Re: Freespace Music Remixes
I think we'd be remiss in not mentioning Silent Threat: Reborn, too.

 
Re: Freespace Music Remixes
I think it'd be worth taking a look at Shrouding the Light, as I felt it was a very well-executed campaign. Transcend might also be interesting to take a look at.

Back to the music though - The M6 Normals were great, emphasis on the second part. I felt a huge wave of nostalgia sweep over as I heard that briefing music play, as it played on the first campaign mission of FS1.

Seriously, Mongoose is right. Silent Threat:Reborn (ST:R) is the HLP community's remake of the Silent Threat expansion to Freespace1. It is fully voice acted and a complete production. You would probably be really interested in playing silent threat reborn, especially since you are one of the members of the team who worked on silent threat. Note that it requires Freespace1 port (fsport) to play.

Here's a link to ST:R: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=59120.0

'Worlds apart' nrml is great, takes me back to the original. You also did a remix for m2_bttl and it's awesome! I like those hushed riffs during the quiet bits. You're making the kid in me very happy. You seem to be doing all the freespace tracks in order. You planning on doing m7_nrml1?  :nervous:

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
All the campaigns mentioned are great, but I think Vassago's Dirge is utterly unique in its usage of music. The music was an integral part of the campaign.

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
An electric guitarFS2 menu would be amazing. Don't suppose there's software to generate tabulature for it?

I'll see, the software I use does export notation pretty well. So I suppose it's possible to do tabulature.

And yes, I do plan on using the existing battle reduxes for Marauder. I'll check out those mods too, only one I've tried  before was Behind the Red Line. BSG is one of my favorite series from Sci Fi. So say we all!

Re: Freespace Music Remixes

Diaspora is the result of people with creative differences on the BtRL team splitting off and making something that looks even better than what we got the first time around.
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Silent Threat: Reborn is the definitive fan-made Freespace campaign. There are plenty of others, but do yourself a favor and play that one first, because it sets the bar damn high.
We have returned to continue our purification of this galaxy. It is again your turn to be crushed beneath the great force that is the Antaran army. All your petty squabbling with the other beings in this galaxy is meaningless. The Antaran fleet will destroy you all, one by one. You may not surrender. You cannot win. Your only option is death.

I completely disagree - it's one of many strong campaigns that are of a quality, but which differ in their areas of excellence. ST:R's strengths lie in its adherence to the style and quality defined by Volition. Other campaigns may impress you in different areas; Vassago's Dirge makes the most creative use of music and has the most sophisticated sense of visual style. Yet other campaigns excel through technical feats - enhanced AI that dwarfs the original, or tricks of mission design that were never possible in Volition's time. Some depart considerably in narrative style (Derelict, for instance).  There's no single best campaign and nothing anywhere near definitive.

If there's one truly astounding strength to the FreeSpace community it's the diversity of campaigns that have been produced. Mind-bending RTS campaigns, capital ship command, dialogue trees - we've done it all.

Make up your own mind about what interests you.

You should hopefully get a kick out of the sound track for Diaspora :)

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Looks like the Marauder normals are up. Marauder is actually my favorite track in FS1 (possibly because The Hammer & the Anvil was a ludicrously fun mission). Marauder was so good it even got reused in FS2. :yes:

Can this be midified?
With the rapid increase of FS fan-made campaigns, we're giving the GTVA a harder time with more violence and genocide.

It is MIDI... right?  So, you're asking if he can post the source MIDI files?

Hi Dan,

Thank you for posting your reduxes on Soundcloud; http://soundcloud.com/daniel-wentz/


Did you like the music from Tripods BBC series from the 80s by Ken Freeman;
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mvpgb5d1YM

The opening Titles are very dramatic, always got me pumped on a Saturday morning!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AmykynKhMw

Closing Title
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsaBqdOGLfY&feature=related

Looks like Ken has made a redux album for the unmade series 3 of Tripods...  hmmm

Enjoy

Yes. these are all MIDI, but without having the proper supported plugins, posting them would be pretty... useless.

OK, I've been busy this week, Marauder is basically *done and with it we have 93 total music sections rendered and ready to be put into the game. I'm started on Monolith and the normals are up.

And... after 3 weeks of searching I think I finally found an apartment to stay at in Chicago!

*Disclaimer, it's not really done yet. :)

You're very welcome, if only I was this productive back in 1997! I will check those all out when I get a chance.

Re: Freespace Music Remixes
Hello,
All Ancient music has been redone as of today - some contain slightly extended versions as they were originally composed.
http://soundcloud.com/daniel-wentz/sets/freespace-ancients-set/

The plan for the finals (submitted to HLP with the redone high res cinematics) will be to have Clarissa, who is the original voice actress, redo all the voice overs.  I know she's anxious to do so! I'll condense the extended scores as needed.
