Precursors, Precursors where art thou?
« on: January 02, 2010, 09:42:59 pm »

This is not about THE Precursors in SC2, but about our Precursors, the team of (probably extraplanar) musical geniuses from the cold north.
I was recently rummaging through my machine when I came upon the Remix called "Orz - *Squeezing* the *Juice*". It is awesome. I miss those guys.
If I recall correctly, they had the last package (4th) to finish, but they disappeared in the middle of doing that.
Anyone has more details about them?

I think a much better question is, Gill_Bates, Gill_Bates, where hast thou been? Haven't seen you around since *Heavy Space* was awash with action and you were busy blowing stuff up.

You remembered that? I even forgot my login account, which, thank the gods (the real ones) has been found!
I missed the action on this site, it was like nothing else anywhere...

To be honest, I didn't recall that you had been posting on this site at all, but I did remember you from the SCDB. And I'm always happy to see an old hand return, even if it is usually for just a brief while. Welcome back.

As for your question, I'm afraid I can't help you. The Precursors haven't done anything in quite some time. As a consolation, I can point to you towards the PNF music page, which contains some other interesting remixes. I especially recommend TheMisterCat and PabloLuna.

Thanks, I actually used to listen to all of these a long time ago.
My question was related to the better Precursor stuff done by TiLT, Void, Riku and Mark Vera. It's a shame they got so close to the end and then stopped (missing probably one or two songs to complete the whole deal).

P.S. If were actually looking at the PNF music page, Saibuster's (Itamar's?) remix is still as good as I remembered it.

I really doubt that seeing as a lot of the material I recommended was produced during the last two years or so. that goes for all of TheMisterCat's material, a couple of PabloLunas songs and some of the various songs. The rest is old though.

As I recall most songs have been produced and some have preliminary releases. But there are people here who know a lot more about this than me, i'm sure someone will turn up to fill you in.

Yeah, there's a lot of good old stuff. Of course there's some exciting new stuff as well, such as comics, christmas cards and the likes.

Thanks for the heads up, and yes, TheMiserCat's a relative newcomer, I only heard one of his tracks (don't remember which) before today.
There are even Androsynths and Mmrnmhrm mixes there... Nice.

Maybe we should start a petition to get the Precursors to finish that last remix pack. Wink

How many songs are actually missing still? Yehat, but any others?

I think there was also no Syreen tune, and the one that is circling around isn't of good enough quality according to Mark Vera.
They probably also need to polish the existing tunes a bit, since none of these were formally released as part of the last pack.

The last time the Precursors updated here, I seem to recall the word being that the only missing song is for the Syreen. And apparently, that was only because the only one dissatisfied with it was the author himself (Mark, I think). I'm sure that's floating around in an old thread somewhere, but I can't find it.

Hmmm.. I didn't realize we we're just one song short. How annoying. Maybe we should start a petition then Smiley

I think we're still missing the intro and victory themes. Also, I was under the impression there would be a more faithful arilou piece. So maybe we're still four short.

AFAIK, nothing has changed since the previous thread about the Syreen remix.

Thank you, Novus, that's the exact thread I was thinking of.
