Title: The intro remix/reimagining remaster - in HD
Post by: metamorphosis on May 21, 2021, 06:06:23 am
Joke title.
But seriously, in 0.80 there is included the remixed/remastered version of my original reimagining of the precursors intro music for the game.

Unfortunately I was never entirely satisfied with the mix on the original, it was just the best I could do given the limitations of my monitoring setup at the time. I remixed it more recently, and added a few elements to give it a bit more oomph - it still won't be liked by those who didn't like it in the first place, but hopefully is a little less ear-fatiguing to anyone else.

Anyway, here's the video for it, with Megamod's HD intro (Fred/Paul's original stills scanned at a higher resolution):

In case anyone's wondering what the original sounded like, its here - it's louder but has more issues with bass and distortion:

Very nice. It definitely is more balanced now and has a better dynamic response.

Thank you - that's what I was going for, glad it's translating well on other's speaker systems.
