Ys I - Dreaming
« on: January 08, 2014, 01:53:03 am »
Hi. I have a new remix for a little known game for the PC-88 (recently redone for PSP and Steam/PSN) called Ys I. This track, Dreaming, was not used in the original PC-88 version, but was a hidden track in the game somewhere. It was, however, adopted into the versions for PSP and Steam/PSN. This is one of my favorite tunes in this game, and not just Yuzo Koshiro wrote the original, though that's bitchin' too.

Anyway, aural goodness is attached herein |

Hello Demick,

That was beautiful and poetic!  :o I know it's not your original tune, but your instrumentation with the Mega Drive is just fantastic.

I played Y's on the Master System, but that's about it. Maybe I'll check out this version.

I learned some cool stuff from your track with the intro sequence (delayed attack arpeggiation FM instrument - do dreamy  :D), and also your technique with starting the first track as you parameter setting track skipping to the next frame is a handy technique. Didn't the PC-88 use a similar FM chip to the YM2612 at one point? I'm not familiar with all of FM history. Great sound, though.

Thank you for posting this,

The PC-88xx series of PCs from NEC started out with just a beeper, but then started to have a YM2203 which was mono and was split into 3 4op FM channels and 3 PSG (SSG) channels. It then begun to have a more advanced sound setup with a YM2608, which was stereo and had 6 4op FM channels, three PSG (SSG) channels, ADPCM sound source, and some rhythm patches.

The difference between these chips and SEGA's setup is that SEGA supplied their own variation of PSG technology and just used a YM2612 to fill in for the FM part of it.

IMO, they should have almost went with a YM2608 which had everything on one chip and would've been hell of a lot easier to program for in the long run.

Edit: Forgive the bump - it was a spur of the moment thing...  :-[
