With only a few days left, some late-minute entries start coming in. The latest entry for the second edition of the Scene Music Remake Challenge is from Team Bomba member Jorito. His entry, The Lost Battle is a song originally made by John Hassink (Demonseed) for the Umax game The Lost World.

To create this remake, Jorito used Renoise 1.9, with a Yamaha Motif ES-6, Roland XV-5050 and Native Instruments B4. The song was mixed in Soundtrack Pro. Jorito has also put online the original version, grab it here, and for older versions of the song check out this link.

Thanks a lot! Smile

I could be nitpicking about certain chords and stuff, but I won't, because I like the production very much.

Also, I think it's cool how it sounds like an actual in-game "lost battle".

Very nice to hear a song I made on fm-pac, like 10 years ago, sounding like this!

Well, it's regarding the 2nd part.

At 1:07 the actual "dominant" tone is "C" instead of the key "G".

Anyway, the progression to it starts a few seconds before.

Where it "normally" goes like:

[G . . . . . . . |A# . . . C . . A# |G . . . . . . . |D# . . . F . . . ]

During the "conclusion" it goes:

[G . . . . . . . |A# . . . A# . . . |C . . . . . . . |D# . . . F . . . ]

Furthermore, I miss the "breakbeat" drum style I intended for the 2nd part.

...And that's actually all nitpicking I had to do.

I stick with my opinion: It sounds great! Smile

(where did the intro in the original go, BTW)

Can you already tell us what's the next remake you've scheduled? Big smile
