Arr, I forgot the Monolith as well, bloody great track there. :yes: But it was used at least twice in FS1 main campaign (I think at least in Failure to Communicate and of course, the last mission).

IIRC The last mission didn't have any music. :wtf:

Revelation 2 is my favouritely; particularly where it 'spikes' about 50 seconds in to a higher pitched, more urgent bit.

You're right, I just checked it. But I still love that humming sound the subspace makes. :o

Anyone else think Deuteronomy was good? It was a direct port of an old FS1 classic, and it was marvelous ingame.
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

Can't say it was bad. I just better like Revelation.

That's fine, but the whole point of me starting this thread was to determine which ingame music track was most liked by the community. I'm trying to figure out which tracks I should use more or less when fredding my campaign.

Is there any way to post a poll after you've already started the thread?

Use the ones that go best with the mission and use a wide variety of tracks. If I want to listen to my favorite tracks I can always load them up in Winamp.

So far I have plans to use Genesis in small scale dogfights and escort missions, Exodus, Joshua, and Revelation in Shivan-Terran BOE missions (there are a lot of them), and Numbers to use in missions that don't fit any of the above. I am also using Inferno tracks, so I ended up cutting Deutrenomy and Leviticus. There aren't very many Terran v. Terran missions, and Hidden pretty much replaces Deutrenomy IMO. There is one or two terran vs. terran BOE's though. I'll probably throw in Definitive and Syphon during those missions. When all is said and done, there should be a pretty even dispersment of tracks among missions. There will be plenty of variety because I'll make sure each track is used at least twice. I'm simply interested on what tracks I should use a third time.

I don't like the statement that you're looking at using a lot of BOE's.  They can be good for a climax if you do them properly, but their number should be kept very low in any campaign.

Oh, and by killing Deuteronomy, you're killing perhaps the best track in the entire game.  It's the prototypical music of shivan encounters, and that wailing horn really is Freespace music more than any one trend.

For the record, the only mission to ship with FS1 that used that track was m-duel.fsm, the multi mission titled "Leviathan Duel".  My guess is that the track was intended for the last mission, but the designers liked the ambience of no music better for the situation in the end.  Powerful track, and a real shame it wasn't acually used in any missions.  Silent threat uses it in a couple more places (maybe even one in the main campaign) but it's still relatively rare.

And for whoever said that FS1 tracks are lower quality must be on something.  Their sample rate is lower and they are only mono, but the quality is top-notch.  They are better-composed than the FS2 tracks, and the bit of scratchyness that is introduced just adds to the immersion IMHO.

Thanks for clearing that up. :D I've just started to replay the FS1 main campaign, and didn't remember exactly where that track was used.

There are many BOE missions in the campaign, but there are also quite a few missions with no combat at all. Many missions start out as simple escort missions and after 7 minutes or so turn into full fledged BOE's. Dont worry, there will be plenty of balance, as I hope to fix or even redo most of the crap in the demo if I have time.

I figured I should cut Deutrenomy 'cause it's used in FS1 and FS2. I thought since it was used so much that people would want to hear something different. I guess I was wrong. :(

When I said lower quality I meant sound quality, not the composure itself. IMO if both game's tracks had the same sound quality, I would like them both equally.

So then, if I can't cut Deutrenomy then what should I cut? :confused:

This is a bit off-topic, but does anybody have any clue who did the voice acting for Admiral Wolf? The manual lists a bunch of people, but I obviously don't have any idea who could it be.
