Duke Nukem Total Meltdown. New album???
« on: July 18, 2009, 09:10:06 PM »
Hi peeps,

I've been pondering whether I should do a complete re-recording/re-mix of the Total Meltdown music, just as I have (almost) done with Cyberspeed.

The biggest setback with doing this is, unlike Cyberspeed, I don't have the sequencer data since the motherboard of the Mac clone I used to write the music went pop, and I had backed up onto Zip disk, which then got the dreaded "click of death".

Anyway, yesterday I decided to have a go at remaking Echo and the Harewoman since it's a pretty simple track really.

Here are the results.

Click Here

I definately thing it's worth choosing some other tracks, and maybe creating an album of perhaps 10 remade tracks, using today's technology (and what I've learnt in the past 12 years),

Thoughts?

lol - it's about time I offered something up for sale, rather than for free. I've got at least 2 albums worth of stuff, plus Cyberspeed Reimagined.. and maybe this.. Just need more hours in the day ;)

You may want to download it again now as I've made a couple of small improvements.

Hmm...It sounds good but I personally prefer the Stalker song to be less danceable...and more gloomy...after all it's a stalker :D

:) I understand. This was the whole battle with the PS version of Duke. It was aimed at the European market, and they didn't necessarily want a dark rock soundtrack, wanting a bit more of an upbeat soundtrack.

It was ultimately my call, and I don't know if it was right or not, but that's what we ended up doing. I know some people think it's the best DN soundtrack, some people think it's the worst ;)

Well not really an aim now. The dancey/electronica vibe of Total Meltdown has always been there, for better or for worse ;)

It's getting there - there's something really missing atm. I think it's the instruments simply not gelling together.

OK - Stalker 2 is updated again. I'm not getting happy with the "middle eight" which is sounding really cool now. Just needed shorter notes ;)

Also took a look at Mellow Chello this weekend.. here's there results.

Yes I remember...but I didn't say it right...I meant that Stalker 2 has gone through some serious transformations ;)

Hey mate - nope, real life getting in the way. Was playing in Germany this weekend, and late nights at work again... may have something this weekend, being the last one before the family return home.
