(WIP) Jet Set Michael - OST [2A03]

Postby FloppyDisk » Fri Aug 05, 2016 10:55 pm

This is an OST for an original game I *might* make in the future using game maker.
The game will be similar to the old-school classic, Jet Set Willy (Not Jet Set Radio, sorry), but with several different characters and me as the protagonist. It also has a long history, with the original idea being made in 2012 and two prototypes made in 2013 and 2014 respectively, but
none of them got anywhere.
The soundtrack incorporates many different styles of music, like electronic and jazz. It's only a WIP though.
Please give me your thoughts!

P.S. - Songs #4 and #6 sound familiar, can you guess where the inspiration came from?

I'm loving the European style used in this OST, very groovy bass lines and sweet arps!

Here are my opinions regarding a few of the songs:

  • I think that towards the end, track 3 loses a bit of its focus.
  • The lead is a little too loud in track 4.
  • Track 7 is especially Follin-like, very cool!
  • Track 8 has a really nice bass, especially at the end!
  • It's hard to hear the amen break in Track 11 when all the instruments come in. I don't really know how to solve this as I don't use samples very much.
  • In tracks 7, 8, 9, and 10 (and maybe a few others I didn't notice), there are parts where long sustained notes are played without any variation in volume or vibrato. This tends to make the notes stagnate.

This is a great soundtrack, and I'm looking forward to hearing more!

And sorry, I didn't figure out the inspiration for tracks 4 and 6.

#6 is definitely this song: https://youtu.be/KC-B3Q0cRrY?t=59

Can't tell the exact one for #4, but I can tell that you have fine taste in vgm.

As one that mainly focuses on VCR7 use, I cant give that much advise, tho I feel the overall of tracks as very solid and I like it a lot, quite honestly there are some things I've heard that I will try to break down and learn them, because of the good use you've given them. Overall, good soundtrack, keep working on it. My favorite track was the 9th.... "epic" intro *wink* and the tempo change was quite unexpected, but fitted well.
You always knew my weak spot, and you knew my breaking point...
Oh... how you loved to kill me...

Wow, I've never gotten so many replies before, thanks everyone!
#6 is definitely this song: https://youtu.be/KC-B3Q0cRrY?t=59

Streets of Rage was definitely one of my main inspirations, but also this: https://youtu.be/RGCCRNwBLBg?t=120
Track 7 is especially Follin-like

Tim Follin was another inspiration, he's awesome.
It's hard to hear the amen break in Track 11 when all the instruments come in. I don't really know how to solve this as I don't use samples very much.

I'm having a lot trouble with that song, I might scrap it all together.
My favorite track was the 9th.... "epic" intro *wink* and the tempo change was quite unexpected, but fitted well.

Glad you liked it, for some odd reason that song is one of my least favorites...

If no one guesses #4 I'll tell you where it comes from.

This is pretty awesome! : D
Some of the songs do sound familiar, but the only two I found are :
#10 Sounds like this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzmqMlsM7wk
Frames 02 and 04 in #11 are basically this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbSLiNla5ik (to me at least)
Dank Memes. That's all I got.

Glad you enjoyed it!
Now that I think about it, my songs have more inspirations than I originally thought...
I have played both of those games, but I've never lost in Super Circuit (It's probably the easiest Mario Kart) so I didn't know the tune.
Here's a hint for song #4, it comes from the best vertical shmup on the nes.

I still don't know #4. I don't play many shmups \.-./
BUT
#3 is this, somewhat : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oROQFlmMhIU

Yup, that was another unintentional inspiration. I was actually planning on using it as a selection/password/menu theme, so yeah.
