Music from Fast Tracker 2 Print E-mail

Hi everyone! I'd like to give out a bunch of free music I've recorded from Fast Tracker 2, using a Gravis Ultrasound MAX (with 1MiB RAM onboard). These tracks really show off what could be done in the early and late 90s in MS-DOS, and what sound cards were really capable of.

All the recordings are FLAC @ 48KHz and can be grabbed from my web host here: http://cosmic-dreams.net/music/gus/ft2/

My personal favourite is 'Ambrozia' by Jogeir Liljedahl & Scorpik.

Enjoy the music!

There's a new radio stream in the description called CVGM - 'Computer & Video Game Music'. It mostly consists of demoscene and retro video game music, so it's got a great mixture of content. I help run it, having uploaded 800+ tracks from stuff I've recorded from Roland MIDI modules.

http://cvgm.net/ - signing up lets you request your own tracks, add them to your favourites, etc.

I couldn't really take it anymore. I had to update my website to give out everything I have recorded as FLAC - that's 27 games that use MIDI, and only 1 Mega Drive/Genesis game at the moment. Those numbers WILL continue to increase, so check it out!

Little Gift! Print E-mail

Howdy everyone. We don't see much activity here, so I decided to put up a little gift for everyone. A while ago I recorded the soundtrack 'Gods' composed by Richard Joseph from the PC version, but I haven't really spread it out much. Well, I'm giving it to all in the group - it's in FLAC so it's around 249MB total. You'll also need an archiver that supports .7z files.

Google introduced a new Google Doodle today for Pacman 30th Anniversary: A fully playable game!

You can even play simulateously with Mr & Mrs Pacman!

Dispite the layout of course, the game has really a great retro look&feel, very close to the original game - including sounds!

The way it is programmed is interresting too, mosly Java scripts & png sprites... but apparently the ghosts are a bit dumb ;)

Enjoy & viva Pacman!



Shadow of the Beast Tshirt, free Print E-mail

** Shadow of the beast Tshirt** (Get this freebie via the SL retrogaming group)


Shadow of the Beast was considered revolutionary because its graphics, with many more colours on screen and up to twelve levels of parallax scrolling backdrops, were of a level rarely if ever seen before in action games. It was also notable for its atmospheric score composed by David Whittaker that used high-quality instrument samples.

Tron 2.0! Print E-mail

It's a bit of "hurry up and wait" but the sequel to Tron is set to be released in 2011, nearly 30 years after the original movie.

Although not widely successful, the original movie remains close to the hearts of many geeky/gaming types of a certain age.  ;>

Let's hope the new one will be good!
