I have a confession to make!
After my post about video game music and references – deliberate or otherwise – to pop music of the day, I remembered my old AMRWolf project and the ProTracker module I wrote to serve as its title music:
Wow – does that say *1996*? Now I feel old! Anyhow, bonus points to anyone who can identify the piece of 80s pop music that inspired the backing track…
The module itself, in case anyone’s interested, can be found here. (Yes, imaginatively titled “Untitled2”. I could occasionally come up with music tracks that were worth not deleting on the spot, but I never could come up with decent names for them! I still can’t, for the very occasional pieces I come up with these days – “Ode to a Girl who Works in Lidl” *really* doesn’t cut it!)
The sampled breaks were themselves created in ProTracker, then rendered down to a single sample to squeeze as much from the 4-channel sound chip as possible. Sadly I don’t have the source tracks any more.
