I rather like the probe remix too, but I have the same problem with it that I have with the original: in a game with speech, the music should have no vocals -- otherwise the music tramples on what is spoken.

I can imagine a "re-remix" of this track with no vocal samples at all, and in my mind it would fit underneath the probes perfectly.  But this remix is a fine homage to the original, in addition to being an excellent piece of music in its own right.  If the members of Medeival Future are reading this forum, my hat goes off to you.

We do indeed read the forums, or at least I do. I'm Espen Gätzschmann, one of the two guys behind the Probe remix. It's cool to see that the remix is so well received by all of you. Remixing music for a project like this is scary stuff, with all the rabid fans of the originals still hanging around. Wink

Hm... the probe remix does in fact sound quite nice but I think I prefer the quirky, insane, and somewhat demonic original.

May I ask for the status of the following songs? (and if the answer is 'yes'; What's the status of the following songs?)

The Ur-Quan
The Slylandro song (not the probes one but actually meeting them)
The Chmmr
Quasispace
The Yehat

Perhaps you could give one of these as a preview as the next one?


Well, this is a guess, but I'm guessing you'll be waiting a long time for at least 2 of those.  I'd bet that the ur-quan and the yehat will be two of the last remixes to be released, since they're the ones most likely to catch flack.

I've heard one version of Slylandro song, The Ur-Quan - no idea, Chmmr - very great remix imho, Yehat not entirely sure about it's status.. And Quasi-Space is ready as I made it myself.

To question what remix will be released next.. it's up to Riku. But I can quite safely say that it is very likely it won't be my Quasi-Space remix. It is too awesome remix to be released in advance.. hehe  Grin

The sylandro probe music is good, I liked it. It fits rather good to probes.. the vocals.. I don't think they are annoying in the game in this song.

I, personally, can't wait for the Spathi and ZFP remixes.

Thanks.. though my personal opinion is that it needs remake Smiley

I quite enjoyed the Slylandro remix, although it could be a little more like the original, with a more WE COME IN PEACE voice overs at varying pitches/speeds/volumes to give it that confused machine quality.

I must agree with Gill Bates's comments about Saibuster's Hyperspace mix, it is awesome.
Mark have you or Riku listened Saibuster's hyperspace mix?
Your thoughts?

Is nice remix. Intro is too long considering overall length. Sounds are okay, maybe little bit more filter could have done justice. Tempo is slower than original, so the song is more of chilling, than exciting hyperspace trip. It's missing some clear melody part even though all the melodies from the original are there. Drums could have a bit more variation. Nice remix, didn't hook me though. Probably because it has this a bit lazy feeling.

Saibuster did good job, not arguing with that. I'm just quite critical about music, not happy with my own music either Smiley

Nic, I agree with you 99% of the time where regards no vocals in music, but for the Sylandro probe music, I have to make an exception. In SC2, all that chatter going on kinda added to the character of those little buggers... it kinda made me feel that the probes were malfunctioning.

And the problem is, with the remixes, you need to incorporate at least one element of the song. And since "we come in peace" being spewed out at various frequencies, sparse beat notwithstanding, was ALL the song, there's no getting around keeping it in, IMstupidO.

And what's this I hear about a Shofixti remix? Where can I give it a listen, or do I need to pan down the front page or something?

Personally i would prefer remakes in addition to the remixes with scratching and other stuff that's not part of originals. The remake versions would stick to the original songs as much as possible and make it sound like if it was done to sound like what the originals are, but with todays technology. Look at the current melodic electronic music that takes influences from 80's and kraftwerk but with more accurasy, punch and enchanced feel.

If there's many remixers to one song, would be great if atleast one of them would do like this instead of making the song sound too modern/today style..

Personally i like the orbit1_remix.ogg a lot as you can guess from this writing and mv's hyperspace mix is quite nice too..

and a opinion about the orbit mix:
the background sounds "wooooshhh" come too much in sync with the main melody and maybe rise too loud covering up the nice sounding instrument of the original theme. Good ambience there still!

The orbit song is clearly a remake.. might be nice if there was tagging in songs like orbit_remake and xxx_remix and then player was able to choose whether he's in the mood of the original theme and the total remixes. For oldschool sound one could use the .mods ofcourse heh.

I agree you with this one, and that's why my remixes are more of a remakes. Though the Quasi-Space remix.. well, you could call it remake when you hear it. Even though I scratched it quite a lot, imho it still has the original feeling. Hope you like it when you hear it.. Smiley

Not sure if there are that many remixes of one song, as it's quite a big job even to do full set of remixes of all of them. Even though I do some remixes for this project, and some songs are remixed already, I have my personal project to remix all the song myself. I hope to finish it some day Smiley Three songs already made, 4 started.. and lots of ideas for others.

Thanks, and there's always something to improve Wink I need to remake the Hyperspace remix some day when I have the time.
