View Full Version : Waverace 64

The title theme for this game was great. [Here's (http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/nintendo/n64/wrtheme.mid)] the MIDI, which represents the original pretty good as far as usually MIDIs go.
Too bad, knowing this forum, no one will probably pick it up. The best I can hope for is one or two other people supporting me, and, if I'm lucky, someone pointing out an existing mix.

Yeah, the title theme is great; I'd imagine that you've heard the punk remix that was done for the gamecube version? I'm listening to the midi now...thinking what kind of style it would lend itself to.
The tempo is a little fast for trance; it's more dnb speed. I dunno; I'll play around with it and see what I come up with.

There was a remix in the gamecube version? I don't remember that.
Anyway, yes, the title theme from Waverace is definitely one of my favorite tunes.

The Gamecube one had a remix of it? Aww... too bad I never bothered to play it. Where did you get a MIDI?

Yeah, it's kinda a hidden thing. *consults IGN*
First, on the options screen, hold X, Z, and press start to open the Password screen. Then enter DLPHNMOD. It'll unlock the "ride the dolphin" mode in Dolphin Park, complete with a short punk rendition of the Wave Race tune (it's like a minute and a half loop).
I just listened to it; it's pretty basic, just a guitar soloing the tune over some punk chugs and a simple beat. It's still fun to listen to though. :)
And Pi_R_, I've never heard a midi made of the punk style.

It's kinda funny how this turned out exactly as I said it would. Two supporters, and a pre-existing mix. Still vouching for one, though.

A nice tune I'd like to see a mix, but I don't know what kind of style this would mesh well with.
I should go play WR64 again. A nice game, if a bit lacking in content.

Rock probably, if you use the main theme, and the selecting a player theme. Throw in a small bit of original content and viola, a mix. If I ever get a chance to mix anything, that's where I'm going first. That or Serenade of Water and Zora's Domain.

There are actually a couple remixes of this theme out there, by Kadmium (http://megatwerp.com/akumusnsf/nonnsf/streetmusician/roundthree/entries/kadmium.mp3), pingosimon (http://megatwerp.com/akumusnsf/nonnsf/streetmusician/roundthree/entries/pingosimon.mp3), and cacomistle (http://dwellingofduels.com/duels/(05-08)%20August%202005%20-%20Racing%20Month/14-cacomistle-WaveRace-Jetski-DoD.mp3).
What I'd really like to see is Dolphin Park, the Japanese version of Marine Fortress, or Twilight City (by the OneUps plzkthx) remixed.
