View Full Version : [Music] PR 0.8 Soundtrack Preview

With the release of version 0.8, we have such a plethora of new music that a brand new PR soundtrack has been made. This is all thanks to two extremely talented PR contributors,

[R-CON]Alkali

A personal friend of mine from back home in Dublin, Ireland. He hails from an entire family of accomplished classical and jazz musicians. Alkali has composed six incredible pieces for 0.8. Ranging from the epic anthem "Heavy Resistance" to the Middle-Eastern inspired "Dune".

[R-CON]PirateX

The very definition of multi-talented! It turns out that this UH-60 Black Hawk pilot is also one hell of a composer. PirateX has contributed five songs for 0.8 (with more planned for future versions). The tune "Hunting Taliban" will be featured as the loading music for Korengal. It's very reminiscent of the Middle-Eastern Rock sound that accompanies many modern war films.

I found the link using the quote function, and it's too good to be described with words...

Why, oh why, do you have to tease us like this?!

Updated first post with a link to the video on Vimeo, much better sound quality.

Alkali

Thanks for the kind words guys :) flattered by ure words jimmy! :), hope you guys will like the new OST.

The one in the beginning is my favorite of them all.

This first track you heard is the Main Menu music I wrote for PR. I had a few diferent ones, this one I taught sounded like the one :)

Outlawz7
2008-08-01, 00:18
Will you be keeping the old Disciple's soundtrack?

Deadfast
2008-08-01, 00:19
I love the action track that goes from 1:03. Quite a nice contrast to the last, calming one ;).

Also the track from 3:07 is very cool.

PR should release a sound track :D

Back in the days, a download was availible from the media site. We should, by all means, get that up anew. Sounds good guys, really does. I am just missing a bit more notable bass on some of the tracks, a little to, light, imo... Bass makes it a little more serious. Keep it up, and dont leave us hanging anymore - throw 0.8 to the masses!!

G.Drew
2008-08-01, 00:22
excellent, hands off to the guys!

Deadfast
2008-08-01, 00:22
What the hell?

Since when I can't edit my own posts?


Anyway, after reading Outlawz's post above mine I realized how much I like the disciple mec 3 night song. Any chance of hearing this one?

OkitaMakoto
2008-08-01, 00:26
PR should release a sound track :D

The first post says itll be available, dont know if it said that when you posted. But yeah, there will be a zip file of all the songs.

My only question is will this compilation of the songs be included... sure its simple, and we'll have the full songs, but I really like this as well :P Nothing profound, but it flows nice enough at times.

SuperTimo
2008-08-01, 00:27
ahh the MEC 3 song, so epic i have it on my MP3 player :D

2008-08-01, 00:27
Pretty awsome music there. It sounds so professional.

Deadfast
2008-08-01, 00:31
Even if there won't be a download (zip? What a flashback :D) you can always rip the music from the game files ;).

Conman51
2008-08-01, 00:41
very nice...one of the things i like the most about pr is teh sounds and mucis for loading

What about some background radio chat sound effects in some songs ?

and there was me thinking that this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBGIQ7ZuuiU) would happen what with the recent style of updates lol

Im very impressed the transformation continues :D this game is almost totally unrecognisable grahpically and audibly from the origional... Just that PR menu into play that weve seen the Beta for ;) would be a perfect visual accompaniment with such an awesome backing track :D

Great job on the quality and compositions.

Thanks guys.

Look forward to hearing them in game.

Although I'm sure I'll end up pinching my favourites for personal use.

HughJass

3:07 is very unique, I liked it best. All of them are pretty epic though...great great job devs!

Wow, stunning. :) I wonder if the PR team can put it up on itunes . . .

1. Itunes deal
2. Internet fame
3. Music star careers
4. ???
5. Profit! :thumbsup:

Superb stuff here.
I especially enjoy the Classical-World music fusions.
Some seem to be feature film standard and therefore would be brilliant in PR videos and machinima that will undoubtabley appear after the new release.
Im liking the down-tempo and heavily syncopated beats aswell, definately gives it that combat edge.

I can only echo what others have said, fantastic work here James and composers. I think it would be great to see all of the vBF2 music eventually replaced as this mod has stepped so far beyond the realms of vBF2.

gclark03
2008-08-01, 04:40
The part around 2:01 is the best.

maverick551
2008-08-01, 05:45
Definitely 2:03, absolutely amazing, I never would have expected this much sounds creation for a modification, its incredible. I hope you add these to I Tunes etc. I would buy it in a heart beat.

Will it be possible to download the full mp3's to be able to have them on my iTunes etc? Atmospheric music like this goes down really well with some of the games I play, and I'd love to be able to listen to it at other times than PR loading menus.

AWESOME work guys, seriously.

Heskey
2008-08-01, 11:42

As mentioned above by another poster; I would very happily PAY for this if you want to sell it.

Thanks guys, its great to see so much great feedback from everyone here on the forums, your all legends :D, I hope the new music for PR adds a different buzz to the whole mod! :wink:

Unless having your mates copy of cubase that he'll probably never ask to get back counts...

Epic tunes though, really fitting.

Now, when the names are posted I can tell you my favorites:
01:00 - PirateX - Battle Formation
02:00 - Alkali - Heavy Resistance
03:00 - PirateX - Terracotta
03:20 - Alkali - The Reality Check

I personally believe that Sound, and Music are the most important part of any movie, game, or other piece. This music is amazing and helps bring the environments to life, and really sets in the atitude of situations. Good work.

It is Much like batman begins, and pirats of the carribean, These movies would have been much lower on the impressive scale if they did not have thier epic, dramatic and captivating soundtrack to accompany the pictures.

Good Work.

On the inside yes, but that doesnt mean I was given sneak peak as to what maps will be given what songs. let alone aht song my amp[if releasesed] will get.

But yeah, for sure, this music is absolutely amazing!!

They are jsut class, well done. I think the current orginal music/remix's (like Bi Ming for example) make a real difference to the atmos when waiting to start a round, so it can only be a good thing to get more in there.

Great stuff, I particularly liked PirateX - Terracotta. Double good and chips!
