Well, not sure what to do with it, but I wanted to make a battlescape track kinda like the origional X-COM (all bassy and dronish)

Well, here is version 1.0

Comments/Suggestions/Queries?

Filesize is about 600k extracted.

Loops fairly well.



Added a second version - different bass synth, MUCH more depth.
Fixed zips - used a nonuniversal format (oops) now they should work.

OK, try it again. Notice i zipped it this time - maybe less chance of MIME types messing with it or something :)

Also, fixed the faders, made it more loop friendly (gap is intentional).

Looks like bzip2 method used. You can use http://7-zip.org to unpack this archive (it supports a lot of archive formats and I have no problems using it). In addition it is free software with open sources :)

Hehe I'm nothing but trouble then. :) I'll just use normal zips with no compression for any more uploads

Problem solved. It should even work with ancient PKunzip now.

Can't seem to edit the poll, unfortunatly.

What does it need for v3? I can easily make it longer. More bass? less? more variation? tweaks to the vocal drone?

To give you an idea of what kind of power I have at my fingertips ( :devillaugh: ) here is a screenshot. Of course I don't know how to use most of it :wacko:


BTW, I origionally uploaded a plain .ogg file. The forum's code must have tacked on the .mp3 for some reason :Poke:

Here is a longer version of V2. Just added an extra bass drone cycle.


I would host these files myself, http://x0563511.dyndns.org , but my computer has to be turned off when I'm not home or when everyone is asleep (term of my living here)

Anyone recommend a place to stick these so I don't use up my forum attachment limit?

Sounds good ! (especially v2)

The "problem" with theses kind of music is that they... doesn't change much. Well, that music would be perfect for... let's say, the mission on Cydonia, or when attacking an alien base maybe.

But it also depend on the type of game.

Personnaly, when I play ufo2000, i prefer more rythmed music, while in the original xcom, deep music like yours is preferable, because the original ufo is indeed a mystery game, at some point, like your music.

I also think that a background music like yours might fit just perfectly for the geoscape / base management... probably because of that feeling given by seeing the earth in the deep, empty space.

Actually, now that I think of it, it would be better for the Geoscape/base.

But I absolutely suck at creating "structured" music, rythms, and complex melodies. Don't believe me?

BTW, the rythms in those were pre-created
