GoldenEye 007 Music Revisted
« on: September 15, 2018, 03:36:30 PM »

After making my original GoldenEye 007 recordings I started on Perfect Dark and it was impossible to finish at the time because of how many manual patches I had to make to the MIDI files and other things, which is why the Perfect Dark set has been sitting there stale. Plus I was not sure why certain problems were present (the flat orchestra hit that trillions of people have mentioned was because of a wrong sample, but there were other issues with the balances between instruments, panning, etc.)

I decided to expand and practice making these recordings on other games and then revisit GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark after I had both a proper pipeline in place and experience to help me solve these issues and produce better results.


My new GoldenEye 007 set blows the previous one away in all aspects. If you have the previous set around you will be able to very quickly hear how far I have come over the last 2 years. I have made over 1,000 recordings since then and it shows in this new set.

And now I have a bunch of other games also all recorded with the same quality:

This is now a long-term project of mine to remake the OST's from many games in high quality. I plan on lots of games and may take requests at some point.
I also may do games from other systems later.

For now, enjoy!

This is excellent man. Do you have a place to download this in all its high quality glory?

Not yet, but soon.  Have had to skip Perfect Dark for a bit and am currently on Banjo-Kazooie.  There are over 200 songs to record here so I will be stuck here for a while.
So when I find some down time I will prepare a lossless download.  I’m guessing the main one you want is GoldenEye 007?

Yes, that would be the one.

Thank you.
A small update since it has been a while.

Perfect Dark is a unique set and I modified my tools for it.  Song #93 introduced me to a bug in my tools so I started over.
Last weekend I was at song #86 when I found another reason to start over.

This will be the final restart and the whole set should be up this weekend.
The Perfect Dark set will be uploaded using a new style for the videos.

You can preview Alien Conflict:
And Maian Tears:

All of the Perfect Dark videos will have this title-screen effect in HD (with the name and title in the upper and lower letterbox area so that they can easily be blacked out if you want to watch just the effects), and the observant observer may observe that yes, the title-screen effects are different between the videos, just as they are each time you turn on Perfect Dark.



What does everyone think about this direction for the Perfect Dark set?

I am spending a lot more time on Perfect Dark than I ever imagined, but the results are turning out great.

Today I uploaded the first “source” recording:
This means that it uses the actual source that was sampled to create the in-game sample for that song.

Just to give an update, since progress on Perfect Dark appears to have stopped while new OST’s are being uploaded.
Perfect Dark is done recording (with over 110 songs to upload), but I have larger plans for the videos and some equipment is on its way.

I will be traveling abroad to undergo a significant life-altering surgery next week.  I don’t have the equipment to make the Perfect Dark videos how I want them and instead of making a quick set to be replaced later I have decided to use this time to get in as many small and simple OST’s as I can.

So for the moment I may or may not upload another small OST, then 2 weeks of silence as I recover, followed by Perfect Dark and then business as usual.  Note that GoldenEye 007 will actually be redone one final time (no other OST’s are currently slated to be redone).

Just an update:
Complications after surgery have caused-
Keeping it simple.

I will die if I get an airplane as of now.  I am trying to recover just enough to get back to America, but there is a slight possibly that all of my work ends here.

I am afraid to say that I can't upload anything from here, so if I die then what is on the YouTube channel will be the end of it.  I will not be able to get my Perfect Dark recordings out.  They will die with me, to my greatest sadness and regret.


We have a plan to get me back to America, so please do not worry too much.  This is to eliminate confusion if I disappear.  People should know why the site might go dead.

That's all, and thank you all for enjoying them.  That's all I needed to feel fulfilled.

Rest well, and don't overexert yourself. We hope you get better.
