Hello all, I got a question about the impact music disks (best music ever made on msx IMHO). There are musics on the disks with a name and without a name, they're called impact???. On impact music disk 5 there are musics called impact 200 and impact 201. Does that mean that they have made over 200 own musics?? If they have....where are the other musics..I'd like to hear them.

Naaaaa, Ben den Dulk just thought it was cool giving his songs those titles Smile At least, that's what I presume...

I hope you're wrong Latok, but it can be that the other musics were not finished or something.

Musicians are known for not releasing (or finishing) everything they made. The only thing I can say for sure is that we used random 'Emulgator' numbers in Bananenvla ;). Fondacio, you still around!? :)

Generally, musicians are also crap in coming-up with decent titles Smile

Over 200 songs? It's not that much... when I count all the FutureDisks, music disks and games I terrorized with my 'songs', I'd say I've made 400 or so... I think wolf_ also has a similar amount of (better sounding) songs Smile

But I can confirm Wolf's statement about titles. Wink

I also can confirm that I perhaps only 2% of all *my* tunes is done orso, the rest is just a few measures.. but alas you have to give it a name.. well then a number.. to keep things organised. In the end I started numbering my disks (not just music, also images, basic-stuff etc.) with Muzax3 I was somewhere around disk 35..42, after than I lost interest and disknumbering went to the dogs again Smile

Working for a project however does raise some activity/inspiration and sense-making titles, last week I did 7 RoA ingame-tunes, I was working at the speed of light ^__^. Which is exactly the reason why I don't to musicdisks anymore, I just find it boring to just release a buncha random tunes without direction, and when there's no general theme, it's very hard to complete a potential selection. I also think Impact was definitely more amused/inspired by working on those demodisks (I&W, I and T.A.) than those musicdisks.

Wolf, you appreciate BDD his work? Smile Is it any good? Smile To put it differently. WHY is BDD his work considered to be so......special?.....

It's not much different with coders. Only a small fraction of my codes was ever finished. I still have many disks full of stuff. Fortunatly, code is a lot smaller than sound banks. Smile

uh latok.. imho, bdd did a few good ones, the rest was a bit the same. Generally those demodisks were better than the musicdisks.. I think from all 5 musicdisks there could be 1 'best of' disk..

Why he was considered special at the moment impact hit the stage? Simple: it was a new sound, previously ppl were using the wrong tones from that FST soundbank (and there are a lot of them!). Those plucked and AM-Fuzz sounds -or whatever they were called - don't sound so typically FM'ish.. hence you get a new sound Smile Ofcourse, doing a few tunes like that is ok, but rehashing an old formula like that is overkill.
