Thanks Mike. I did try and have a go at remastering the music from the first US video last year. I recorded all the music that didn't have explosions, laserfire or character dialogue onto minidisc. From there I was going to loop or piece together different bits in my sampler, It was quite frustraiting though as there just wasn't enough usable material. You can get a good loop from the funky battle music, but the track gradually transposes higher as the onscreen action intensifies. I wish I had an audio example at hand, But I'm sure you know the track I'm on about. Anyway Having a 2 and Half second loop repeating for 3 mins is going to get a bit tiresome for the listener, you can transpose the loop in my sampler while still keeping the original BPM but it would be applied to the whole track, so it would also change the pitch of the drums as well, which aint no good. Some of the more mellow tracks from the series like the Skull's theme are much longer loops and could definitely be re-mixed with maybe some beats laid over the top.Alternatively, tracks like the funky battle music could be re-made. Although absoloutely fantastic sounding, they're quite basic sequences and could possibly be replacated using the right Analogue gear. Although a cover version might not go down well with Paul bliss fans, however a Big Bouncey updated version Might be usefull for creative projects, Video games, Genesis, etc?Shane.
