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!

55. Descent II Credits (Vintage Dreams Mix) January 30, 2020, 10:35:40 PM 26
Music from Descent 2, Credits
Original Track: "Credits" by Dan Wentz
Rearranged By: DJ Hearseman (formerly Texace12, formerly formerly Alieo) via SynthFont

And that concludes all of the Vintage Dreams project I've been putting off for five years now. I'd like to make a new variation of each world (a Quartzon mix, Brimspark, Limefrost spiral) for each of the 4 songs, but I've been very busy lately. Got my CDL 3 years ago and drive trucks now, got engaged two years ago, and lost my father last year. Lots of changes. I simply don't have time to devote to Descent related stuff lately. I still pop Descent music on every now and then, of course. Y'all be good! Hopefully I get the D2 files done before 2030?
