Dreamy. Ethereal. Beautiful.

Loving the vocals there, TO.

Now if you played Hearts half as good as you mixed... ;)

Wow. This is excellent. The vocals do indeed add so much to the mix. My interest was kept throughout the whole song. Apart from the ending, which faded a bit too quickly for my liking, this is ace.

Wow, I'm impressed. TO can sing? This piece makes my heart flutter a little bit. :oops: It sounds like something out of Cirque du Soleil, with their live musicians and mystical ambience. Beautiful...

I still remember Raptor's soundtrack. A beautiful compilation of tunes covering a wide range of emotions. This mix definitely captures the feeling of the level*, but I had a hard time filtering out the source tune. It just doesn't have that Raptor flavor to it.

But this remix still rocks. Very new agey, laid back, smooth. Another awesome piece from TO.

Edit: This song has been playing nonstop for over an hour, and I'm not even remotely tired of it.

Edit 2: 2 hours and still going strong.

*Even though the source is listed as Level1.mid, this is definitely not the tune for the first level of the first sector, Bravo Sector. Bravo Level 1 is a chiptune tour-de-force that screams for a prog rock makeover. Perhaps this is Tango 1, but I don't have the game in front of me at the moment, and my memory does have its limits.

Finally a Raptor mix! And one from TO, none-the-less. Very Groovy.

And speaking of Rise of the Triad... RotT has too many good songs unremixed. Get cracking people! :P

Reminds me of the song they used for "Kid's Story" in the Animatrix. Raptor Reloaded? Heh.

Nice job, TO. Vocals were totally tite.

TO for the win here. This is a very dreamlike atmosphere, save for the random stabs of the instrument I'm assuming is the bell that sounds like the guitar referred to in the judge's panel. All part of the gimmick, though, it fits. Damn good vocals, too. They push this mix up a level.

Reminds me of the song they used for "Kid's Story" in the Animatrix.

That's actually pretty ironic that you pointed that out. Some of my music influence has come from Peace Orchestra (The guys who did the song in Kid's Story.) I really liked their laid back, and yet bass/distortion driven style.

And for the record, the source is labelled as "level02.mid" in my archive. However I'm not sure if that links up properly either. It's definitely one of the songs in the shareware version as well as the full version.

Thanks for the comments so far.

I've never played the game in question so pairing this track up against the source is a tad hard for so Im going treat of this as a totally new piece of music. And that said this remix is a very cool minialistic song, Not much happens here but at the same time it really just works to offer a very fulfilling experience. I dont normally like this type of music but I enjoyed this, Top marks again TO... again!
All glory to the Hypnotoad!

badass man. I dig your style, and have yet to find a mix from you that I do not enjoy listening to. But this one is hella tight. nice job with the vocals, I hope to hear you in your songs more.

I think Gray said it best when he dubbed you the "Groove King".

Great job, you are my alternate Enigma :)

Ahhhhh I remember this game! I saw the name of the game remixed and I was like NO FREAKING WAY! I got the demo from my gravix* CD. Nice mix. Really good! Don't remember any of the source music though, that was quite a long time ago.

I don't remember any of the Raptor music myself, but I did like the game. Therefore, I can only comment on the music as it stands alone, outside of its connection to any game.

I like the song (note the stress on "like" - it doesn't go beyond that). It has a "rainy day" feel to it, and I really like that style. It's a great ambient groove song.

Now, it's not the best ambient groove piece I've ever heard, so I can't say it's my favorite. I'm not sure why, really: it just doesn't rank at the top for me. I do know for certain that I don't like the way it fades out, and the two-minute marks falls apart to my ears. Other than that, I can't really point out a flaw that I can say is the absolute reason I don't put this song in the top ranks. I want to blame it on the samples used, but I can't even be certain of that. Sorry.

However, I do enjoy it despite its flaws, and will be adding it to my playlist.

This song has been great to listen to while programming, and definitely has lasting appeal.

I was listening to it heavily after first downloading it, but then I shifted it back as new songs became available. But after a couple of weeks, the vocals just kept getting stuck in my head, and I had to track down where I they came from. :)

Great work, keep it up!

I'm confused. Is this song, "You can hear the Cry of the Planet" in FF7 and Raptor? Sorry if I'm being an idiot. Great calming song btw.
