Amiga Remake Turrican II made with MODPLUG
« on: May 28, 2011, 12:20:52 »
Hi,

Im a newbie here, ive created the iconic track Turrican II from the amiga here is all details below, please feel free to share download the track!!

This is the link to hear the tune.
http://soundcloud.com/digitaldreams/turrican-ii-soundtrack-final

This version Written and Produced by Stuart Wakeman @ http://www.dd-media.co.uk
Retro Synth Version. Please don’t ask for the .MOD .MED you wont get it.
If you love pure Synth hopefully you will enjoy this.

It is a track I always wanted to do, I Did not want to create a mix that would loose the essence
of the awesome original, by turning it into something else it was not supposed to be. The Original will always be the best in my opinion. This is my version and is my personal tribute to a golden age of vintage computer music production.
This track was done for my personal pleasure and decided to share it with the world.

Original Piece Written by Chris Huelsbeck @ http://www.huelsbeck.com
Thanks go to Chris Huelsbeck for giving me permission to create his iconic retro track.
Please respect original artist and give support, if you like this track go and buy the original.
Thanks also go to an old friend ZIPPY who suggested i should do the track thanks mate.

Equipment and software used:

Original Amiga 1200, With Octamed tracker, Original Game Turrican II for scoring.
Sony Vaio Laptop, All patterns and track created with MODPLUG TRACKER open source software, Sibelius 6 notation software.
Access Virus synth, VSTi Drum module, 8bit drum sounds. EMU0202 soundcard, Wavelab 6, Waves plugins for mastering.

Loads of late nights and patience went into making this track, its the first time ive gone back to using trackers for nearly 20years, It has been such a cracking project to work on, and finally doing the Turrican II track which I should have done years ago.
Everything you hear is created using patterns and HEX coding, No sample loops used at all.
The track was scored just by hearing the original.

It's a nice rendition, but to be honest it doesn't add anything new or spectacular. The drum samples at 2:20 are interesting, but the for the rest, I prefer the original tune a whole lot more. Turrican remixes have been made over and over again, and I personally think it's impossible to make one that's on par with the original tune.

I agree, Its was not to be a remix or anything spectacular, it was about going back old skool tracking and it was done for pure pleasure there are many superb versions and creativity mixes out there, which i could ive done, but to be honest has you say they are many versions. You can never beat the original and it was not made to do that. But I honor your feedback and thanks for taking the time to listening to it.!

Original 7-voice TFMX module (there are TFMX plugins for WinAmp/XMPlay and other popular players available), note that you need both files to play the tune.
