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!

24. Fat Chicks With Nunchucks (Game02 Nereid Dreams Remix) December 23, 2015, 07:05:29 PM 200 1
Music from Descent 1, Level 24: Nereid Volatile Mine
Original Track: "Game02" by Ken Allen, Brian Luzietti, Larry Peacock, Leslie Spitzer, Jim Torres, Tim Wiles
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.

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.
18. Vindication (Game18 Vintage Dreams Remix) December 04, 2015, 02:01:37 AM 133 1
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.

Music from Descent 1, Level 15: Titan Mine
Original Track: "Game15" by Ken Allen, Brian Luzietti, Larry Peacock, Leslie Spitzer, Jim Torres, Tim Wiles

"Plateau" because it plateaus... and then reaches a new plateau... and another... and before you know it, it's 6'50" later!

I never typically cared for Game17, but I loved how this one turned out and actually like Game17 now.
21. Castaway Emancipation (Game21 Vintage Dreams Remix) December 23, 2015, 06:56:28 PM 108 2
Music from Descent 1, Level 21: Oberon Iron Mine
Original Track: "Game21" by Ken Allen, Brian Luzietti, Larry Peacock, Leslie Spitzer, Jim Torres, Tim Wiles
Rearranged By: Texace12

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".  :-\

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.
02. Sabotage (Game02 Vintage Dreams Remix) November 18, 2015, 02:02:57 PM 86
Music from Descent 1, Level 2: Lunar SciLab
Original Track: "Game02" by Ken Allen, Brian Luzietti, Larry Peacock, Leslie Spitzer, Jim Torres, Tim Wiles
Rearranged By: Texace12

This one was modeled after the D1 demo version of Level 2.

Music from Descent 1, Level 14: Europa CO2 Mine
Original Track: "Game14" by Ken Allen, Brian Luzietti, Larry Peacock, Leslie Spitzer, Jim Torres, Tim Wiles

Don't play with Ouija Boards, or else Game14 may occur. Length unedited. Straight re-instrumentation.
12. Cast Away (Game12 Vintage Dreams Remix) November 23, 2015, 11:31:12 AM 80
Music from Descent 1, Level 12: Callisto Tower Colony
Original Track: "Game12" by Ken Allen, Brian Luzietti, Larry Peacock, Leslie Spitzer, Jim Torres, Tim Wiles

Arranged in the style of "Robotic Menace," the Redbook version of this track found in the PSX and MAC versions--not the same instruments as the Redbook version, but the same progression.
11. Invasion (Game11 Vintage Dreams Remix) November 23, 2015, 11:26:12 AM 74
Music from Descent 1, Level 11: Io Sulfur Mine
Original Track: "Game11" by Ken Allen, Brian Luzietti, Larry Peacock, Leslie Spitzer, Jim Torres, Tim Wiles

Extended ending with progression.
