You request hints for specific soundbites, not generic questions Smile

The hint(s) you'll receive (tomorrow) will be in the form of another (related to the one in question) soundbite Wink
(For the rest, see my post above.)

Fuck Konami Wink (Fair enough Wink)

4 of the 12 are MSX2.
And almost all are in-game Wink

Ok, so i request more hints for soundbites "Sieben" and "Zwölf".
This is totally random, since I would need seven hints. :-)

Bonus question: a tune rearranged - do you recognize it / guess what it is? (Surely it fades away before the main melody arrives ;))

That's pretty cool. :) How was this done? Did you 'spread out' the contents of some of the original channels, and/or (quite expertly) produce new (percussion) sounds?

(yes, I'm actually following this awesome quiz a bit, even if not participating, and I'm a bit ashamed to say that I indeed recognized each and every entry in the previous music question easily)

@danny, ok cool Smile Mention a third as well. (Dan is hard-capped @ 2 hints, but he might not even need them o/c... Wink)

@John: ah! I'm not surprised you got all the tunes there Smile (Quest like these I think a pitty John is missing this stuff, but you're not apparently (old lurker) Smile I missed Chiller (only knew the familiar start of the tune Tongue), and Aramo I didn't have a clue..)

Did you check the soundbites?

It's done by recording PSG & FM channels in openMSX. Basically I'm just recreating the song there bit by bit / channel by channel Smile Everything chopped up in loopable samples (but I don't loop them actually). Complete melodies, but beats/percussion I chopped up smaller (simply loop-size). I also cut a flute like thingy to use additionally.
I checked the song elsewhere today, and must say the hi-hat is quite in your face here, can hardly notice it when I listen to it elsewhere strangely...

Old 'project' from 2017, thought now it would be a neat time to throw it in Wink
(Although I never really completed it to satisfaction.)

It's a nice concept that could be used on other tunes as well Smile
(Nice to play with for the casual novice 'arranger' like myself Wink)

Do you recognize it btw? (don't mention! Smile) It's a wonderful tune Smile (You recorded it a bit on the short side though... Wink)
