscellaneous craft.
* Mainhalls will be based on destroyers (and those two juggernauts).
Having this structure will help me stay motivated, since I like to think about the big picture of things. But obviously I will take artistic liberties as needed. Yes, it's a bit weird, but it works so what can I say? I don't know if I'll get through everything on my list, but I will pick at it when I get a chance.

Sidenote: this music (just like all of my stuff lately) will be released under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike. Meaning that you can use them freely even outside Freespace-related things, as long as you give me credit and share any derivatives of the music under the same license.

Thanks for the head's up. That was just to give a preview of the track, all of the important stuff is in the MediaFire link. Maybe I'll start doing YouTube for that instead.

Goober5000:
Great work.  I really like the first track and I'm looking forward to the others. :yes:
