Descent I + II - The Vintage Dreams Mix
Album - Owner: Alieo - 40 items
A SynthFont Project using the "Vintage Dreams Waves v2.sf2" sound font. I took an opposite approach from previous past projects to when I made the original MIDIs try to sound more like real orchestral instruments. This time, using the Vintage Dreams Waves sound font, I try to return that vintage feel to the old MIDIs/OPL3s with this high quality synth-heavy sound font. It was challenging on some percussion-heavy songs because there aren't many percussion instruments to choose from.

And the banks were all screwed up; none of these songs were a straight translation to this sound font--I had to select the instruments by hand for each MIDI track because the bank to the Vintage Dreams Waves sound font wasn't numbered correctly. For example, a square in the original MIDI would've translated to some annoying off-key bell--so everything had to be reassigned by ear and by hand.

Also, MOST of the MIDIs that were shorter, under the 3:30 mark, got extended, but in a way that made it sound like the song had an extra verse. Game10 is no longer the longest song, now Game15 is. And for Game20, which was really short, I extended it from the beginning and gave it a lead-in progressing intro.

I hope you like my interpretation!

Stuck in an abyss that smells like farts? Well, just put THIS track on!  ;D

Music from Descent 1, Level 17: Tethys H2O Mine

I never typically cared for Game17, but I loved how this one turned out and actually like Game17 now.

Music from Descent 1, Level 18: Miranda Mine

This one gives a nod to the OPL3 and Redbook versions. I didn't extend this one as it was long enough at 3:57.
19. Crush 2020 (Game19 Vintage Dreams Mix) January 30, 2020, 09:52:22 PM

Music from Descent 1, Level 20: Oberon Mine
Original Track: "Game20" by Ken Allen, Brian Luzietti, Larry Peacock, Leslie Spitzer, Jim Torres, Tim Wiles
Rearranged By: Texace12

Levitation (Game08) had a custom outro; Horizon (Game20) has a custom intro. It's intended to give a feeling about approaching an unknown horizon in the distance, then things coming into view.

Correct me if I'm wrong about the title to Level 21. It's been awhile. I wasn't sure if it was "Oberon Iron Mine" or "Oberon Iron Ore Mine".  :-\

Went back and redid the arrangements for Game01-Game05 for Levels 23-27. I'll also do a third mix of Game02-Game04 as #s 28-30 for Secret Levels 1-3 so we'll have an even 30 arrangements for all the Descent 1 Levels.

Rearranged By: Texace12

This was what I originally game up with for Game02 and was going to scrap this version in favor of the one I currently have posted for Lunar SciLab because the one I made for Lunar SciLab as it stands is most like the D1 Shareware version that I grew up and first associated with Level 2, but I knew I didn't want to throw this version away because I liked this one as well.

You've heard this before. It was the one I had for Level 3, but I reassigned it to Secret Level 2 (Song 29).
30. Overrun (Game04 Vintage Dreams Mix) January 30, 2020, 10:05:38 PM 11
Music from Descent 1, Secret Level 3: Astoroid... something something... (can someone help? I forgot the name of the third secret level of D1. It was that really difficult one with the fusion hulks all over the place; briefing said it was overran with infected robots.)
