thank you for this hard work
Test Drive 2: Arranged/Remixed tunes
"Pure Bliss" (by DJ Sylv3on, 22 Jan 2014) [10/10]
My god this has to be the best version of the music from Test Drive 2 I have ever had the pleasure of hearing.
I have listened to 3 different versions of this the amiga version being the 3rd and now this is my all time favorite version to listen to
The bells and the trippy chorus lines make this a must listen to.
Jazz Jackrabbit: Game rip
"Planet Carrotus" (by Warcow, 19 Jan 2014) [8/10]
First played this one when it was only the demo version out there and it was way cool back in the day. The music is also great with much variety and ideas, not too many hitsongs though to get a top rating. My favourite track is definitely Medivo.
Katakis: Arranged/Remixed tunes
"R-type" (by Warcow, 19 Jan 2014) [5/10]
Two songs here that are pretty descent for an old Amiga game. They're both a bit slow in the beginning of the songs, I prefer the Denaris remix track here.
Duke Nukem 3D: Game rip
"Duke Nukem 3D" (by Limp_Lenny, 14 Jan 2014) [9/10]
Hey! Thank you very much for uploading DK's music. Most tracks sound just like I heard them when playing the game, which is rarely the case with old games in which the music would play differently from one computer to another.
RuneScape: Game rip
"Amazed to find this!!" (by Polliechrome, 16 Dec 2013) [10/10]
I am so thankful to have found the original Runscape midis. What a blast from the past! I loved this music when my son and I played RS. What good times, nostalgic is right.
Ravenloft: Strahd's Possession: Game rip
"I love this music! But not the endings..." (by Polliechrome, 16 Dec 2013) [9/10]
Amazing variety, depth and mystery to this music. However I agree with Silas the jarring battle themes tacked to the end of such lovely music is unfortunate. I am looking for a music editor program now too.
Anvil of Dawn, The: Game rip
"This is lovely, densely scored music!" (by Polliechrome, 16 Dec 2013) [10/10]
This is the kind of music I have been looking for. Interwoven and lush, magical and memorable. My favorite so far.
Teenagent: Game rip
"hello from Poland" (by Markar, 1 Dec 2013) [10/10]
Damn good game. Played it many times. Music is also very good.
Legend of Heroes MIDI Collection: Arranged/Remixed tunes
"A pack of epicness!" (by delight, 18 Nov 2013) [10/10]
I am amazed how much effort falcom has put through in order to make these midis. I have been a fan of falcom's music for quite a while, and I have been looking for the midi collection for ages, and I FINALLY found them all here! Bravo, Mirsoft!
Duke Nukem 3D: Nuclear Winter: Game rip
"Lively arrangements" (by j7n, 5 Oct 2013) [7/10]
This game was nothing special. I remember it was mostly Duke levels played backwards with silly monsters.
But three music tracks – "Frosty the Snowman", "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Sleigh Ride" – rise above the graphical design in quality. The music is by the same person. I can hear instruments almost having a dialogue with one another in this music, and it's all different without many copied bars.
Duke Nukem 3D: The Gate: Game rip
"Unique music for each level" (by j7n, 30 Sep 2013) [9/10]
The Gate is a free modification to Duke Nukem 3D. Subjectively I find that the quality of the music is much higher than one could expect from a free game.
Like the original, every level in this game, which is a unique location on Earth or another planet, has a music track associated with it. Each composition has a different tempo and mood, and describes the area well. The player is taken back to a vast "Himalayan Hell", and a rough "Martian Red Light District" just by listening.
"Yukon Duke" reminds me of a character from "MacGyver" who, accompanied by the mean distorted guitars, enters a big city for the first time.
Compositions by Simon Castles use MIDI bank number 16256 for the drum channel, which sets a channel to drum mode in the XG standard. A few tracks also contain XG reset sysx. From this information, with good certainty, I can conclude that an XG synth must be used for authentic playback. In "Himalayan Hell" the unique Tabla instrument also sounds organic with MU50 samples. Please confirm in another review if this is true.
Battle Isle 2: Game rip
"Note for the correct pitch" (by Verbatim, 26 Sep 2013) [8/10]
the Jogrwai.mid contains the midi controller RPN Pitch Bend Sensetivity Value:1536, in the other tracks this important controller is missing, especially for the overdrive and disortion parts
if wanted I can offer a correction of the actual collection
i never played this game, but i love some tracks of this Midi OST, early i heard it over xmiplay via FM synth.
Xixit: Game rip
"Contemplative chiptunes" (by honkstar82, 11 Aug 2013) [6/10]
The influence of Andrew Sega and Kenny Chou is very obvious, but these are not high-energy songs. This is light techno-rock, good for when you're trying to concentrate. These seven tunes are great mixed in a playlist with the soundtracks from other games like One Must Fall or Jazz Jackrabbit!
Vanguard Ace: Game rip
"A review in thanks to wonderful people who made this rip available" (by Fattie, 19 Jul 2013) [8/10]
I give this a 8/10 score - and not only because of nostalgia either. Solid techno beats here.
While I can't say I'll be listening to all of the tracks in this set 24/7, those that I'll be setting in my regular playlist IMHO more than warrant the high rating. (And contrary to the notes in the *.txt, the extended parts are very nice).
Personal favourite: -Yak- (aka Main Menu music). That one just sets the chills down the back.
Once again, big kudos to whomever granted us this. It is quite difficult to play and headbang at the same time after all :D
Jazz Jackrabbit 2: Game rip
"Original Music still available in Jazz's website -- Legendary!" (by kanha, 29 Jun 2013) [10/10]
Unreal (Epic Megagames): Game rip
"You all done a great music.......ever...........Unreal" (by Thusitha Thanthirige, 10 Jun 2013) [10/10]
I am Thusitha Thanthirige, you had done a great melodious music
Jazz Jackrabbit: Game rip
"Sounds from my childhood" (by R. Wilco, 8 Jun 2013) [10/10]
Thank you for putting it online for free! Been searching it for a long time:)
Radix: Beyond the Void: Game rip
"Nonstop adrenaline!" (by honkstar82, 8 May 2013) [9/10]
This entire archive is packed with aggressively paced songs that perfectly fit Radix's theme. It's chiptune industrial metal, with an attitude that would make DooM stand up and salute. At 14 songs, it's a great pack for when you need a little adrenaline in your everyday life.
Unfortunately, these songs are not labeled any more specifically than "RADIX #" and the like. Having each song matched with its level or general theme would be a great addition, but by no means does this mean you should take a pass on this great pack of in your face metal!
